Ask God for a Mountain (1)

Ask God for a Mountain (1)

“Give me this mountain.”        Jos 14:12 NJKV

Why would someone ask God for a mountain? Because when you tackle something bigger than yourself: (1) you grow; (2) you learn to depend on God; (3) you get to celebrate big victories. Caleb said: “Here I am today, eighty-five years old! I am still as strong today as the day Moses sent me out; I’m just as vigorous to go out to battle now as I was then. Now give me this hill country that the Lord promised me that day. You yourself heard then that the Anakites were there and their cities were large and fortified, but, the Lord helping me, I will drive them out just as he said” (vv. 10-12 NIV). Anybody can occupy the flat ground, but it takes faith in God to tackle a mountain. What’s more, that’s where the Anakites—the giants—lived. These guys were so big they caused ten of Moses’ spies to say, “We seemed like grasshoppers next to them” (See Nu 13:33). You’d think at eighty-five Caleb would have asked for a nice condo in Shalom Acres! But no, he wanted another battle and another victory before he checked out. Stop asking God for a problem-free life, otherwise you might die of boredom. It’s in working to solve problems and overcome challenges that you become the person God wants you to be. So ask Him for a task that will keep you learning, growing, uncomfortable, and hungry for significance. And when you pray, “God, use me,” be prepared to encounter four things: adventure, danger, risk, and reward. How about it—are you up for a little excitement?
