SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE - Thursday, February 20, 2003 That Mountain Most of us have barriers in our lives that prevent us from realizin9 our hopes for the near or distant future. Perhaps our education was interrupted or maybe we just "got off on the wrong foot". God tells us that when we believe in His Word, we possess limitless power through Him, the Creator of the universe. In Numbers 20:9, God. ~losearoclaimed to His follower , =Speak ye unto the rock before their eye~ and it shall give forth His water." In Matthew 21:21, we read... =If ye say unto this mountain, 'Be thou removed and be thou cast into the sea', it shall be done." Of utmost importance, we must really believe in our prayer to God. Mark 9:23 says simply but profoundly "Be not afraid, only believe. All things are passible to him that believoth." Then...wait. =In quietness and in confidence shall be your strength.llsa.30:1~ Be patient and have confidence in your Heavenly Father's will for your future. He will answer your gayer in His time and in His wey. Try not to be discooraoeL Keep in touch with your "Heavenly Father through daily prayer and weekly worship. You, too, can "command that mountain". SUH|AY HOHDAY TU[:SDAY W[DHi~Y THURSDAY RilDAY , SATURDAY I,~ I.~e , L~ Itmmu I~ limms Itm,ms R:ZB-3~ 10:ZS-3T 19:!-II R:l-8.
