God was offering encouragement to the people and the leaders of the time that with His help, the huge challenge towering before them like a “great mountain”, would become level ground.
We are encountering a mountain-sized obstacle right now in our state. And like the Israelites so many years ago, it is easy for us to get focused on the obstacles and the enemies.
Dr. David Jeremiah eloquently states that regardless of the obstacles, “Zechariah reminds us that no difficulty or set of circumstances in our lives can ever block the Lord from accomplishing His best for us. He can make Kilimanjaro into a field as flat as Kansas – or else give us the strength and agility to climb right over the mountain and continue on our way. If the obstacles in our lives seem oversized, we need to refocus our eyes on our loving, gracious, powerful God, who is bigger still.”
May we refocus our eyes on the Almighty One, and brave the enemy threats as we stand for biblical truth, life, and freedom in the Land of Enchantment.
