I spoke to my brother-in-law just as the lockdown started here in England. He was on self-quarantine for two weeks. I asked why he was self-containing himself and he mentioned that he had to cut short a trip to the far East. Apparently, he was meeting up with a few friends from around the world to climb mount Everest (the highest or should I say, the tallest mountain in the world).
I mentioned to him that climbing up and down our stairs at home was a trying feat for me not to talk about climbing the highest mountain in the world. I just pictured myself standing at the bottom of mount Everest and attempting to climb it. There is no way I would be able to make it unless someone was kind enough to airlift me up to the summit in a helicopter!
Our lives are often like that – standing at the bottom of the mountain of life wondering if you will have the strength or stamina to carryon. The good news is that God has given every believer the Holy Spirit who can, using a figure of speech, airlift us supernaturally up the mountain of life. Let us rely on the Holy Spirit who Jesus said will guide us and help us. Jesus states in bible, John 14:16, “And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever”.
Have a great month ahead.
