6Then he answered and spake unto me, saying,
This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying,
Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.
He replied, "Because you have so little faith.
I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed,
you can say to this mountain,
'Move from here to there' and it will move.
Nothing will be impossible for you."
I AM THE MOUNTAIN - I need to be moved! It is myself that gets in my way.
My habits, self will... "nature vs nurture stuff".
When I don't start my day R E A L L Y centering myself in HIM. Taking the moment to SAY "this is the day the LORD hath Made". Then committing my day to Him. Taking time to TALK with HIM, Walk with Him, Sing to Him, Read his Word.... Yikes!......
He is my purpose, my direction... my strength and my Joy....
When I don't start my morning out like that... then I fall - NO,NO, NO - I step off of the path (ah, I was starting to give myself an excuse saying "I fall". Saying fall is an opening to an excuse. I may fall but mostly I CHOSE to step off the path, willingly, knowingly... stupidly (Not really a word) like shoving a piece of banana bread in my mouth... or calling someone a Jerk.
Yet, I know even a fall occurs mostly because we're NOT looking the right way.
Your word is a lamp to my feet
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.
