< Dear family, I wasn’t sure how to start my next devotion until just today. But then I read a post-it note in French class that said, “La foi deplace les montagnes.” When translated from French to English this phrase means faith moves mountains. I think this is just a beautiful saying. The best part of it is that it’s true. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me,” Philippians 4:13. I believe that a lot of the time teens limit themselves. They say “I can’t do that” or “I wish I could do that.” All too often we forget to pray and ask for God’s help. He is here for us. He is with us and with Him we can accomplish anything. We must be sure to act following His will, but if what we seek to accomplish pleases our heavenly father then we should not stop ourselves from doing it. Often we stop ourselves due to others’ opinions. We get put into boxes that we are afraid to venture from. God tells us though that we should not be afraid. He doesn’t leave us. Why should we be worried about anyone’s opinion aside from our God’s? Deuteronomy 31:8 states, “the Lord is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” So we should not be afraid to break free of our stereotypes and do great things for God because He is walking with us allowing us to achieve things that we believe to be impossible.
