Insurmountable Mountains

Climbing the world’s highest peak seemed like an impossible goal. To locals and visitors alike, Mount Everest was an awe-inspiring sight.

Everest presented what every mountaineer considered the ultimate challenge. What would it be like to reach its summit? Could it even be done?

Many attempted the feat but all had failed. Some even lost their lives in the process. Yet the elusive peak towered before them, defiantly magnificent.

Then, on this day in 1953, Edmund Hillary of New Zealand and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay of Nepal became the first explorers to conquer the summit. They overcame countless obstacles on their way to the top, including violent winds, extreme cold, icefalls, and glaciers. Against all odds, the two men had shown the world that it was possible. In the decades since, Mount Everest has been scaled hundreds of times. But Hillary and Norgay blazed the trail and showed that what seemed insurmountable was in fact not so.

Many people, when they face trying circumstances, simply give up. But the Bible reminds us that God can do anything. As Jesus said, With God everything is possible (v. 26).

Has God given you a dream that seems overwhelming? Do you have a challenge that seems too difficult or a problem that doesn’t seem to have a solution?

Ask God for the wisdom you need. And trust Him. He is looking for people who will step out in faith and do bold things.
