1 John 5:13-21

Haiti is mountainous so it is not surprising that a familiar Haitian proverb refers to them. Like most proverbs, “Beyond the mountain is a mountain” is used in various ways. One meaning is that life has ups and downs. Another meaning is that as one goes on in life, one sees cycles. An alternative meaning is that if one fails, there will be other opportunities. It can also be used by someone who is weak to say that they are backed by someone stronger.

God is like the mountain behind us. He keeps us and sustains us. “But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one” (2 Thessalonians 3:3). We must remember that God and Satan are not equals. In Psalm 73:23-34, David writes: “Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory.” The Creator of the universe holds our hand and guides us through each day. We are assured of glory as our final destination.
