Makeshift Mountain

Makeshift Mountain is Just what it says it is! Makeshift. Satan creates before us what appears to be a mountain. And he makes it look as if it is impassable. It is a road block that appears to have stopped our progress. Has it? That is entirely up to you! Remember, NEVER run from Satan. Stand your ground! Psalm 40:2 says that He set my feet on a rock and established my goings. That rock is Jesus Christ! We need not back down from Satan; for greater is He that is in me than He that is in the world! Donít let the devil discourage you or hinder your path. For Jesus is the Truth and the Light. He is our Strength, our Refuge, our Defense, our Mighty Rock. Our Help in time of need! So stand up! Look up! And lift up Jesus! For Satan has no power over us!! ďLet everything that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord!Ē (Psalm 150:6)

In Christ,

Pastor Tony Sutton
