Give Me the Mountain / Emini Futures Trading - Tuesday February 9, 2010


"Now therefore, give me this mountain of which the Lord spoke in that day"
(Joshua 14:12, NKJV)
For each of us, there is a land of Hebron that God has set before us and His desire for each of us is that we stand up and declare, "I want that mountain!" Goal-setting is for everyone.

Hear what Caleb said in verse 11 of our text: "I am still as strong today as I was in the day Moses sent me." Caleb said, "as my strength was then, so my strength is now, for war and for going out and coming in.

"Caleb realized that it was not enough just to set a goal for his life. Nor was it enough just to set a goal in line with God's purpose. Caleb realized that once the goal was set, he would have to fight and struggle and work in order to reach that goal.

Reaching our goals will not be easy. It wasn't for Caleb and it won't be for us. For Caleb to claim his mountain, he had to run the giants out of the land. As we strive to reach our goals, as we attempt to claim our mountain, there will also be giants that we will have to overcome.

There will be the giant of adversity. We will never attempt anything significant in life without someone opposing us. They will stand in our way. They will criticize us. They will discourage us. The giant of adversity will have to be overcome.

There will also be the giant of failure. As we move toward our goal, there will be many setbacks along the way. The key factor in achieving success will be our ability to move past these temporary failures to eventual victory.

There will be the giant of laziness. One of the greatest tragedies in the church today is Christians who fail to realize their potential and reach their goals because they are too lazy to put out the effort.

As a Man Thinketh by James Allen

Chapter Four - Thought and Purpose

To put away aimlessness and weakness, and to begin to think with purpose, is to enter the ranks of those strong ones who only recognize failure as one of the pathways to attainment; who make all conditions serve them, and who think strongly, attempt fearlessly, and accomplish masterfully.

Having conceived of his purpose, a man should mentally mark out a straight pathway to its achievement, looking neither to the right nor to the left. Doubts and fears should be rigorously excluded; they are disintegrating elements which break up the straight line of effort, rendering it crooked, ineffectual, useless. Thoughts of doubt and fear never accomplish anything, and never can. They always lead to failure. Purpose, energy, power to do, and all strong thoughts cease when doubt and fear creep in.

The will to do springs from the knowledge that we can do. Doubt and fear are the great enemies of knowledge, and he who encourages them, who does not slay them, thwarts himself at every step.

He who has conquered doubt and fear has conquered failure. His every thought is allied with power, and all difficulties are bravely met and wisely overcome. His purposes are seasonably planted, and they bloom and bring forth fruit which does not fall prematurely to the ground. 

Thought allied fearlessly to purpose becomes creative force. He who knows this is ready to become something higher and stronger than a mere bundle of wavering thoughts and fluctuating sensations. He who does this has become the conscious and intelligent wielder of his mental powers.
