Beware Falling Formations

In ancient times mountains were both landmarks and symbols of religious significance. Because of their majesty and immensity they were thought of as timeless. As monuments which extended toward the heavens, they were thought of as potential meeting-places between God and man. In fact, God did meet with Moses the Law-giver on Mount Sinai, and the people cowered in fear when they saw it smoking.

That incident was later used as imagery in the song of Deborah and Barak after the defeat of Jabin, the king of Canaan.

The mountains melted from before the LORD, even that Sinai from before the LORD God of Israel.

Judges 5:5

This is a good reminder to us when we think about the power and danger that may be exhibited when the Lord takes action. For some of us, it is easy to look at the “mountains” in our lives: our jobs, our families, our friends, our government, our intelligence, and our health, and to believe that these things will always be there for us – as constant as a mountain range on the horizon. However, there is nothing in our lives that will stand before the power of the Lord if He decides to move against it.

Those who live at the foot of great mountains know the danger of rockslides, and those who worship at the feet of the Almighty God need to remember to reverence Him constantly.
