The Word of God is the complete book of Truth. It is filled with Bible verses that speak to every part of our life. Today, I want to share Bible verses about mountains with you.
God uses images of mountains, hills, and valleys in His Word. These bible verses show how mighty He is. They speak to our high moments and low moments.
We read about many people in the Bible who had an encounter with God on a mountain top. The mountains are so big that they give us a great picture of God’s great power. We need to have and we need to believe that God is always with us and we don’t need to be afraid.
I encourage you to memorize these Bible verses so you can always remember God’s strength and power within you.
