And Jesus answered them, Truly I say to you, if you have faith (a firm relying trust) and do not doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, Be taken up and cast into the sea, it will be done.” (Matthew 21:21, AMP)
We’ve all had seasons when the challenges of life feel overwhelming. During those times, it’s easy to be tempted to talk about how bad things are. Maybe you received a bad medical report, or maybe you’re facing a financial obstacle. The more you talk about something, the bigger it becomes in your mind. Instead, you’ve got to dig your heels in and say, “No, I am not going to give life to that defeat. I am not going to speak sickness over myself. I’m not going to speak lack. I’m not going to speak fear. I’m choosing a different report. I believe the report of the Lord which says, ‘I can do all things through Christ. I can defeat this sickness. I can break this addiction. I can have peace in my home. I can see restoration in my relationships.’ ”
Remember, even if you don’t see how things could ever work out, God does. You’ve got to speak His Word over those mountains in your life and declare favor over those situations. Instead of talking to God about how big your problems are, talk to your problems about how big your God is! As you speak to your mountains, they will be moved, and you will walk forward into the victory God has prepared for you!
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father, I declare that I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. I speak to the mountains in my life and say, “Be moved!” I declare blessings, favor and victory over my future in Jesus’ name. Amen!
The cool thing is that this verse is so often taken without a geographical context, in this verse Jesus is upon the mount of olives staring across the Dead Sea at a mountain call “Herodian.” 50 years before this Herod the Great conquered an army in his greatest victory in a valley along the Dead Sea so he ordered 1000’s of slaves to work 18 years to build a mount in the place of the valley, with a fortress on top that he could live in for 30 years with food or water if he was under siege!
But why is Jesus talking about it?
Chances are that when Jesus was born the Herodian castes a shadow over Bethlehem, much like a sun rising behind a mountain, Jesus was born in the shadow of an evil power, and says if you have faith you can throw that power into the sea! Be blessed today!
