Summary: Prayer, & faith. Believing in the one who can. Not us but Him!
Speak To Your Mountain
Mark 11:23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
It could be said like this for you ho need help in understanding.
"For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will come to pass, he will have whatever he says.
1."Talk to mountains? Do you think I’m crazy?"
Jesus talked to things, & taught that "whoever" could also speak to mountains.
A mountain is primarily any obstacle that stands in your way.
We are faced with obstacles in our lives. Most Christians pray to God. But Jesus told us to speak directly to the obstacle & tell it to be removed.
There is nothing wrong with discussing things with God. You should. But when something is blocking your progress.
Jesus said YOU should tell it to get out of the way.
Most Christians just speak to God about the mountain. Instead of following Jesus ’ directions & speaking directly to the mountain.
Are you just talking to God about the problems in your life. Tell the Devil to get lost.
Instead of talking directly to the problems & telling them to be removed?
Matthew 17:20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
Again in English so we can understand.
So Jesus said to them, "Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, `Move from here to there,’ & it will move; & nothing will be impossible for you.
We forget that with God nothing is impossible. Genesis 18:14a Is any thing too hard for the LORD? …
Who ever thought that man could walk on water out side Jesus. Peter did. Why? Because he believed he could with the power of the Lord.
Matthew 14:28-29 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
According to Jesus! Unbelief keeps us from speaking to our mountains.
What is the mountain in your life? What stands in the way of your progress? What holds you back from going forward & fulfilling God’s plan?
Speak God’s Word to that mountain!
Speak to the devil & his forces. Hey tell them to get out of your affairs. Just do it Jesus’ name & not your own.
Speak to sickness & tell it that it can’t stay in your body.
Speak to debt & financial lack. Tell them to be removed from your life.
Speak to doubt, fear, & worry. Tell them to be gone.
If you say, "I just can’t believe it would do any good for me to talk to problems," That’s why you still have them.
Read what Jesus said again, & again.
We forget that we are the children of God. We must believe in Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
I will speak to the mountains that try to hold me back. Matthew 19:26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. Mark 9:23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
2.WHEN YOU SPEAK, GOD HEARS
A daddy was listening to his child say his prayer “Dear Harold.” At this, dad interrupted & said, “Wait a minute, “How come you called God, “Harold”? The little boy looked up and said, “That’s what they call Him in church. You know the prayer we say, “Our Father, who art in Heaven, Harold be Thy name.” Those who pray keep alive the watch fires of faith. For the most part we don’t even know their names. Such is the case of someone who prayed on a day long ago. His name is not important. He is important not because of who he was. But because of what he did.
