All of us has had one time or another to face or deal with some mountains in our lives. It does not matter if you are young or old, all of us has had to face or deal with some mountains in our lives.
It does not matter if you are rich or poor, educated or not, all of us had had to face or deal with some mountains in our lives.
It does not matter if you live in the Westside, Downtown Las Vegas, Summerlin, Green Valley, Seven Hills, Silverado Community, Aliante, Sunrise Mountain, or Spring Valley, all of us has had to face or deal with some mountains in our lives. It does not matter if you attend the Booker Elementary School, West Prep, Canyon Springs High School or UNLV, all of us has had to face or deal with some mountains in our lives.
It does not matter if you are single, married, widowed, or divorced; all of us has had to face or deal with some mountains in our lives. You can be saved, sanctified, and filled with the Holy Ghost ; you can belong to Second Baptist Church or St. Paul Church of God in Christ ; all of us has had to face and deal with some mountains in our lives. In matter of fact, some of us maybe facing or dealing with some mountains in their lives at this very moment.
In other words, we are not immune from facing or dealing with mountains in our lives. But there is a sweet relief in knowing that no matter what mountain you are facing and no matter what mountain you are dealing with right now, just be assured that they can be removed; because God is bigger than your mountain. In other words the mountains in your life are not to control you, but by the power of God, you control the mountains; for Jesus has said in Mark 11:22-23 "Have faith in God, 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."
Now it must be understood that the mountain that Jesus was talking about being removed out of your life, you must understand he was not talking about Mount Charleston, Sunrise Mountain, Red Rock Mountain, Black Mountain, Mount Everest, or any other physical mountains that we see in the earth. The mountains that Jesus was talking about being removed are
the mountains of obstacles,
mountains of problems,
mountains of difficulties,
mountains of setbacks,
mountains of stumbling blocks,
mountains of troubles,
mountains of burdens,
mountains of hardship,
mountains of defeat
mountains of fear,
mountains of uncontrolled anger and bitterness
mountains of discouragement,
mountains of disappointments,
mountains of failure,
mountains of depression and sorrow,
mountains of peer pressure
mountains of negative thinking,
mountains of low self esteem ,
mountains of sickness,
mountains of crisis.

It is anything that keeps families from having peace and love to rule in their homes. It is anything that keeps husband and wives from loving each other. It is anything that keeps children from honoring and obeying their parents. It is anything that keeps children from doing well in school.

That is, you need to trust God. You need to have confidence in God. You need to rely on God. You need to believe on and in God. Jesus said in John 14:1 that when are facing life’s mountains, He says to "Let not your heart be troubled, you believe in God, believe also in me."
