What do we mean by mountain? (According to Wikipedia) A mountain is a large landform that stretches above the surrounding land in a limited area, usually in the form of a peak.
Spiritually, “A mountain may be considered as a hindrance or obstruction to someone’s progress. It could be anything that stands between us and the actualization of our destiny”.
Beloved, if I may ask you? What is the mountain in your life? What stands in the way of your progress? What holds you back from going forward and fulfilling God's plan?
*A mountain gives the assurance that there is something great/precious on the other side, and we may never know the extent of the deposits God has put inside us until problems/challenges come.
Please Note: The size of the mountain facing us is directly proportional to our destinies. Heavy weight champions for God, sometimes face heavy weight mountains, while baby Christians face little challenges, in order to ‘exercise their faith’.
How can we deal with our mountains?
By Speaking to the mountain in our lives: " 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." (Mark 11:23).
In this verse, Jesus talks about the power of speaking to our mountains and having belief. He instructs us to "say." Say means to ‘utter aloud, express in words’.
Why are the words from our mouth so important?
(Prov. 18:21). "Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit"
(Matt. 21:19). " 19 And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away."
Note: The fig tree responded to what Jesus said.
What hinders us from speaking to our mountains? *Unbelief
MATTHEW 17:20 NKJ “20 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,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.”
*Speak God's Word to that mountain your life!
*Speak to the devil and his forces and tell them to get out of your affairs.
*Speak to sickness and tell it that it can't stay in your body. I Corinthians 6: 19 “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;”
*Speak to doubt, fear, and worry in your life to Go. 2 Timothy 1:7 “ For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
Song: Mountain be thou be moved, Oh yee mountain, be thou be moved…
Zechariah 4:6-7 “6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts. 7 Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain:..”
1. Oh ye mountain before me, become a plain ground in Jesus’ name. (Barrenness, failure, loneliness, unemployment, untimely death etc)
2. I speak in the name of Jesus – REPITITIVE FAILURES AND MISSING OF OPPORTUNITIES – become HISTORY
The reasons for your stagnation will be revealed, addressed, and eliminated
No matter the darkness around you this year, your light will shine bright
God will speak peace to every storm in your life.
