Speak God’s word to the mountain

Truly I tell you, whoever says to this mountain, Be lifted up and thrown into the sea! and does not doubt at all in his heart but believe that what he says will take place, it will be done for him.–Mark 11:23

When Jesus said that we are to speak to the mountain, commanding it to be lifted up and thrown into the sea, He was making a radical statement.

See, we usually talk about the “mountains,” or challenges, in our lives, but God’s Word instructs us to talk to them. And when we do, we must respond to them with the Word of God.

In Luke 4, when satan was trying to tempt Jesus in the wilderness, the Lord responded to every trial by speaking Scripture. He repeatedly quoted verses that met the lies and deception of the devil head-on.

We have a tendency to try this for awhile, but when we do not see quick results, we stop speaking the Word to our problems and begin once again to speak our feelings. Persistence is a vital link to obtaining victory.

Constantly speaking the Word is powerful and absolutely necessary in overcoming any problem or negative situation. Know what you believe and be determined to stick with it to the end.

From the book “Promises for our everyday lives”
