“I’m a Mover Walking with Jesus, shaker, the salt of the earth"
WOULD YOU LIKE TO HAVE FAITH THAT MOVES THE MOUNTAINS IN YOUR LIFE?
By Cheryl Thomas
Mark 11:23New Living Translation (NLT)
23 I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart.
Have faith in God for His words are true! Jesus says to speak to our difficulties or “mountains” to “Be removed”. When we believe what we say through faith in Jesus Name we will see them removed.
Jesus said, “I tell you the truth”.
This is the first point we need to really grab a hold of.
We need to know beyond anything else that Jesus ALWAYS tells us the TRUTH.
Now He is going to tell us what we can do in His truth:
“You can say to this Mountain ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea’ and it WILL HAPPEN.”
This is a fact.
A stated truth from Jesus who will never lie to us.
BUT there is a condition; you must believe and not doubt and then you will have what you say—which is to agree with God’s Word.
What is the definition of believe? It is an action word. A verb. It means to accept and feel sure of a truth.
What does it mean to “doubt”? Doubt is a form of fear, uncertainty, insecurity and lack of belief in something. Jesus is saying not to be fearful or insecure about what He says but to be confident, be accepting and feel sure that what He says is absolutely, true.
What is the “mountain” that Jesus might be referring to?
Think of it this way. Here you are on a path following the Lord and suddenly or not so suddenly a large looming mountain blocks your path and you cannot go forward because it has blocked your way.
This could be a problem or difficulty; this could be spiritual warfare or sin, or some other block that has come to stop your walk with the Lord. If the Lord has set a path for you, He wants you to complete it.
This mountain needs to be removed so you can continue walking with Jesus in the path He has for you.
So, you can reach your destiny and walk in His plans for your life.
So, your life can be fruitful; a life flowing in good works that He planned for the glory of God. There is a plan only you can fulfill with your unique calling and gifts and talents in the Lord.
Doubt argues against God’s Word and plans. Belief agrees with God’s Truth and enforces it with words, actions and prayers. Faith will say “I will believe whatever God says!” Yes! Be a Mover and a Shaker in the Lord!
Some questions you might ponder:
What are some of the “mountains” in your life? What difficulties would you like to see removed from your life?
What does “faith” mean to you?
What does “doubt” meant to you?
Why is it so important what words you say?
How will removing these difficulties and road blocks bring you closer to God?
You can overcome and walk with God’s power in your life!
