Matthew 21:17-22 NKJV
“Then He left them and went out of the city to Bethany, and He lodged there. Now in the morning, as He returned to the city, He was hungry. And seeing a fig tree by the road, He came to it and found nothing on it but leaves, and said to it, “Let no fruit grow on you ever again.” Immediately the fig tree withered away. And when the disciples saw it, they marveled, saying, “How did the fig tree wither away so soon?” So Jesus answered and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done. And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.”
Everyone will face problems in this life. In the above verses the word “mountain” refers to our problems or negative situations. According to the words of Jesus if we have faith and do not doubt, we can speak to our problems (situations) and it will change them. Whatever we ask in prayer, believing, we will receive. We don’t speak to our problems in our own power but in the power of the Holy Spirit and through the authority Jesus has given us.
Zechariah 4:6-7 NKJV
“So he answered and said to me: “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the Lord of hosts. ‘Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain! And he shall bring forth the capstone With shouts of “Grace, grace to it!”
What are we speaking to the mountains in our lives, the mountains in our families, the mountains in our churches, the mountains in our countries and the mountains in our world? May we stop talking about the mountains and start talking to the mountains.
