New King James Version
For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.
We Have Been Given Authority To Move Mountains!
This year we are going to continue to speak to the mountains in our lives and “face-off” the giants that have threatened us with destruction. Too long the mountains have been looming before us as strongholds and obstacles to our walking as God wants us to walk in the Spirit. We have thought that we did not have enough faith to move them but it is not the size of our faith but the level of belief and trust we have in the Lord. We might think that it is the same thing— faith and trust –but in actuality, it is not.
We have faith that God is quite able to move the mountains and do the impossible but do we believe that they will move when we speak to the mountains out of our own mouth? Do we believe that we can move them just because He said we could? God is telling us to trust His Word and to trust Him to perform that Word as we speak it! Open up our mouth and speak to the mountains and they will be removed. Remember when Paul asked the Lord to remove an evil spirit that came to torment him and the Lord kept telling him that His grace was sufficient?”
2 Corinthians 12:7-9
And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure. Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
It was not that the Lord told Paul that He would not take it away but that He had given Paul the authority ( His grace) to remove it himself. God is well able and willing to remove the mountain BUT His will was to use Paul to move it by allowing Paul to use His authority and speak as God speaks to bring the mountain down. And in this case, get rid of the demon spirit.
“And these signs will follow those who believe: In My Name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
This year 2021 we are going to SPEAK HIS WORD with boldness and confidence in His authority to see impossible things happen! God is still sovereign and His will WILL be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
Move that mountain and cast out that demon in the Name of Jesus!
