"And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you." Matthew 17:20
What do you do with the mountain that you are facing? Do you cry about it? Do you complain about it? Do you threaten it? Do you try to "chisel" away at it? Do you try to find a way around it? No, you "speak" to it. Speaking to the mountain is what causes it to move. But you can't just speak anything. You speak the Word of God-- the scriptures, the promises of God, Biblical truths and principles.
God's word is the weapon and the instrument that causes mountains to move. His word is the only thing powerful enough to change the situation. And when you speak it, you have to speak it in faith. And you don't have to have "mountain" size faith, just the faith the size of a grain of mustard seed. Because your faith is not in your ability to remove the mountain, your faith is in the One who removes the mountain and in His word. You aren't removing it, God's word is taking care of that. Our part is to believe that "God is and that He is the rewarder of those who diligently seek Him." (Hebrews 11:6)
So what are you doing about the mountain you are facing today? Are you trying to make it go away in your own strength? If so, it will never move. You have to speak God's word over it. But when you do, you have to speak it with assurance that God is able to do exceeding abundantly above all we ask or think. You may say, I have been doing that and the mountain is still there. That is not your concern. Your part is to just trust God that He is taking care of it-- His way. He is the mountain mover and He knows exactly what, why, when and how to move it. Just place the mountain in His hand and trust that He is faithful.
Have a great day. Speak to the mountain and place your faith in God's word to remove it.
