Text: Mark 11:23
“For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.”
WHAT IS A MOUNTAIN?
One dictionary definition says that a mountain is
a natural elevation of the earth’s surface rising more or less abruptly to a summit, and attaining an altitude greater than that of a hill, usually greater than 2,000 feet (610 meters).
We are looking at a mountain this morning in the context of our message as those stubborn situations that confronts us as children of the most high God which we have prayed or are praying about but seem to refuse to leave us; examples of which are: protracted illness, terminal illness, Barrenness, stagnation, loneliness, oppression, depression, household enemies, any form of negativity etc . Some of these mountains are physical while some are spiritual. I pray that we all receive the grace to overcome every mountain in our lives in Jesus’ name.
Our Bible text made us to understand that provided you can open your mouth to address anything that represents mountain in your life, you can relocate the mountain at your command.
All you need is simple faith. As little as mustard seed kind of faith. It means, it is not a big deal to relocate mountains out of your way, just like God parted the Red Sea for Israel to cross. He instructed Moses on what to do which he obeyed. However, It was the faith of Moses that moved that mountain.
Also Joshua was giving out instruction to Israel as directed by God on what to do for the wall of Jericho to fall. They followed the instructions by faith and the wall of Jericho fell.
The anointing to relocate your mountain is upon your life, it is left for you to use or not.
The Bible says that God has given us anointed mouth to address our situations according to Luke 21:15 “For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.”
You are a spirit being living in a body. It is spirit that can address spirits.
As the saying goes “what you say is what you get.” Use your mouth to reject what you don’t want in your life. God has given us His words in the scriptures to speak in any situation to confront the enemy just as our Lord Jesus Christ used the word of God “it is written “ to defeat the devil in Luke 4: 1-13.
Brethren, the words of God in your mouth are powerful in the realm of the spirit because your Father has ordained it to be so. He says in James 4:7b “you shall resist the devil and He will flee.” As a child of God, when confronted with spiritual mountains the first thing you ought to do is bind every spirit behind that mountain and subject them to your authority in Christ. You must take charge/ authority over the mountain. Move anything that stands as mountain against your life and destiny. Whether they are challenges that appear as Herod, Pharaoh or Goliath, bind and remove the spirit that controls them and they shall disappear before you in Jesus’ name.
However, some mountains are stubborn that they will not just move easily. As the Lord Jesus Christ said in Mark 9:29 when the people brought a child with a deaf and dumb spirit to His disciples for healing and they could not heal him, He said “this kind cannot be cast out except by prayer and fasting.”
Fasting is another weapon apart from issuing command through the word of God against a mountain for it to move. Our lord Jesus Christ fasted often during his ministry on the earth. And we can testify to the miracles he performed as a result of this. We may need to engage in the exercise of fasting if we want stubborn mountains to leave our lives alone.
Praise is another weapon to use to move mountains and this is one of the fastest weapon if you ask me. Paul and Silas in Acts 16:25 engaged this weapon and the prison door open unto them of his own accord, of course backed up with their faith.
May the Lord honour our faith in Jesus name
The name of Jesus however is the greatest weapon to be used to move mountains. If you have faith, if you engage in fasting and quote the scriptures without using the name of Jesus Mountains will not move. Command those mountains by faith (sickness, barrenness, loneliness, poverty etc.) to disappear today in the name of Jesus and they will obey.
No mountain can resist the power of Jesus’ name. His name is highly exalted above all other names and at the mention of that name every knee bows. Philippians 2: 9-10. Use that name today to relocate your mountain by fire.
I pray that everything you have commanded to leave you shall leave you forever and everything you have commanded to come in Jesus’ name shall come.
Whether on the mountain, in the valley or on the land, where ever we find ourselves and whatever life throws at us may the Lord always be there to fight for us and may we receive mountain moving faith today in Jesus’ mighty name.
Let’s always thank God for His mountain moving ability in our lives.
He has given us the power to move mountains, if not He won’t ask us to do what He knows we can’t do. Hallelujah!
As I was rounding up this message a song came to my heart in Yoruba and it goes thus:
Gbogbo ogun ni ko bami sę
Gbogbo ogun ni ko bami sę o,
Mama sę kan ku
Gbogbo ogun ni ko bami sę.
Mama sę kan ku
Gbogbo ogun ni ko bami sę.
Fight all my battles for me
Don’t leave any behind.
May this day birth great testimonies of mountains removed from our lives and our nation in Jesus’ name. Amen
Let us pray:
*Father I thank you for this day and for who you are in my life.
*Father I thank you for your mercies and your grace that brought me and my loved ones thus far.
*Father I thank you for the mountain moving ability/ weapons you have given me. (The name of Jesus, fasting & prayers, the power of praise and scriptures)
Father, you are the mighty man in battle, by your power I relocate every mountain that is blocking the way of my testimonies in Jesus name.
*Father, as this year is running to an end, please don’t allow any mountain to remain in my life, give me and my loved ones all round victory in Jesus name.
*Father, please have mercy on Nigeria and let every evil mountain confronting us now be relocated and cast into the sea in Jesus name.
*Father, please walk through this nation and let your righteousness reign in Jesus name. Proverbs 14:34
*Father, please ordain peace for our nation. From North to South, from East to West please let you peace reign. Isaiah 26:12
