Mark 11:23 says, 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.
One of the hardest things for a person to do is to try and figure out how to remove that mountain. It appears the longer we stare at it; it becomes bigger doesn’t it? We’re thinking about what if we went around that mountain. Could that mountain be chiseled down? We think of everything that we can think of, only to discover that it’s hopeless.
The Lord tells us that we must speak the word and have faith for that mountain will be cast down? So why does it take us to long to figure it out? We spend most of our energy yelling at that mountain. We may even cry over this mountain. We may get mad at God for we want God to move that mountain out of our way.
Regardless of what we might do in front of that mountain we need to remember that God is wanting us to exercise our faith. One can say all day long that they have faith, but until you use it you don’t have faith. Faith is an action.
When you’re out sightseeing mountains are beautiful but when it comes to the mountains in our lives, they aren’t so lovely. God always has a lesson for us to learn even with the mountains in our lives.
Have a blessed Tuesday!!!
