Every one of us is facing at least one or two mountains in 2017. This mountain could be anything that intimidates you, that leads to anxiety or something that seems impossible to change. I have good news for you! With God on your side, the impossible becomes possible, and Jesus loves moving immovable obstacles on our behalf so that His name can be glorified.
I want to share with you a key to moving the immovable impossibility that is standing before you. I was meditating on how to move a mountain, when I felt the Holy Spirit say to me,
“If you want to move the mountain in front of you, first move the mountain inside of you.”
Doubt, fear, or unbelief looms large like mountains within us. It’s not in every area of our lives, but certain areas like work, financial provision, relationships, or seeing a loved one turn to Christ, that could trigger these fears or doubts and diminish our faith.
The mountain in front of you isn’t the problem; it’s the mountain within that’s the real problem. Jesus says in Matthew 21 if you have faith and “do not doubt”, you can move the mountain in front of you. Doubt represents the mountain within us.
Matthew 21:21-22 (NKJV) 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.”
Jesus says that the lies, the unbelief, or doubts found within us are the actual problem. If you move these mountains within, you will have the necessary faith, to trust in God, to speak to these mountains with authority and to see the real-life obstacles move.
Let’s make it our mission this year to move these inner mountains of doubt and fear!
