And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. 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. 24) Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. Mark 11:22-24 KJV
These scriptures have changed my life. When you understand you have the power to speak to your problem you will see results. The mountain in this passage is referring to a problem in your life. It can be sickness, an ailment, pain, financial problems and whatever else comes your way. The main thing to remember is to have faith in God. This passage is so powerful because when you believe God’s word and act on it you will see his promises manifest in your life. I will share a brief testimony of how I applied this in my life and it blessed me.
Speaking to the Mountain
When I was a young kid I used to ride on a skateboard with my friends. Later on as a teenager a friend had a skateboard and I decided to ride on it like old times. But unlike my childhood years I was not as successful. Somehow I hit the top part of my foot with the board and caused the bone to stick up a little. The mishap hurt but I could walk on it so I did not need to go to the doctor.
Many years later as an adult I loved wearing sandals and other pretty shoes. There was one particular slip on sandal that bothered me after walking all day with them. The strap lay across the top part of my left foot. It was exactly the area I hit many years ago as a teenager.
After learning I had authority over my problems and could speak to the problem I realized this pain I was feeling in my foot did not belong to me. If Jesus healed me 2000 years ago this pain has to go. Right then and there I believe the Holy Spirit quickened the word to me in Mark 11 and reminded me to speak to the problem. I took my sandals off and laid my hand on the area that was hurting me and commanded the bone to go back in place in the name of Jesus. And that was it! I went about my business and I did not think about it anymore.
Weeks or months later I was wearing those same sandals again. I wore them all day and when I came home I realized my foot was not hurting like it did in the past. The bone that used to protrude on my foot was no longer sticking out. It had gone back into place. I began to praise the Lord and thank him. This was truly a blessing to me to see a positive result when I acted on the word. Since that day my foot did not bother me anymore.
Remember you have the same power that raised Jesus from the dead. He could heal, cast out demons and raise the dead. Your only requirement is to believe his word. He will do the rest. He will do the rest. Speak to your mountain today and let his word have result in your life! God bless you!
