MOUNTAIN MOVING FAITH



Mountain Moving Faith
by Pastor Mark Taylor
“If you shall say unto this mountain, Be removed, and be cast into the sea; it shall be done.  And all things, whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive." (Matthew 21:21-22)
Our prayers are more than wishes, hopes or feeble aspirations - but only if we pray with believing, faith filled hearts. That is the kind of prayer that moves mountains.
Jesus, of course, was not in the excavation business. He had little interest in relocating piles of rocks in the ocean’s depths. He was using the term mountain figuratively. Whatever mountain stands in you path, whatever obstacle blocks your way, whatever difficulty immobilizes you, the prayer of faith can remove it. This was what He was telling His disciples and is telling us today.

Mountain moving faith comes from looking at God, not looking at the mountain.  Whatever roadblock you are facing Jesus says today speak to that mountain and tell it to be gone in the name of Christ, and believe. 

Mountain moving faith only comes as we “walk” with Him.

God always answers prayer: Yet . . .

If the request is wrong, God says, “No”.
If the timing is wrong, God says, “Slow”.
If you are wrong, God says, “Grow”.
But if the request is right, the timing is right and you are right, God says, “Go!”.

For most of us the mountain is so huge, and our faith is so weak that all we can say in reply is what a father of a sick child said to Jesus.  Jesus told Him "… If thou can believe, all things are possible to him that believes.”  The father responded to Jesus
 “The father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help mine unbelief." (Mark 9:23-24).

The reason most people don’t pray is that they don’t expect God to answer their prayers in the first place. They kneel down, and talk to themselves for a while, not expecting God to speak back because they have never heard Him do it before. They get tired of hearing their own voice, wondering If God is even listening, then get up and go back to doing the same things again. The only thing they really accomplished was to ease their conscience for a while, but they haven’t touched God through faith.

You are God’s child and He wants to give you the answer to your prayer, so pray and believe that the answer is already yours right now!  God wants you to be well. God wants you to be free. God wants you to be delivered. God wants to give you the best that Heaven has to offer. He is just waiting on you to ask, in faith, without wavering.

In the Old Testament a man named Jabez prayed a prayer that changed his life and those around him.  Jabez’s prayer was simple…  “’Oh that You would bless me indeed and enlarge my border, and that Your hand might be with me, and that You would keep me from harm that it may cause me pain.”  And God granted him what he requested.” (I Chronicles 4:10).

After you pray, believe.  Forget about the past. Don’t think about all the bad things that has happened to you.   Think about God’s future for you.

“Do not call to mind the former things, or ponder things of the past. Behold, I will do something new, now it will spring forth; will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert.” (Isaiah 43:18-19).  I believe that God can fulfill this verse in you and I. He wants to make a roadway in our wilderness and rivers in our desert. I believe God for this, will you?

When you speak the mountain may not move immediately, but it does not mean things are not happening.  When Jesus spoke to the fig tree it did not died immediately, but the work was beginning at the roots and all life was removed from that tree. and when they returned the next day, the fig tree had dried up and was dead.  When you speak to your problems, believe that God is already starting to work on your mountain and it will soon be cast into the sea.
Declare that you are blessed. Tell yourself that every negative word that have been said to you, and about you, will not have any effect on you.   Expect good things and speak words of victory and not of defeat and you will see your mountains removed
According to the Bible, believers can be confident that their prayers will be answered. And many times Jesus will let us know that it was faith and belief that is the key to answered prayer. 

“Jesus said, "If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes." (Mark 9:23)   “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” Luke 11:9)  "If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.” (John 14:14).

God can do supernaturally for you what others cannot do.  Begin today to speak to your problems instead of speaking about your problems. Ask God for “Mountain Moving Faith” today, and you will see your problems taken away from you.
