This Mountain

So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God.  23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Mark 11:22-23 NJKV

The God kind of faith is strong belief to be able to accomplish things that appear most difficult by speaking words of faith. Jesus referred to those most difficult things as “this mountain.” This mountain literally was the Mount of Olives (Mark 11:1), but for those who believe, figuratively, this mountain could be any challenge, a masive problem, or some difficulty that appears impossible.

So, how does the “God kind of faith” work? Jesus was clear in with what explained to His disciples. He told them, “If anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him” (Mark 11:23 NIV). Say it; don’t doubt it; believe and receive it. Faith is always expressed in words, and faith must be released by the words in your mouth.

Both Moses and the Apostle Paul taught that when you are faced with “this mountain”, the answer would always be within your reach through the words that you speak. The answer would not be up in heaven or beyond the sea, but “the word of faith is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart” (Deut. 30:14; Rom. 10:8-10). For example, with words of faith you confess salvation, healing and deliverance, etc. And, when you confess any aspect of salvation, you are confirming a heart-felt conviction of truth. Thus, the same is true when speaking to “this mountain.”

You must understand the power of words—words have immeasurable power! There are at least three things that words do to you and for you (Prov. 6:2)—(1) Words locate you; (2) Words fix the landmarks of your life; and, (3) Words affect your spirit (negatively or positively). So make a decision to speak to “this mountain” and “hold fast to your confession” (Heb. 4:14). Say to “this mountain” the same thing that God has said and promised in His Word (Heb. 3:1). Speak and don’t be moved by time. Just fight the good fight of faith (1 Tim. 6:12).

Speak to “this mountain.” Say it; don’t doubt it; believe and receive it. You will never realize beyond that which you say, and you will never have beyond your words.
