“Stop talking to God about how big your mountains are and start talking to your mountains about how big your God is.” Jesus encouraged us to speak to our mountains in Mark 11:22-24. Jesus answered and said to them, 22 …”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. 24. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you have receive them, and you will have them.”
Jesus isn’t advocating that we can move a literal mountain. Jesus was using a hyperbole to challenge his followers to a new level of spiritual faith. Mountains can represent obstacles that impede our spiritual progress or the difficulties of life. Do you have some mountains in your life that need to hear about how big your God is? Maybe you’re facing a mountain of debt, discouragement, self-defeat or disappointment. Perhaps it is a mountain in a loved one’s life that weighs heavy upon your heart. Sometimes those mountains in our way can speak at us; even mock us. There is a man in the Old Testament whose name is Zerubbabel. A mountain in his life apparently was taunting him, but Zerubbabel refused to take it lying down. He retaliated with this bold declaration, “Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain! And he shall bring forth the capstone with shouts of “Grace, grace to it!” (Zechariah 4:7).Now, that’s what I’m talking about!
Just a thought,
