If anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. Mark 11:23, NIV
Almost alone this passage can revolutionize your life and change defeat into victory.
What does it tell you? That your “mountain,” that great rock-like obstruction, that tremendous barrier, can be broken down and ousted from your life. You must not doubt “in your heart.” Allow no negative thoughts to exist in your subconscious mind.
Pray that your mountainous difficulty shall be removed and, as you pray, believe that it is being done then and now. Don’t have the hazy idea that “this mountain” may be removed sometime in the future, but believe that God is removing it for you now.
~ ~ Norman Vincent Peale
Whatever the mountain, i.e.: trouble, circumstance, situation, bondage, or personal soul blocker, it can be gone. We must believe it so, not that we have some mystical power but through our unwavering belief that God will do it. He already has. Just wait and as our faith and belief grow so will the removal of our mountains.
Reflect: How is your faith during times of waiting for your mountain to move?
