Blog fam! I pray all is well. Being an adult is interesting at times. Yes, it’s fun and full of experiences but there are times when challenges arise. We all have different ways of handling challenges when they come. Some of us like to tackle the issue head on and handle it before it gets out of hand. While others play it by ear and react as things happen. Lastly, some of us pretend that nothing is happening. Each type of person and the tactic they use to deal with there issues has its benefit. My question is what happens when you’ve done everything imaginable but the issue is still there?
It started as a minor bump in the road, now it’s a hill and it’s on it’s way to becoming a mountain of an issue. Being the educated adults we are, we begin to strategize. We look at the issue(s) from different angles. We seek the advice of friends and family yet the issue(s) still lingers. Now we stand before this colossal mountain wondering if we will ever get around it. It seems like the more you try to climb it, the higher it gets. The more you try to walk around it, the wider it gets. At this point frustration is beginning to sink in and you just want to stop! So, the lingering question is what do I do when nothing seems to work?
Mark 11:22-24 says, “And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. 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. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”
The first step is having faith in God! Your faith is the key to your deliverance. The next thing you have to do is open your mouth and speak to the mountain. We’ve spoke about the mountain to our family, friends and social media followers but now it’s time to talk directly to the mountain. Mostly importantly, do not doubt what you’re declaring. The mountain may seem tall and wide but your faith will cause it to be cast into the sea! The power is in your mouth! The Bible says you shall have whatever you say. It’s up to us to pray, speak and most importantly believe that the mountain will be cast into the sea. I really want to hammer the point in that the height and width of the mountain does not matter when you believe.
God, we come before you with thanksgiving in our hearts. We thank you for the revelation your word brings us! No longer will we attempt to climb or walk around the obstacles that are placed before us. We will speak to those situations and believe your word. We can do this knowing we shall have what we say! Help us to continue to grow in faith. In Jesus’ name; amen! Be blessed peeps!
