Day 66: Moving Mountains (Deuteronomy 3-4, Mark 11:20-33)

“Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes it will come to pass, it will be yours.” -Mark 11:23-23

The words of Jesus about moving mountains are infamous amongst Christians. No, it doesn’t mean that God is a slave to our agenda, but it does mean that the Greatest Power ever is living and active within us.

When we are in the face of something that looks as if it can destroy us, oftentimes, all that we see is the “mountain,” forgetting how much bigger our God is and how His best work is done with impossible.

“And The Lord said to me, ‘Do not fear him, for I have delivered him and all his people and his land into your hand; you shall do to him as you did to Sihon, King of the Amorites, who dwelt at Heshbon.'” -Deuteronomy 3:2

Then, we are in Deuteronomy watching as the Lord delivers His people out of slavery. But, it was a PROCESS. God only brought the Israelites up against battles they were ready to face. Then, He assured them with a reminder of all of the battles where He gave them victory in the past.

As you apply this to whatever “mountain” you are facing, ask yourself: what looks bigger: the mountain or your God who is with you? Sit with God and ask Him to show you the process of how far into victory He has brought you.

Can you see how He has been faithful in your life?

How does that change the way you look at your current situation?
