Faith to Move a Mountain

moving-mountainsYesterday during our family gathering at church, we had what I like to call a God-moment.  We had begun the service with singing some songs and then, during an unplanned spontaneous moment, we got out of the way and let the Holy Spirit lead the service.  As the worship pastor, I got a front-row seat to experience God’s beautiful moving in His people.

We had finished up a song and I just felt the Spirit’s leading to not rush into the next song.  I began to sing some spontaneous lyrics to the music, “We make room for you to move, Jesus” followed by some words about God’s Glory and Power.  Corporately, we focused our hearts on God and were no longer singing familiar words but moving into uncharted territory.

We soaked in the presence of the Lord and allowed some light instrumental music to play softly.  God then used a young lady to boldly speak that we had mountains in our lives that He would move.  She said that God wanted us to SPEAK to our mountains in His name.  (There was definitely more to it than that, but, I can’t recall the specifics.)  We, each, acknowledged God’s power and spoke out loud to our mountains.  It seemed like our faith-level rose to the occasion.  In our hearts, we believed God above all and trusted Him with the mountains.

We weren’t done yet though.  The Holy Spirit urged us to praise God, just like Miriam did after the Israelites crossed the Red Sea by God’s miraculous power.  It was like God said, “I got this.  It is finished.”  So, with spiritual eyes and believing hearts, we praised God and declared our freedom from the mountains!  Truly, it was a God-moment and we were excited to praise and worship the greatness, goodness, and faithfulness of our God!

Jesus speaking in Matthew 17:20,

“…Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”


What God did for us supernaturally, He will do for you.  Believe Him and trust Him to take care of your mountain.  Then, praise God that He has taken care of it!
