Mountain Get Out of My Way

Today, I feel the urge to speak a word of encouragement over your life. So, if you’re sick and medicine has failed you, if you’re facing a crisis (financial) in your life, if you’ve done absolutely all you know to do, and you still haven’t gotten the result you seek, don’t despair. God has you covered!

What would you think if I told you that you could live without fear? Would you believe it if I said, “despite what you’re going through right now, you could be perfectly at peace?” Impossible? No!

You see, fear isn’t just a reaction to external circumstances. It’s actually a tool of the devil, designed to let you doubt God’s promises. In fact, fear is Satan’s primary weapon of choice and it’s totally destructive. The devil’s plan is to steal your joy, because he knows that the joy of the Lord is your strength.

If you lose your joy, then you’re more susceptible to the lies and tricks of the devil. He acts in response to fear; but God moves in response to faith, “without faith it is impossible to please God.”

An excellent example of this is found in Matthew 14 when Jesus invited Peter to come to Him on the water. But when Peter saw the boisterous wind, he was afraid and began to sink, then he cried, saying Lord, save me (V. 30).

What enabled Peter to walk on the water? Courage! No, it wasn’t courage; it was his faith in the word of Jesus. But what caused Peter to sink? It wasn’t the boisterous wind about him; it was his fear of it! He looked at his circumstances, gave into the fear, and the result was defeat. If Peter had kept his focus on Jesus, his faith would never have wavered.

So, all the turmoil in the world and crisis you’re faced with cannot defeat you. What can separate you from the love of God? Nothing (Rom. 8:31-39)! Therefore, no temptation (to doubt God’s promises) has taken you except what is common to man. God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted above what you are able, but with the temptation also make the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it (1Cor. 10:13).

Where’s your faith? Faith is developed by meditating on God’s word. Fear increases by meditating on Satan’s lies. Such fearful meditation is called worrying. Don’t do it! God has already determined the plan that He has for you, and no devil in hell can hinder God’s blessing from manifesting in your life.

The word of God is the sword of the spirit. So, if you have sinned, confess your sin, because He is faithful and just to forgive you. Now use the word to fight Satan’s lies every time he comes against you. Hold up your shield of faith and quench all of his fiery darts.

If God saw you to it, He’ll be with you through it! Speak words of faith over your life daily and fear will depart. Though your crisis seem like a mountain, it will move. Say, “mountain, get out of my way!” Remember, “God has not given you a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind” (2Tim. 1:7). Faith says, “Forgetting All I Trust Him” (God). Therefore, let faith work for you; trust God.
