(St. Mark 11:23KJV) says “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.”
In this particular scripture the word (whosoever) in the first line represents the Christian. We must understand this to be important, because some would believe this scripture applies to anybody; however, it doesn’t; only the believer should apply. Thus, Jesus said if we speak to the mountain (our trials-tribulations-circumstances, etc) and not doubt; our faith would be strong enough to move the mountain. Does that mean when we speak to the mountain it automatically disappears from our life? No, not necessarily. However, what it does mean is that your faith in God elevates you above the mountains in your life whereby you are able to see that God is greater than any situation you come up against. Hence, because God is greater, the mountains in your life don’t paralyze you and keep you from doing the things you need to do for God, as well as, your daily responsibilities.
Thus, even though the mountain could still be in your life physically, spiritually it has no power over you; and once it has no power over you it won’t be long before God eventually removes it totally, because (Psalms 30:5) says “weeping endures for a night but joy comes in the morning.” However, it all starts with your confession because without confession there is no possession. Therefore, when dealing with your enemy you have the right to remain silent, but remaining silent will destroy you.
God Bless You
