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 (Mark 11:23).
As long as you're discussing or musing over the challenges you're facing, instead of eyeballing them and commanding a change, you're not going to get the result Jesus spoke about in the scripture above. Maybe it's a growth on certain part of your body, and you've been complaining about it to everyone around and even receiving sympathy from them; it's time to stop talking about it and talk to it! Say "Growth, die and pass out of my body in Jesus' Name," and begin to rejoice that it's done.
Perhaps you've been having financial difficulties; it's time to speak and cause a change! God gave you a mouth so you can speak and effect the changes you desire in life. Your words rule your life; they're what determine whether you're going to be a success or a failure. What you say is what you get, positive or negative.
Quit complaining to God or to those around you about your predicament; command a change in the Name of Jesus! Talk to whatever seems to be a mountain before you right now. Whether it's in your body, your finances, your home or your business; declare the Word of God in faith and surely there'll be a change. Move that mountain!
Don't speak and start watching to see whether or not the mountain has gone; that's not faith. Faith considers the mountain gone once it has spoken! Jesus said to His disciples after He cursed the fig tree "Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done" (Matthew 21:21). This is the recipe for effecting a change in any situation. To move that mountain, all you need is to declare words of faith.
As I vocalize my faith today, mountains move, valleys are filled and every crooked path is made straight! The Word of faith that changes things is in my heart and in my mouth, sharper than any two-edged sword; therefore the situations and circumstances of life conform with God's destiny for me in the Name of Jesus. Amen.
