It’s very hard to keep believing God for a specific answer or healing when a loved one has just lost the same battle we’re fighting. We become weak and discouraged, and so it’s crucial that we learn how to stand in faith when our hearts are crushed.
We need to keep our eyes focused on God at all times and never let our eyes waiver from Him.
God’s Words are powerful and they are real and they bring victory over our circumstances.
Jesus said that if we have a little faith, even the size of a mustard seed that we could speak to the mountains and they would move. Was He talking about a physical landscape? No.
Jesus was talking about the doubt that arises when resistant, overpowering circumstances and situations come about and stand in our way of getting victory over our own situation. He was telling us to keep our eyes on Him, to keep our faith in Him so that when these overwhelming obstacles cross our path, we will see them as just that, obstacles – not impossibilities, but obstacles
that we can get over when we don’t let go of our faith.
The mountain that Jesus talks about is the doubt that challenges our faith when these circumstances arise. Doubt wants us to believe that what we’re trusting God for is the size of a mountain, an impossible hurdle that we will never get the victory over. And doubt uses the circumstances around us to try and convince us that standing in faith is a useless task, and that we are going to lose the battle that we are fighting in faith because the evidence around us shows that we can’t win. Doubt likes to boldly show us loved ones who lost their battle and then try and convince that we’ll lose ours, as well.
Speak to the mountain! Speak to the doubt!
Speak out loud and say, “God is greater than any problem I have. He is my creator. He is my father. He loves me and He told me to have faith and speak to you, mountain of doubt, and you WILL MOVE! Jesus already gave me the victory, and you, doubt, are in my way so move.”
When our hearts are crushed by circumstances around us, this is when we really need to focus on God’s Words and strengthen our faith before doubt – the mountain – sets in. It’s amazing how strong we become when we speak out against the mountain as Jesus told us to. We need to stand in faith when our hearts are crushed and not let the circumstances around us create doubt. We need to stand in faith and tell the mountain to move!
“Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move and nothing will be impossible for you.” ….Matthew 17:20
