And Jesus answered them, Truly I say to you, if you have faith (a firm relying trust) and do not doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, Be taken up and cast into the sea, it will be done. (Matthew 21:21, AMP)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Weve all had seasons when the challenges of life feel overwhelming. During those times, its easy to be tempted to talk about how bad things are. Maybe you received a bad medical report, or maybe youre facing a financial obstacle. The more you talk about something, the bigger it becomes in your mind. Instead, youve got to dig your heels in and say, No, I am not going to give life to that defeat. I am not going to speak sickness over myself. Im not going to speak lack. Im not going to speak fear. Im choosing a different report. I believe the report of the Lord which says, I can do all things through Christ. I can defeat this sickness. I can break this addiction. I can have peace in my home. I can see restoration in my relationships.
Remember, even if you dont see how things could ever work out, God does. Youve got to speak His Word over those mountains in your life and declare favor over those situations. Instead of talking to God about how big your problems are, talk to your problems about how big your God is! As you speak to your mountains, they will be moved, and you will walk forward into the victory God has prepared for you!
A Prayer for Today
Father, I declare that I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. I speak to the mountains in my life and say, Be moved! I declare blessings, favor and victory over my future in Jesus name. Amen!
