The Mountain Before You

So Jesus answered and said to them,"Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, Be removed and be cast into the sea, it will be done."

To Jesus the size of the obstacle did not matter, it was the pureness of faith.

As I read this scripture, I decided to look up the meaning of the word mountain. Everyone knows the meaning of "mountain", but I thought I would check and discover something new.

Here's what I found; as lifting itself above the plain.

I don't know what the definition speaks to you, but to me it defines those obstacles in life that "lift themselves above the truth I walk in".

Is. 55:9

For as the heavens are higher than the earth,

So are My ways higher than your ways,

And My thoughts than your thoughts.

1 Corinthians 2:16

For "who has known the mind of the LORD that he may instruct Him?" But we have the mind of Christ.

Amplified Version puts the last sentence this way, "But we have the mind of Christ (the Messiah) and do hold the thoughts (feelings and purposes) of His heart.

Eph. 2:6 (amp)

And He raised us up together with Him and made us sit down together (giving us joint seating with Him) in the heavenly sphere (by virtue of our being) in Christ Jesus.

When I remain on the same plain as the obstacle before me, I am not the spiritual giant that I hoped I would be. I feel weak, defeated, worried, and unsure. But when I take that mustard seed of faith, the one truth that is pure and I focus on Jesus, my thoughts become His thoughts. My ways become His ways, and my perspective is a Heavenly perspective. I see the obstacle in front of me as gone. I can see myself on the other side, and He can begin to guide me through.

Declarations to change the way we think:

I have the mind of Christ.

I hold the thoughts of His heart in my Heart.

He is for me, not against me.

His ways and thoughts are higher than mine, so I choose today to be seated with Him in Heavenly places.

His thoughts for me contain purpose and hope.

The mountain before me is cast into the sea.
