Yes…God does move mountains. Keep living and you will see. There will be times when the obstacles are just too great. Yes…we have the authority through Jesus Christ to stand flat foot, look that thing in the eye and declare and decree that it move, in Jesus name.
That’s how much power there is in the name of Jesus. And because we are heirs, daughters of the King, we have authority to use it. That’s powerful. I used to watch a friend in high school use her father’s credit card often. I used to think “wow how cool!!” Same concept. Only with this, the dad has WAY more power.
But guess what? Sometimes, we make mountains out of molehills. A molehill is a small mound of earth thrown up by a mole burrowing near the surface. A mole is an animal…or a spy. For this blog, we will use the term spy.
We make problems seem so much greater than they really are. Molehills. Spurred on by moles. Spies, sent by the enemy, to throw us off course. When we are on our way to greatness in Jesus, a bright future, new revelations of God, healing our families, walking in purpose….here comes that nasty mole, making small things look so much bigger and scarier.
Sometimes, we forget that we have strength, as well as power, in Jesus name. He strengthens us for some things. We end up yelling at a pile of dirt “IN JESUS NAME I COMMAND YOU TO MOVE!” When in actuality, we have the strength to step right on over it. But when that itty bitty pile of dirt doesn’t move, we respond with tears and defeat and a sense of give-up-ed-ness (It’s a word…look it up). “Maybe it’s just not meant to be….God doesn’t want me to have what’s on the other side of that mountain….He must have better”. Pretty sure these are some of the times we make the Father face palm.
Here is where discernment would help. Some things are mountains, some are piles of dirt. Recognize which is which and attack it accordingly.
Recently, in my prayer time, I was thanking God for the x, the y and z that He had done in my life. “But God…this (I pointed with authority, conviction, hurt, pain and disbelief that this was still bothering me) is my mountain. Move it for me please. Because I have prayed over this thing for a while and it still bothers me!” I had tears in my eyes. I felt a little resentment that He was even still letting this be an issue for me.
A couple days later, He gently dropped in my spirit “You are more of a mountain than that. Get over it.” Not get over it, in the “too much time has passed” heartless “let it go” sense. But in the literal “you can step over this. Get over it”. And with some prayer, and a little holding of my breath, a little eye squeeze and I stepped right over it. I looked back at it, and thought….”Oh….that was tiny! That was nothin!”
I am now standing on top of the molehill I thought had defeated me. Leaping over it, shimmying as I walk away!
What are you waiting on God for, in your life? Do you feel like your on the cusp of it? It may just be on the other side of that mountain….or that pile of dirt. If it’s a mountain, call on Jesus. But if God already called you to conquer it, then, sis, put on some cute heels, get your make up done, wear your best hair, spanx it up if need be (I am currently still in 2, but that’s a whole ‘nother blog) and step over that thing, and into your destiny!!
