Move the Mountain!
Last night I couldn't get to sleep so I turned on the TV to a Christian channel. The message was from Mark 11:23 - "Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, be taken up and cast into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it shall be granted him." The mountain analogy is - "an impossible situation that can't be moved." Some may feel McCain winning the election is an impossible situation. Let's claim this verse as we pray for our miracle! Notice the key words in this verse.
Below I have included more than that one scripture, so not to take it out of context. "Jesus answered saying 'Have faith in God. Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, be taken up and cast into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it shall be granted him. Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they shall be granted you. And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your transgressions. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive your transgressions." Mark 11:22-26
Key words here are:
(what he) "says,"
(does not)"doubt," and
I suggest we all meditate on these key words and ask the Lord what He has to say to us through them.
