Weekend Wisdom: Moving Mountains

Welcome to the weekend! Hope your Saturday is filled with lots of wonderful memories.

“Say to this mountain, Move from here to there, and it will move.”

Matthew 17:20

The following are verses mentioned in the Day 14 devotion Speak to the Mountain in Mark Batterson’s Draw the Circle, The 40 Prayer Challenge

Speak these words to the mountains in your life – Covid-19, the election, state government, mask mandates, etc… Talk to them about the power, majesty and glory of our mountain-moving God.

  • If God is for us, who can be against us? – Romans 8:31
  • For he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world – 1 John 4:4
  • I can do all things through him who strengthens me. – Philippians 4:13
  • All things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose – Romans 8:28

By speaking these verses and other verses to the mountains in your life, you are putting God in between you and your mountain. That move is called playing offense and We The People don’t play offense enough. God will fight our battles for us if we just ask. Now His battle plan WILL be different than ours and WILL be implemented in His time because He knows best.

We The People need to pray and have faith and trust in God’s plan.

Quit talking to God about your problem and start talking to your problem about God.
