Are You Ready to See God Move Your Mountains?

Power to Move Mountains

Jesus said to them, “…for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.”

                                                                                    —Matthew 17:20

Father God, I release my faith to move all the mountains of disruption, confusion, sickness, lack, strife, adversity, and attacks of the enemy. In the name of Jesus I bind all evil and command you out of my life. Thank you, Father, that no evil shall befall us, neither shall any destruction come near my dwelling. My home is blessed with Your love, joy, and peace. I proclaim with boldness and faith that every mountain of adversity must bow down to the name of Jesus.


            To illustrate how inactive Christians can be in their faith, Dr. James S. MacDonald, senior pastor of Harvest Bible Chapel, spoke at the Southern Baptist Convention’s Pastors Conference in New Orleans, June 18, 2012, and read the following poem.

One night I had a wondrous dream,

One set of footprints there was seen,

The footprints of my precious Lord,

But mine were not along the shore.


But then some stranger prints appeared,

And I asked the Lord, “What have we here?

Those prints are large and round and neat,

But Lord, they are too big for feet.”


“My child,” He said in somber tones,

“For miles I carried you alone.

I challenged you to walk in faith,

But you refused and made Me wait.

“You disobeyed, you would not grow,

The walk of faith, you would not know.

So I got tired, I got fed up,

And there I dropped you on your butt.


“Because in life there comes a time,

When one must fight, and one must climb.

When one must rise and take a stand,

Or leave their buttprints in the sand.”2


            Don’t allow weak faith to keep you as a squatter, tormented by the enemy. Make a valuable decision to exercise your faith and your power in Christ. All it takes is a little bit, the size of a mustard seed—one honest prayer—one honest decision to trust God. Start with something close to your heart, and activate your faith by praying a radical, fervent prayer. It may be for a prodigal son or daughter, breaking a bad habit, a much-needed breakthrough in a relationship, or praying for a lost friend or relative. See God intervene in a supernatural way. Then go on to a larger challenge of your faith.

            What is radical? Praying with tenacity and fervency. Reminding God of His Word. Not wavering but persisting and believing that God is able to perform His Word. Going against your will and resisting doubt and unbelief. Radical faith is also resisting temptation and saying no to sin. It is also staying pure in the midst of an ungodly and promiscuous world.

“For I am the LORD. I speak, and the word which I speak will come to pass…I will say the word and perform it,” says the Lord GOD.

—Ezekiel 12:25 

The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.

—James 5:16 

            Effective means, “real, active, producing results, in force, ready for action.” Your real, honest, sincere prayers produce results and benefits—not pity-party prayers of “Lord, I need this or that,” but prayers that yank out all disobedience from your soul and refuse to bow down in defeat to the enemy or to the gods of this world. Those are radical prayers that get God’s intense attention.
