In the Bible, when David went to take his brothers food, he heard everyone talking about Goliath and how big he was and how no one could defeat him. He heard Goliath shouting at God’s people and talking about how he would defeat them. Everyone around David was talking about the impossibility of defeating Goliath and his army – they were talking ABOUT the mountain that was before them that day. Then David arrived.
David had a different viewpoint, a different perspective. David, little David, looked at the mountain before him, in this case it was called Goliath, and said ‘who does he think he is? He is coming against God? He is coming against Jehovah…are you kidding me? I can take him down with nothing more than the word and power of God.’
David’s brothers saw a mountain that was immovable. David saw an obstacle standing in the way of his destiny.
Everyone thought David was crazy. After all, he had no training; he was a keeper of sheep. He had never been in battle before. They began to mock him. It wasn’t only Goliath mocking him, no, his brothers and everyone else mocked him as well. They reminded him that he was a kid, he was small, he was inexperienced….they laughed at him and his big dreams. However, those words didn’t affect David. He knew his God. He has seen him bring him through battles before.
What did David do? He began to speak to the mountain. He didn’t beg God to take Goliath out. He didn’t fast and pray. He didn’t plead with God…no, he spoke directly to the mountain. He said to the mountain, ‘Goliath, you come against me with a sword and a shield, but I come against you in the name of the God of Israel.’
In other words he was saying ‘you have a sword, I HAVE GOD. You have an army with you but my God is bigger and better and He will deliver you into my hand this day.’
He spoke to the mountain and it moved.
If you are ever going to see the promises of God manifest in your life you are going to have to stop allowing the mountain to tell you what is going to happen. You have to stop allowing the mountain to speak to you and you have to begin to speak to the mountain.
Mark 11:23 says; Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them.
If you are going to see the manifestations of your promise, you will have to speak to the giants that mock your victory, that mock your destiny. Everyone mocked David. And everyone mocked Joseph. They both had large destiny’s, the both knew they had a bright future, yet even their own family’s mocked them constantly, but they didn’t allow that to stop them – they spoke to the giants that mocked them. And those giants fell. They walked in their destiny in fullness.
I don’t know what you are facing today but I do know this; you must speak to the mountain. It may be a mountain of debt; speak to it and command it to be thrown into the sea. Then refuse to doubt in your heart and watch it fall.
It may be sickness, speak to it and command it to go. Don’t beg and plead with God for healing – He told you in His word that He healed you 2,000 years ago – receive it today. Speak to your body and command it to line up with the word of God.
It may be your children, don’t complain about your children, speak to the mountain in their life and command it to move now in Jesus name.
I heard a statement today that reminded me of the power of our words; Bill Johnson said ‘there are many breakthroughs that are ONE decree away from happening.’ This statement resonated in my spirit all morning long. The words that come out of our month are linked to our breakthrough.
Whatever is looming before you – speak to it! Command it to be thrown into the midst of the sea. Move it out of your way and then continue on into your destiny. Don’t talk about the problem, talk to it. Don’t talk about how big the mountain is – move it! Move it with your words, speak to it. Stand in faith, declare victory and embrace the blessing God has for you today.
