Speak to the Mountain
In this life you will have problems, there is not a person on the planet that will not have challenges and problems to overcome. Our goal in life is not to avoid problems. Unexpected or expected problems and challenges will happen. Our goal is to have the wisdom and knowledge on how to solve and or overcome problems. Many times people spend useless time and effort talking about the problem (s). This can be in the form of complaining, gossiping, speaking fear, anger or doubt; which only compounds the situation. The problem(s) will take on a life of its own and begin to dominate your thoughts, causing negative and destructive behaviors, such as overeating, depression, drug usage.
You may say, "Dot, you do not know the BIG problem I am dealing with, it seems like there is no end or no way out!" "What can I do?" I am glad you asked that question. My answer .. SPEAK TO YOUR MOUNTAIN! Your mountain is any challenge or problem that seems insurmountable. Your words are a powerful force, they can create and they can tear down. The Bible states the power of life and death is in the tongue. The tongue is like a rudder on a ship, it can direct your life to your dreams and life goals. If you say you can, you will, if you say you can't, you will not. This may seem over simplified, but in reality what you say about your problems and what you believe, have more impact than what others say or believe concerning your situation. Say to the Mountain, "Move"! I am not saying that you should avoid seeking others to help solve or overcome your problems, but ultimately you must believe in your ability to overcome victoriously. It's important to know that you can transform a seemingly impossible task or problem by speaking to it. You may say. "I will not be destroyed by this problem, I have the ability to overcome."
Being a woman of faith, I speak to my problem (s) , (Mountains), in this manner. "I Can Do All Things through Christ who strengthen me". When challenged with a health concern. I speak, "I walk in Divine health and wholeness". We are not to deny the fact that the symptoms are there, but deny its right to remain in your body. A favorite verse of mine: "Then Jesus told them, "I tell you the truth, if you have faith and don't doubt, you can do things like this and much more. You can even say to this mountain, 'May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,' and it will happen".
I will summarize with a reminder that we are spirit, soul and body. The soul (mind, will and emotions), if not kept in checked, can cause havoc to the body and weaken our spirits. We must speak to the MOUNTAIN, words of peace, calm, faith and rid our thoughts of doubt, fear and unbelief. It's important first to rid your mind of negative thoughts, take every negative thought captive and cast it out. Thoughts are seeds, which become actions and actions create destiny.
To Your Health and Happiness!
