The online Merriam Webster Dictionary definition of a mountain is: "A landmass that projects conspicuously above its surroundings and is higher than a hill.".
If you do a study of geology you will find that mountains are constantly changing, yet these changes often go unnoticed by the naked eye, but nevertheless they are changing. And one of the elements that erodes or causes change to a mountain is the power of water, such as a river or a flood. And this makes me think about the mountains in our lives, especially the stubborn ones.
Spiritually speaking, we say the stubborn sickness is "the mountain," but what would be the eroding power to bring this mountain down? Faith. Faith activated in the right way with the Word of God will cause this sickness or disease to erode, to lose its strength and cause it to crumble, and to wash it away.
Ephesians 5:26 refers to the cleansing power of the Word of God, like water: "that he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word."
As we continue to activate the following on a continual basis, like a flowing river, we will see that stubborn mountain come down in our lives.
- Activate Faith.
- When we pray, pray in faith, believing in the promises of God, and in the God Who promised.
- Add the Scriptures of faith and healing to our prayers.
- Declare healing as if it were already completed, this is faith-talk. This is the way God speaks.
- Pray in tongues to edify, to build ourselves up in the faith.
- Find ways to put our faith into action.
A reader writes"
Becky, I have been dealing with physical challenges for the past 10 or so years. I have tried to stay in the word throughout all the attacks. When one symptom lessens, another comes. I have been to numerous doctors and been issued a multitude of conditions. I have renounced them. On days, like today, when pain attacks it is harder to fight. I listen to healing CDs and Scriptures. I am not sure how to proceed. This last attack of condition has been going on for almost a year now. I do not give voice to the symptoms. I have been prayed for on several occasions. Any words of advice would be deeply appreciated. Thank you."
I first respond with a prayer of faith. "In the name of Jesus, I renounce a familiar spirit, a spirit of infirmity and a spirit of death (premature death) that have latched onto you. I curse this curse of this sickness over you. You have been delivered from this curse because Jesus Himself became the curse for you so you can be free from it in His mighty name.
"I release the healing power of Holy Spirit to flow in and throughout your entire being. I command your spine and nervous system to be realigned, healed, recreated if need be. I speak to your immune system to be healed and made whole and to heal your body, not drop its defenses or attack itself either. I speak into your cellular realm, and I speak re-creation of every cell from their very center to the outside of them. I speak to your blood to be washed and made whole; in fact, I speak to your entire body to be cleansed by the redemptive blood of Jesus.
"I renounce the spirit of fear that has risen against you in this battle. I renounce the lies of the enemy that the blood of Jesus is inferior to this situation, because the Word tells us that every knee shall bow, and every tongue will confess that Jesus is Lord, including demonic forces and negative medical results.
"I decree a separation between you and these evil spirits and the sickness and disease that they carry and deposit into people. No more will we tolerate such an attack. I once read, 'The devil trembles when he sees the weakest child upon his knees.' Sister, continue to pray in the Holy Spirit: tongues. Don't give up. And find whatever way you can to act healed in Jesus' name too, because faith always demands action."
This woman writes, "I have stopped using my cane, and I do not take any pain medications."
I respond to her message, "This is a wonderful step of faith!"
I then ask her, "What is it that you are fighting against? Please just give a short response."
She responds with, "Osetitis pubis, pelvic and groin pain, and right-side facial pain."
I then reply to her, "OK, lay your hand on those areas. And right now, I speak to the nerves and to the nervous system to be recreated in Jesus' name. Also, the vertebrae and the discs to be recreated and realigned and move properly. The discs have the right amount of liquid in them. The vertebra are smooth, no bone spurs or abnormalities of any kind. I declare that none of these body parts are worn down, but re-created in the name of Jesus', amen."
Now, she might have to fight against this mountain, but if she will choose to continually speak faith and healing to this stubborn mountainous disease in her body, she will see it begin to crumble and eventually fall down completely for the glory of God.
