As I was worshiping recently, I saw this picture: I saw a woman standing at the top of a mountain. As she stood there alone, I sensed fear as she looked at the climb down and the valley below her. Suddenly Jesus appeared in the picture. I saw Jesus whisper in her right ear. I felt as though Jesus was telling her what to speak as she looked ahead. As she spoke, it sounded like thunder, which made the mountain underneath her begin to crumble. The dirt, stone, the earth below the mountain was gone leaving a narrow ledge to stand on. It reminded me of the picture in Lion King where Rafiki held Simba in the air to present him to the other animals. As she stood there, it was as if Jesus was presenting the opportunity to cross over into her destiny, but it would take courage on her part.
Web definition of Courage:
the ability to do something that frightens one, strength in the face of pain or grief.”
When there seemed to be no way to get to the other side, suddenly, all the dirt, stone, everything that had crumbled under the mountain miraculously came together to create a bridge to the other side. I knew the woman represented me, but I was not the first person standing on the mountain. I saw one person after another walking over the bridge before me.
Your Mountain is the Bridge to Your Destiny
Your mountain is the bridge to your destiny. Jesus wants you to speak to the mountain so it will be removed — but it takes courage! I believe Jesus wants to stand at your side and speak words of wisdom, directions for the crossing and excitement for your future. He is just waiting for you to step out. Speak to your mountain!
For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Mark 11:23 NKJV
Jesus Himself was tempted by Satan. Each time Jesus spoke the Word, Satan moved out of his way. In Luke 4:1-13, Jesus shows us by example, how to speak to the mountains of life. Jesus never denies the mountain before you, He simply communicates there is a way to cross over.
Speak to your mountain so it will be removed! It is in the place where your mountain lays waste that Suddenly your bridge to cross over is made visible.
Speak to your mountain!
