“I will help you says the Lord, your Redeemer. See I will make you a new sharp threshing instrument with double edges; you shall thresh mountains, and beat them small and the wind shall carry them away. You shall rejoice in the Lord and glory in Him.” Isa. 41:15-16
What do you think are these mountains that God wants to help us beat them small? High places that seem immovable.
You may think your mountains are your problems, but God sees your mountains are your assignment.
Your mountains are challenges that look impossible to overcome. It may be a mountain of financial burdens. Mountain of health issues, mountain of broken family relationships.
Name your mountains!
Mountains to cut down with God’s Word in your mouth.
Mountain of health burdens.
Mountain of family burdens.
Mountain of financial burdens.
Mountain of ?
Tell me according to this scripture what God wants to be to us > Helper and Redeemer.
How will He do this? Note: He is not taking away the problem or assignment. He is helping us face it with His Word coming out of our mouth. It is like God setting us up in situations that look like there is no way to succeed – no way to prosper. Then He takes pleasure in putting this weapon of double edges to take down mountains?
What is this sharp instrument with double edges that will take down my mountains that seem impossible? The personal words God gives me to hide in my heart but then speak is like a sword coming out of my mouth.
You should be collecting Words that get yoru attention about your challenges. Keep a note book and use them in times of prayer.
Mountain of health problems:
I Peter 2:24 I am healed. Psalm 103:3, redeemed from curse Gal. 3:13 .
Mountain of financial burdens – Phil 4:19, 2Cor. 9:6. Mal. 3:10 God rebukes the devourer for me.
Mountain of family burdens – Isa. 54:13, Psalm 127:3
Father, Your Word says my children shall be taught of the Lord and great will be their peace (Isa. 54:13.) You said that children are the heritage of the Lord and the fruit of the womb is a reward (Psa 127:3). You said blessed would be the fruit of my body (Deut. 28:4). In Proverbs 11:21 that the seed of the righteous would be delivered. Your Spirit is operating in the life of -------- because I am praying for them. I come against the evil spirit that is operating in their life and bind that power in Jesus name. I call them into their destiny You have for them. No weapon formed against them shall prosper. Holy Spirit I call for You to draw them to Yourself and cross their path with Spirit filled believers who will help them get on your path for their life. I thank You for this victory in Jesus’ name.
The end result will be this.
“You shall rejoice in the Lord and glory in Him.” Isa. 41:16
“that people may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the Lord has done this, and the Holy One of Israel has created it.” Isa. 41:20
1. First He is helping us find the right Word from His Word for our situation. This is on-going but we must be paying attention to what is traveling through your mind.
But what does the Word say, “The Word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart.” Romans 10:8
This is a quote from Deut. 30:11-14.
Paraphrase: This Word from God is not hidden from you , nor is is far off. It is not high up in heaven so that you should say who will go up to heaven and get us the word so we can hear it and do it? It is not across the sea so that we should say who will go and bring it to us? It is near you , in your mouth and in your heart, so that you may do it.
Faith is a gift God placed in your heart when born again.
Every man has been given a measure of faith - Romans 12:3
God places hope in your heart so you can have joy and peace while you are believing for your mountain to move. – Romans 15:13
Your born again spirit believes the Word – it jumps to life when it hears it.
Your soul is the battleground – mind – where Satan tries to talk you out of trusting God. “It’s not going to work, nothing changes.”
One of the ways you know you are listening to Satan’s broadcast to your mind is you begin to worry. Worry is meditation on his words.
Your mind is tuned to listen to a broadcast.
FM channel = failure mode
AM channel = abiding mode
Another way you can tell where your soul is tuned is by listening to your own words coming from your mouth.
2. HS will coach us to step up and speak to the mountain the Word He gave us.
Why speak out words to our mountains? Because they are speaking to you. When you start to speak out loud what the Word says about it, then your mountains don’t look so formidable. You are going to your war room – great movie.
Every time you speak the Word to it – you are cutting down it’s size.
One day it will be so tiny that the wind will blow it away like chaff.
“The power of life and death are in the tongue, and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”
God could take down our mountains without us but He choose to partner with us – for us to be yoked with Him to learn.
“All the promises of God are yes and amen in Him, to the glory of God THROUGH US.” 2 Cor. 1:20
Our lives including our mountains are to glorify God. that people may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the Lord has done this, and the Holy One of Israel has created it.” Isa. 41:20
