Speak to the Mountain

BY REV. DORAL PULLEY | Today’s Church Tampa Bay

Read – Mark 11:12-25

Scripture: “Truly, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their hearts but believe that what they say will happen, it will be done for them (Mark 11:23).”

Denial: “I release fear. And let go of doubt.”

Affirmation: “My mouth makes miracles.”

Jesus is our Wayshower, our example of what it means to be fully human and fully divine. When we follow his example, we know who we are as spiritual beings. When we walk in his footsteps, we exercise our dominion over nature and take care of the earth (Genesis 2:15). Looking to Jesus as our older brother empowers us to operate in the specific earthly domain to which we are called.

Jesus used the disciples’ astonishment at his ability to reign in nature as a teaching moment. He confirmed that they also had the power to speak to nature. He used the mountain as an example of their authority. He assured them that they had the power to speak to the mountain and cast it into the sea. The only thing stopping them from manifesting that kind of miracle was themselves.

As modern-day disciples of Jesus, our words have power, and the only limit to that power is our own fear, doubts, and worry. Each of us has an account with the universe. Each time we mean what we say and say what we mean, we make a deposit into that account. Each time we use our words loosely, we make a withdrawal from that account.

Whenever we are accountable for the things that we have said and done, we get a credit to that account. Whenever we do not take responsibility for our words, our account is debited. When we attempt to speak things into existence, and it bounces back, we need to check our account balance. Manifesting miracles, signs, and wonders is the result of building our account with the universe and keeping it in the green.

Reflection Question: What is the current status of your account with the universe?
