There is etiquette in different cultures around the world when it comes to when and who can talk. The elderly in some cultures are respected and the younger yield to them by listening instead of talking.
There is no cultural etiquette when it comes to talking to the mountains in our lives. Jesus said, “whoever says” to a mountain will be heard.
Mark 11:23 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.
Whoever means every believer; there are no limitations to whoever. Here are some thoughts about “whoever says”:
What qualifies us to speak with the confidence Jesus described?
Do we need a title, or lots of money, or higher education?
No, we only need to believe in Jesus and accept His instructions when speaking to a mountain (problem).
Aspects of our faith can be private and kept to ourselves, but in Mark 11:23 faith isn’t quiet, as we read:
Mark 11:23…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.
Jesus made it clear our heart AND mouth must be engaged to see mountains removed.
Each of us are a “whoever” and that qualifies us to speak to things in our lives that need to be removed or fixed.
Every blessing to each of you,
