Living By Faith


If ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. (Matthew 21:21)

There are no immovable mountains. Mark Hankins

Jesus told you to speak to the mountain. The mountain has been speaking to you, telling you how big it is, how long it has been there, and that it is impossible to move. You need to do some speaking to that mountain! God is holding you responsible to “frame your world” with His Word. The devil would like to frame your world with doubt, fear, depression, sickness, and poverty. The Word of God will put him on the run. We can draw five simple conclusions from Mark 11:23:

1.  If it were God’s will for the mountain to be there, Jesus would not have told you to move it.

2.  If you only knew what was on the other side of your mountain, you would move it.

3.  If it is there, you can move it. There is no mountain in the sphere of your life that you cannot move.

4. Your mountain needs to hear your voice.

5.  If what you have in life was completely up to God, Jesus never would have said Mark 11:23.

Confession: With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.  (Matthew 19:26)

For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed… he shall have whatsoever he saith. (Mark 11:23)

Any man may be changed by faith no matter how he may be fettered. Smith Wigglesworth

One day while I was praying and studying, the Holy Spirit began to give me a vision of the possibilities of some great, glorious, marvelous, and wonderful things that God had prepared for my life, but there were some “mountains” between God’s best blessings and me. He said, “If you knew what was on the other side of your mountain, you would move it!”

In Luke 17:6, Jesus uses the illustration of a “sycamine tree.” Someone once joked, “I have identified my problem, and I am sick of mine.” Sometimes things will stay around until you get sick and tired of being sick and tired, and you determine that things must change in your life. Mark 11:23 makes it clear that it is not up to God or someone else to deal with your situation, it’s up to you! Your mountain will obey you! Your mountain needs to hear your voice!

Confession: I speak to every mountain that has hindered supernatural increase in my life and command them to move. I am ready to receive God’s best blessings for me!

When the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? (Luke 18:8)

If your faith isn’t talking, it isn’t working. Faith always has a voice. Mark Hankins

Jesus is looking for faith. Your faith is expressed through your words. The spoken Word of God gives the life of God to all who believe and speak. We hold fast our confession of faith according to Hebrews 4:14 (AMP): In as much then as we have a great High Priest Who has [already] ascended and passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession [of faith in Him].

We live by faith, and we walk by faith. We know all things are possible to those who believe. It takes faith to obey God and to please Him. The Word of faith is not such a difficult thing. The Gospel is called the Word of faith in Romans 10:8.  The Word is near you; salvation is near you; healing is near you, and blessing is near you. It is all as near as your mouth and your heart!

Confession: I have the spirit of faith. I believe and I speak. I have overcoming faith. I have mountain-moving faith. I have a measure of the God-kind of faith, and it’s framing my world with blessing, healing, victory, and prosperity!

Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. (Heb 11:3)

Your success and usefulness in this world will be measured by your confession and your tenacity to hold fast to that confession. F.F. Bosworth

Everything we see was framed with an unseen substance called faith. Faith comes from the spoken Word of God; our words create our world. There is so much power in our words that the devil has tried to derail it. He has gotten into people’s lives and presented a false picture that is not part of God’s plan.

Prison inmates have been known to say, “I have been framed.” They are blaming someone else for their predicament, but they don’t realize how true those words really are. The truth is, everyone has been framed.  Our words and the words of others have framed our world.

As we speak the Word of God, it tears down, roots out, builds, and plants. (Jeremiah 1:4-12) God wants us to speak His words and frame the picture He has for us. He has a custom plan for each of us in Christ Jesus.

Confession: For I am his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God has before ordained that I should walk in them. (Ephesians 2:10)

Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. (Isaiah 43:18-19)

It takes faith to forsake, follow, and forget!

Mark Hankins

The spirit of faith is not afraid to leave things behind. It can be difficult to lay aside treasured items and traditional ways of thinking, but the rewards of obeying God should keep you moving forward. 

Hebrews 11:27 says that by faith, Moses forsook Egypt. Abraham forsook Ur of the Chaldees to go to Canaan. (Genesis 11:31-12:9) Peter, James, and John forsook their boats and followed Jesus. (Mark 1:17-18)

God is always looking for pioneers — people who will not settle for less than God’s best. The spirit of faith will keep them moving, and those pioneers will keep expecting miracles.

Confession:I will forget those things which are behind, and reach forward to those things which are ahead. I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus! (Philippians 3:13-14)
