Move Your Mouth to Move Your Mountain

By Karen Jethroe

Matthew 17:20 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

20 ...For truly I say to you, if you have faith [[b]that is living] like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, Move from here to yonder place, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.


One of the things that I love about having a verbal relationship with the Lord is that He truly does speak back to those who speak to Him (Jeremiah 33:3). There are so many Christian people who don’t know this. They don’t know that God will speak to your spirit. He will have a conversation with you beyond the words that you read in the bible.


Let me give you one of my recent experiences. Last Sunday at the end of church service, the Holy Spirit told me to tell the church members to expect “God” encounters this week. In our church, we have a growing hunger to see the favor of God show up in any and all areas of our lives. So this word from the Holy Spirit raised my level of expectation. It was as if God had given us a timeline to go by. If you know anything about believing and waiting on God to do anything, then you can imagine why this was the best news ever. We were about to see God’s “demonstrated delight”, also known as divine favor, to show up for us.

Now, God did not say which way He would show up and because of that, I wasn’t really sure what to look for. My list is long so it’s not as if I haven’t provided Him with options. But what would it be? Healing? Finances? Relationships? Family issues? Revival? Or maybe, all of the aforementioned.


Well, this morning while in the shower, I heard the voice of God speak to me and say, “March is Mountain Moving Month”. I will take something the size of a mustard seed to move something the size of a mountain!”
