MOVE THAT MOUNTAIN — Linda Evans Shepherd
I’d often pondered the words spoken by Jesus,
“I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.” Matthew 17:20
I would imagine placing one hand on my hip then pointing at the nearest mountain, saying, “Say you big ol hunk of rock, go throw yourself in the sea.”
As the movie reel of my imagination continued to play I would see the mountain stand up and spring into the ocean, causing such a splash that the earth was hit with one tidal wave after another.
I would ask the Lord, “So why then would I ever want to literally throw a mountain into the sea?”
It wasn’t until a friend and I were praying for a gentleman at church, did I get a clearer picture. The mountain Jesus was referring to was more like a mountain of trouble.
As I prayed for the gentleman I said. “I feel you’ve experienced a lot of rejection in your life. And in fact, this rejection is something that’s been in your family line for generations.”
He nodded. “It’s true. But what can I do about it?”
“I think it’s time to move that mountain. But first, you are going to have to be ‘in Jesus.'”

“What do you mean?”
“Jesus is our armor. He is our salvation, our righteousness, our truth, our peace, our faith as well as the word. When we are in Jesus, we can command any mountain to move because we are commanding the mountain to move in Jesus, through Jesus, and in agreement with Jesus.”
After the gentleman repented for any generational and personal sin, I told him, “When Jesus said, ‘It is finished,’ those words also apply to your mountain of rejection. That stronghold is defeated through the power of the cross. In fact, when you are in Jesus, and you tell a mountain to move, it’s like you (in Jesus) are in a bulldozer pushing it out of the way — through the power of his completed work on the cross.”
The gentleman prayed for the mountain to move and it moved! This gentleman, through the power of Jesus, cast Mount Rejection into the sea!
If you are dealing with any mountains or strongholds in your life. Please pray the prayer below, then watch your mountain disappear.
Because you died on the cross for my sins, and because I have turned away from those sins and turned to you, I am in you and you are in me. You are my salvation, my righteousness, my truth, my peace, my faith and the word living in me. First, I repent for any sin that caused the mountain of ______ in my life or the lives of my ancestors. In you, and through you, and in agreement with you, I tell that mountain of ______ to be removed and to be thrown into the sea. I am praying this in the power of your faith in me, with you and through your power. IT IS FINISHED.
In your name, Amen.
