Joel Osteen Daily Devotional February 8 2022
Matthew 17:20, NKJV
…if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, “Move from here to there,” and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.
When David faced Goliath, a giant twice his size, it wasn’t a coincidence that he looked at him and said, “This day I will defeat you and feed your head to the birds of the air.” He wasn’t just being positive; he understood the principle of speaking to mountains and seeing the impossible happen. He had to release the victory with his spoken words. If he would have talked defeat, we wouldn’t know who David was. If he would have just thought positively, “I can do this. I’ve got what it takes,” he wouldn’t have defeated Goliath. He knew the miracle was in his mouth, so he spoke it out. “I will defeat you.” You may have past mistakes, or sickness, or a mountain of debt in your path. You need to announce to that mountain, “Move out of the way. You are not going to keep me from my destiny.” Get your heart and words going in the right direction. You have to say it before you’ll see it.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that You are in no way limited to what my circumstances look like and have been. Thank You that I can have the faith to speak to my mountains to move out of my way. Help me to have the boldness to speak out the words that You say and set a miracle in motion. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
