As I sat with the Lord this morning I heard the sound of boots marching forth. It was an army of “boots on the ground.” Then I not only heard them but saw them. There was a mighty mountain standing in their way— BUT THEY COULD NOT BE STOPPED! They were moving in the conviction of His Word, the obedience of His instructions and the persuasion of His promises. They were confident in the assurance of faith. They were not dissuaded by what their eyes were seeing or even the voices that were trying to persuade them to stop or turn back. They knew the voice of their God and were marching toward the impossible with a joy that came from knowing their God who makes all things possible. As their feet began to touch the base of the mountain it began to crumble and become level with each step taken but it wasn’t leveled until their feet touched it. They had to move forward to see the impossible made possible. Then I heard the words, “Mountains will move in March as My people march forward!”
It is time to exchange your hope deferred for the “assurance of hope.” Move into the true conviction of the unseen things that God has spoken to you and apprehend them in faith with action. Begin March by marching forward in the faith that says to the mountains that stand before you, “Be removed!”
This week there will be some of you who will go straight through what stood before you last week just because you moved forward in the assurance of your hope! That mountain has no power over you when you walk in the assurance of faith. It crumbles at the sound and touch of your feet of faith. Your boots are your confidence in Him and they have power over everything that has exulted itself against His name, His Word and His truth. It crumbles at the sound of true faith on the move. Like David before Goliath; it will fall!
Rarely in my life have I seen the way open up before me prior to steps of faith taken; it is when I stepped forward (in His leading) that the way was made and mountains were moved.
So Jesus answered and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done. And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.” Matthew 21:21-22
Far too often God’s people wait for the mountain to be removed and end up setting up camp at the base of the mountain that stands before them. They don’t know the authority that accompanies their faith or that the mere sound of the forward movement of their faith levels the path and clears the way. Many who have camped at the base of these impossible mountains have lived in the shadow of hope deferred which has caused their hearts to grow sick. Disappointment and disillusionment have become their view but the Lord is not stopped by mountains or threatened by obstacles; He is calling you to put your boots of faith back on and place your feet on that mountain— then watch as it crumbles before you.
Mountains will fall, giants will fall and hope deferred with crumble as you see your desire fulfilled! What has the Lord spoken to you? Are you waiting passively to see it come to you without putting your feet upon the mountain or facing down the giant? March is a month to put on your boots and march forward— speak to that mountain, “Be ye removed!” Go forward.
“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1
