Even though inanimate objects have no life in them, they also respond to God’s words. They also have spiritual ears or what we can call a word sensor that makes them responsive. And for the purpose of this study, a ‘mountain’ is anything posing as a difficulty or barrier, and that includes a mountain itself.
You can direct God’s words to a physical, non-living object, and it would respond. Moses divided the Red Sea (Exodus 14:15-23) and got water from the rock (Ex. 17:5-6) using his rod, as instructed by God. Elisha healed the water of Jericho with salt (2 Kings 2:19-22) and with his words, the widow’s oil got multiplied (2 Kings 4:1-7). The sun stood still and the moon stayed in Ajalon, at the command of Joshua (Joshua 10:12-14).
A National Youth Service Corps member once testified how his colleague returned home one day and couldn’t find his room key, and a padlock had been used to lock the door. The corps member simply went to the door, held the padlock and said, “Ephphatha” (Mark 7:32-35). The padlock opened as he pulled it and his colleague was able to enter his room.
It is not only living things that respond to God’s words; non-living things do too. Nothing is too hard for God to do. He controls both the physical and spiritual, both the living and non-living. Everything was created by Him, and so responds to Him.
Your mountain could be your unsold goods, malfunctioning equipment, ATM card, a life- threatening house or piece of land, etc. Crude miracles still happen! So, cheer up! Step up your faith. Walk up to that mountain and speak God’s words to it. You shall return with a testimony!
