I trust the Holy Spirit will stir within you a spirit to concur the mountains that God has for you!
I’m not talking of the negative mountains that need removing but rather the positives mountains that God has predestined you to possess! The mountain that belongs to just you? What is it?

By definition of Mountain I mean; The dream on you, the vision in your heart, the ministry, the family, the marriage, it could be the property, the mission, the plans that God has put in your heart….!!
READ: Numbers 13, Joshua 14:12
SO HOW DO WE DO IT?
4 Keys that come out in this story, these keys are sequential meaning they have to be in this order!!!

1. Conversion
a. Caleb was not a Hebrew, his father came from the Kenizzite people and Caleb was born into Egypt as a slave!! If you haven’t committed your life to God, you can today!! Everyone needs a conversion moment!!

2. Caleb “Wholly followed after the Lord” “Closed the Gap”
a. To be filled wholly of God…it could be put to close the gap….like a hunter to his prey; he gives everything to pursue the call of the hunt. Like a friend Paul, he would spend cold winter nights, spent large amounts of cash to buy special gear to be better, he would trek miles into mountains to hunt…He would give everything for it… b. Question for you all today! How here is wholly following the Lord today?

3. Caleb was of a different Spirit
(living Faith) Massive KEY
a. A spirit of FAITH!! b. What is this mountain moving FAITH?
(after not being able delivering a boy) Jesus said to His disciples, “Because you had such little faith; for assuredly, I say to you, 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. Matthew
So what is faith as a mustard seed?
Mar 4:31-32 tells us the mustard seed when sown on the ground, although it is the smallest of all the seeds that are on the ground, but when it is sown it grows up and becomes the largest of all the garden trees, YOU CAN HAVE DEAD FAITH THAT DOESNT GROW, IT DOESN’T PRODUCE AND IT DOESN’T DO ANYTHING, and it certainly doesn’t concur mountains.
MUSTARD SEED FAITH IS: it remove limitations, it grows to full, you have a growing faith not a dead faith, your faith is alive in God and you let the water grow the seed and you must let it take root
in your life….that’s what mustard seed faith is all about!! It’s becoming a faith that produces, it grows, it doesn’t stay the same month after month, year after year, it is always growing! Then you’ll have faith to concur mountains like Caleb!!

SO HOW DO WE GROW OUR FAITH??
Hear are a few ways…attend church, 2. Pray, 3. Worship, 3. Read and meditate on the Bible, 4. Attend small groups… Your spirit should not be the same as it was last year! Your prayer should be growing, your devotions should be going deeper…etc

4. A Positive Confession
As a man thinks so is he – Prov 23:7 1 Peter 5:7 casting all your anxieties on Him, because He cares for you.
a. A negative confession & attitude kept the people out of taking their mountain!! MOTHER TERESA
Did you know that she applied to her church high council 6 times and she got rejected?
The leadership never thought she had anything good to give…
NO BODY SAW GREATNESS IN HER AT THE BEGINNING…
Years went by, while she patiently served, until finally the seventh time the church council let her go out! SHE NEVER LET GO OF HER DREAM & SHE NEVER STOPPED BELIEVING IN HERSELF!!
NEVER STOP BELIEVING IN WHAT GOD HAS PUT IN YOU, Even if no one else believes in you or can see it. LOCK INTO GOD, for His thoughts, ways and plans are higher than ours.

5. A FIGHTING attitude to take out the Giants…
Caleb didn’t wait for them to attack him! a. What are the giants in your life? Anything of the enemy that you know is in your life that shouldn’t be there!!! Addictions, anger, abuse, harden heart, fear, rejection…
b. Giants don’t have any right to stay, unless you allow them too!
c. God commanded His people to drive them out, never to return!!! d. Caleb waited all that time, 40yrs later for his mountain, at 85 he still wanted that mountain, and it was the hardest ground of all grounds to concur!!!
e. Deal to your enem
