Mark 11:22-23 So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God.  For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.

          In Mark 11:12 Jesus commanded the fig tree to wither; the moment Jesus spoke, that fig tree began to die from the root.  The next day when the disciples walked by the fig tree it was completely dried up! The moment Jesus spoke, that tree obeyed, but it was not seen until the next day.
          As you read further Jesus talks to us about commanding our mountain to move.  Many of us are praying to God about our mountain, begging Him to move it. Instead, Jesus tells us to command our mountain to move! We need to stop talking to God about our mountain and start talking to our mountain about our God.  Just like Jesus commanded that fig tree to die, we need to command our mountain to move!
          At nine-years-old, I was diagnosed with Alopecia Universalis, a rare, incurable disease that leaves you completely bald.
          I wanted to be healed so badly but did not know how to attain it. I would stay up nearly all night long begging God to heal me. I would dream of waking up in the morning completely healed. I saw myself as the woman in Matthew 9 that touched the Lord's garment and was made completely whole.
          I read the New Testament over and over again, it was so obvious to me that Jesus was our healer, but how do we get healed? We can't physically touch Jesus like the girl in Matthew 9.  It took me until November of 2014, nearly 15 years later, to get a revelation of God's healing power.
          We live under a better covenant than the girl in Matthew 9, we do not need to touch Jesus because He lives inside of us!  Now we are the ones with the power, we are the ones who are commanded to go and heal the sick (Mark 16:14-18). 
          Jesus already healed us 2,000 years ago on the cross. He already provided us with everything we will ever need. He finished His work, if you are a Christian than healing is already yours.  Sozo, the Greek word for salvation is literally translated to not only saved but healed!  That means that when you get saved, healing is also yours!
          I began to thank the Lord for what He already accomplished. I would look at my bald head in the mirror and thank Him for my hair.  I memorized Psalm 103:1-3 and would claim that over my life, "He heals all of my diseases." He already died, so now it's, "He healed all of my diseases."  It's a finished work. I began to thank Him for what He already did and then commanded my mountain to move. I commanded my hair to grow. I stopped talking to God about my problems and began to talk to my problems about my God. Alopecia Universalis no longer has any place in my body.  
          If you are in need of a divine touch from the Lord today, know that He already provided it.  All you have to do is believe it.
