Move that Mountain

“Because of your unbelief; 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 17:20

Jesus said to his disciples it was because of their unbelief that a boy who suffered from epilepsy was not healed and that faith was necessary for his healing and deliverance.

A mustard seed is extremely small and like all seed when sown in the earth and watered will spring forth and grow into a large tree. Locked up in the seed is life that will germinate in the right environment and produce a tree with the ability to reproduce.

Your faith is powerful - not so much in its size as little as a mustard seed, but in its life and ability to produce a living, active faith that does not waver; a faith that takes hold of the promises of God, and makes impossibilities possible.

Jesus says you will speak to the mountain and that means any situation that is seemingly impossible and insurmountable. He did not say pray for the mountain to move but to illustrate that obstacles in our lives can be moved by our faith.

Faith that is alive and active has a voice. Remember today that nothing is impossible to you, for as you believe so shall it be done. Speak to your mountain and command it to move in Jesus’ name.

Dear Lord Jesus, I give You praise and thanks for all You have been and are to me. Without You I am nothing and can do nothing but with You I know all things are possible, for You have said, “All things are possible to those who believe.” Forgive me for doubting at times. From today I will say what I believe in my heart and I know every mountain will be removed.
