I’ve often thought about Matthew 7:20 – “Amen, I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
So why, in all of time, has no one moved a mountain through faith alone? Because if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will only want to move a mountain if its God’s will. Faith is doing God’s will and what He wants. If God put a mountain somewhere, chances are, He doesn’t want you to move it. If you want to move the mountain, and He doesn’t, then you are in conflict with God and don’t have the faith the size of a mustard seed.
Those with true faith, could move a mountain but don’t want to because God doesn’t want that mountain moved. The minute you try to move a mountain with your great faith, then, you don’t have great faith.
It’s a brilliant catch 22.
There are countless miracles that have happened throughout history that have demonstrated that faith can do wonderous things. I believe those blessings are like moving mountains.
