Mustard Seed Faith

"So Jesus said to them, “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 NKJV) You can do anything if you have just even a little faith. Jesus says so! He says if you have the faith of a mustard seed (which is VERY small) you can move mountains. Mountains can be lots of things: problems at home, work, lack of job, bad boss, difficult partner, lack of faith, etc. Now, here's the thing. God didn't say the mountain would move immediately or quickly, He just said you could move it. God also didn't specify being able to move it by yourself. Sometimes one needs help. You "can do all things through Christ who strengthens you." (Phillipians 4:13 NKJV, emphasis mine) And, you need to be looking at the right mountain when it moves...but you CAN move it...you just need to keep that little bit of faith, keep your eye on your goal, and stay steadfast no matter what is going on around you...and that mountain WILL move!
