We all at times face the impossible don’t we? We face a mountain so big there doesn’t seem to be an answer.
A debilitating illness with no cure.
An imploded marriage with no reconciliation.
A terminated career with no direction.
Yet, in this darkness Jesus promises, “I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”*
Even an almost imperceptible amount of faith is enough to change the impossible.
Jesus says, “Whatever mountain you face simply say, ‘Move out of my way’ and it will go.
I want to qualify something here. Jesus didn’t promise, as too many claim, that we can dictate to God the details of how we want him to answer.
But he does say we have God’s unlimited power to move the mountains that block us.
Second, he says, “Nothing is impossible when we ask.”
The only mountain that won’t move, the only challenge we can’t overcome is the one we don’t ask God to solve.
When you think about it what could we face that God doesn’t have the power to overcome?
Matthew 17:20 (NIV)
