New Living Translation (NLT)
20 “You don’t have enough faith,” Jesus told them. “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.”
I, personally, have never moved an actual, physical, green, wide, and imposing mountain lol. Nor have I ever seen a physical mountain move.
But how cool would that be?!
To have that much faith-- not have any doubts-- and do something that seems impossible.
Jesus said we could. He said if we had just a tiny amount of faith, we could move a mountain.
And not just a physical mountain-- but an emotional, physical, mental one.
We all have mountains in our lives. Some mountains we have been able to move through prayer and committment to God. Some, we haven't--despite our best efforts.
The point is, don't give up!
No matter what your mountain is, keep praying, keep believing, and Jesus said it can be moved. It doesn't mean that it will move abruptly (or even the way we think it will)... but it will move.. .as long as we have the faith.
If you are struggling with 'faith', that's ok. I think we all struggle at times. It's definitely something to pray about-- and don't be shy. Have others pray for you. Email me or leave a comment and I'll pray for you (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I could definitely use some prayer in this respect myself.
Jesus never said that it wouldn't be impossible to have enough faith-- just that if you did NOTHING would be impossible...
God Bless You :)
