Weekend Wisdom

Weekend Wisdom: It Will Move

Jesus uttered today’s Weekend Wisdom to his disciples after they could not heal the demon possessed boy – talk about poor customer service! Then the father escalated the situation up to the man he knew could cast out the demon harming his son.

After casting out the demon, Jesus told His disciples in private why they could not cast out the demon.

He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, 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.”

Jesus Christ
Matthew 17:20
New International Version

So what mountains in your life have you not been able to move?

In the book Draw the Circle, The 40 Day Prayer Challenge, author Mark Batterson reminds us to speak to the mountain about our God. (Day 14)

After all, it took only one little stone from David’s slingshot to take out the “mountain” Goliath who used fear to keep the Israelites shaking in their boots. David had faith in his God and told Goliath

 “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.” 1 Samuel 17:45 (NIV)

Imagine the mountains you will move after developing faith the size of a mustard seed.
