"Faith Can Move Mountains"

Matthew 17:20-21

[20] And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief:
for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of
mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove
hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing
shall be impossible unto you. [21] Howbeit this kind goeth
not out but by prayer and fasting.

Introduction

In the October 2, 1998, edition of the Baltimore Sun
carried a story about Mt. McKinley, the highest mountain
on the North American continent. Recent research has
apparently proven that a mountain expedition which
claimed in 1906 to have in fact mounted Mt. McKinley,
infact, fabricated their figures.

They never really completely climbed the mountain. The
mountain, in fact, is over 20,000 feet high.

Climbing it was no easy feat. After reading that, I was
struck by the realization which may sound simple, but it
dawned on me that mountains really are hard to
climb.

That’s why mountains have long come to symbolize the
hardships and difficulties of life.

Marvin Gaye and Tammy Terrell’s sang a song "Ain’t
no mountain high enough to keep me from
getting to you, babe...."

Mountains have long represented.
Problems to be solved .......
Obstacles to be overcome ........
Crosses to be carried ........
Burdens to be borne ...........
Troubles to be triumphed over ..........
Difficulties to be dealt with .......

Mountains are problems.
Death is a mountain
Sickness is a mountain.
Troubles are mountains.
Hardships are mountains.
Family crises are mountains.
Unpaid bills are mountains.
Rebellious children are mountains.
Whoremongering husbands and wifes are mountains.
Lying friends are mountains.
Crack addicted love ons are mountains.

Scott Peck, in his book "The Road Less
Traveled" says life is a problem.

The truth of the matter is life is filled with mountains, but
my Jesus says if you have faith the size of a mustard seed,
you can say to this mountain, "Move from here to
there," and it will obey you.

Let me tell you why. First, faith may not always change
the outer circumstances of life, but it always changes the
inner landscape of life.

Hebrews, chapter 11, verse 1, says, "Faith is the
assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of
things not seen."

And, frankly, that makes all the difference.

It’s not always what’s on the outside that matters, but
what’s on the inside that really makes the difference.

When I was a little kid, I remember reading a book about
General Hannibal. You probably remember the story of
this African General by the name of Hannibal crossing
over the Alps and the great mountains and within
