"Faith Can Move Mountains"
 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.  Howbeit this kind goeth
not out but by prayer and fasting.
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
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 Italy.
And in this little story, I can remember the pictures of the
elephants and the donkeys and the army of the Africian
Hannibal crossing the Alps to Italy. This was indeed a
great feat of military couraget.
In fact, it was one of the greatest acts of military courage in
I don’t know, whether this story was true or false, but there
was a story that went along with the various pictures in the
And according to the story it said that Hannibal, when he
got to the Alps with his army and was about to cross over
his army began to rebel.
The soldiers saw these gigantic mountains before them.
They saw this incredible barrier in front of them and
they were afraid to move.
They were ready to turn around and go back home.
But according to the story, Hannibal rallied his troops and
his armies by standing before them pointing toward the
Alps and declaring, "Forward march, we see no
Alps! ... We see no mountains!"
And with these words of encouragement the army of
Hannibal went forth over the mountains and into Italy.
Now it may not always be that easy when we are facing
MOUNTAINS, but the truth of the matter is sometimes
you got to go through life and just declare, "Forward
march, I don’t see no Mountains!
Forward march, I don’t see that problem.
Forward march, I don’t see that obstacle.
Forward march, I don’t see that hardship.
Forward march, I don’t see that cancer.
Forward march, I don’t see your cheating.
Forward march, I don’t see your lying.
Yes, Faith can change the inner landscape. And if the
inner landscape has been changed, it don’t matter what’s on
the outer horizon.
In 2 Corinthians 5, the Apostle Paul was dealing, I
think with his own sense of death, and in this context he
says and I quote, "We walk by faith, not by sight."
Yes, Faith changes the inner landscape. That’s why St. I
can say, "Faith is our outward sense that makes
our inward vision clear."
I read a poem that said, "Fear knocked at the door.
