The Potential of Your Faith

Jesus used shock treatments to jolt people out of thinking like humans so we would start thinking like God. He stunned everyone when He said, “Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him” (Mark 11:23). His statement seemed so impossible that He reinforced it by saying, "Truly I say to you." In other words, “What I’m telling you really is true!”

Jesus chose this mind-boggling example to show the potential of faith. Imagine speaking to a huge mountain and then see it rise out of the ground, hover in mid-air and then zoom miles away into an ocean. His statement was so astonishing that if Christ Himself had not spoken these words, it certainly would not have been recorded in God’s Word. But it is.

We usually think inside the box so He chose an example that we would never consider—something that’s totally out of the realm of human possibility. Grasping this truth about God’s ability to do the impossible (Mark 10:27) is the key to growing in our faith. (If God Knows What I Need, Why Should I Pray? pp. 22-23)

The same supernatural God that can move a mountain is more than able to solve any human problem. What is the difficulty that you’re facing today? Take it to the Lord in prayer and trust Him. And remember that nothing is impossible with God.
