He replied, “Because you have so little faith, I tell you the truth, 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.” Matthew 17:20
Mountains? We all have mountains some big, some small, some may be terrible diseases, some are relationships, some physical difficulties, and some spiritual. All these mountains are different in there own way but not impossible to overcome like in the book of Matthew says if you have faith as small as a mustard seed,you can tell the mountain to move and it will. Some mountains won’t move how you would like but God knows how your different mountains need moving. I have a mountain it’s called Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) ,it hasn’t moved how I would like but this doesn’t mean I have too little faith.
9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. 2 Corinthians 12: 9-10
Sometimes the answer is like what God tells Paul after asking God 3 times to remove a thorn in his flesh, I don’t know what the thorn was doesn’t really matter. Yeah when I was little with my so called mountain I was like why me, why can’t I do things like the other kids, like running and jumping, you see a kid thinks simple like that, glad that was the only concern I had back then, mountains are huge you have to take one step at a time but eventually you conquer that mountain that seemed impossible at the beginning. Conquering doesn’t always mean your done with the problem, sometimes it’s just God showing you how to deal with the problem. I have had difficulties in the past with questions of why me? Now it’s like why not me? You see my weakness as made me strong, by me climbing this hard mountain of a life, I’ve been able to show how strong and powerful my God really is.
13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. Matthew 7: 13-14
