Faith can move mountains; doubt can create them. – unknown
Some of the definitions of Faith in the World English Dictionary — n strong or unshakeable belief in something, esp without proof or evidence; Christianity–trust in God and in His actions and promises; any set of firmly held principles or beliefs.
Faith is your inner man or heart knowing and believing that the impossible is possible with God. Faith is not head knowledge. Yes, you need to start by reading and speaking the word of God to get the knowledge into you. Then through mediation, memorization, and speaking the word aloud comes enlightenment and Mountain Moving Faith. Take a couple minute to watch “Moving Mountains”.
Below are the verse I use in the video.
Matthew 17:20 (AMP) He said to them, Because of the littleness of your faith [that is, your lack of firmly relying trust]. For truly I say to you, if you have faith [that is living] like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, Move from here to yonder place, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.
Mark 4:30-32 (AMP) And He said, With what can we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable shall we use to illustrate and explain it? It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when sown upon the ground, is the smallest of all seeds upon the earth; Yet after it is sown, it grows up and becomes the greatest of all garden herbs and puts out large branches, so that the birds of the air are able to make nests and dwell in its shade.
1 Peter 2:24 (NKJV)…who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed. Psalm 23:1 (NKJV) The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
Psalm 138:8 (NKJV) 8 The Lord will perfect that which concerns me;
Philippians 4:19 (NKJV) 19 And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Galatians 3:13 Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”),
Deuteronomy 28 (MSG) 1-6 If you listen obediently to the Voice of God, your God, and heartily obey all his commandments that I command you today, God, your God, will place you on high, high above all the nations of the world. All these blessings will come down on you and spread out beyond you because you have responded to the Voice of God, your God:
God’s blessing inside the city, God’s blessing in the country; God’s blessing on your children, the crops of your land, the young of your livestock, the calves of your herds, the lambs of your flocks. God’s blessing on your basket and bread bowl; God’s blessing in your coming in, God’s blessing in your going out.
7 God will defeat your enemies who attack you. They’ll come at you on one road and run away on seven roads.
8 God will order a blessing on your barns and workplaces; he’ll bless you in the land that God, your God, is giving you. 9 God will form you as a people holy to him, just as he promised you, if you keep the commandments of God, your God, and live the way he has shown you.
10 All the peoples on Earth will see you living under the Name of God and hold you in respectful awe.
11-14 God will lavish you with good things: children from your womb, offspring from your animals, and crops from your land, the land that God promised your ancestors that he would give you. God will throw open the doors of his sky vaults and pour rain on your land on schedule and bless the work you take in hand. You will lend to many nations but you yourself won’t have to take out a loan. God will make you the head, not the tail; you’ll always be the top dog, never the bottom dog, as you obediently listen to and diligently keep the commands of God, your God, that I am commanding you today. Don’t swerve an inch to the right or left from the words that I command you today by going off following and worshiping other gods….
The rest of Duteronomy chapter 28 talks about the curse (which you should read because we are redeemed from it) but because Jesus died on the cross we are redeemed from the curse. As you received the gift of salvation you also need to receive His word as true in your heart. Once it is sown in to the ground in your heart then it will effect your mind and body. These promises are part of our covenant with God. (I will talk about the old and new covenants, also known as old and new testament, another time.)
You are Blessed!
