Faith Moves Mountains
When Our Faith is in God, We Can Overcome Any Mountain
When I was pregnant with my second daughter, I spent a long time asking God, “What is Your special promise to her? What is Your vision for this little person’s life? How do I know that you are moving through her?” And during one of my quiet times with God, He spoke this verse loudly to me:
”He replied, ‘Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, 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
We can always find God’s answers to our questions in scripture and its many Bible verses about growth, and this verse in Matthew is a beautiful reminder of the power of faith. The vision He spoke to me was of a girl who will grow into a woman who would have mountain-moving faith. The kind of faith that moves mountains, that would drive away any demon and would stay firm during any season of her life because God is within her. The best part is that this scripture is for all of us – as long as we have faith even as small as a mustard seed, we can be sure to move mountains through Christ.

What is the Meaning of the “Faith Can Move Mountains” verse?
We know that Jesus made so many miracles happen in His short three-and-a-half years of ministry. One of these is when He healed a demon-possessed boy, simply by telling the demon to flee. The disciples, among them His inner circle, Peter, James, and John, had been trying to heal him, and yet they couldn’t. They were amazed by what Jesus had done, and they asked, Jesus, How did you do that? How were you able to rebuke this demon and drive him away?
This is where the verse Matthew 17:20 comes in, when Jesus tells them that all they need is faith the size of a mustard seed, and they will be able to move mountains. But what does that mean exactly? What does “faith can move mountains” mean to us? Do we attempt to do that literally?
What it means is that nothing is bigger than our God, and that He is more powerful than anything in this world. And when we put our faith in Him, we put our faith in someone who is above and beyond this mortal plane.
What Should We Have Faith in?
We are going to face things in this lifetime that might make us want to throw the towel in and give up. It could be a wall in our career that we can’t seem to get over, an illness we can’t seem to shake, or a hopelessness in a relationship we can’t seem to heal. But what we can see in Matthew 17:20 is that our faith in God and in His power is what gives us the ability to do the seemingly impossible. Our mountain can look like anything, but this verse reminds us that our salvation has only One Face: The face of Jesus.
Our Favorite “Faith Moves Mountains” Verses
We knew it was important to have a collection that highlights this verse, because it is easy to forget when we are faced with heavy things. Sometimes, the darkness can be overwhelming, and we hope that this collection can shine a light on your faith and help you in your every day.
We’ve put together some of our other favorite scripture that can help you remain faithful in challenging times. These are some of the most interesting displays of faith that is found in the Bible, and we hope you find inspiration in them.
In Luke 7:9, in the story of the Centurion Jesus says to the crowd and says about the Centurion’s faith, “…he said, ‘I tell you, I have not found such great faith even in Israel.’” The Centurion’s faithfulness was so strong, he know Jesus could heal his son even from afar.
Another story about great faith didn’t even involve words. The story of the woman with the perfume in the alabaster jar, only found in the book of Luke, shows another display of great faith. Luke 7:50 says “Jesus said to the woman, ‘Your faith has saved you; go in peace.’”
An interesting take in the book of James shows us that when we have true faith, this faith will shine through in our actions. James 2:17 – 18 says, “In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.”
Here are a few more verses that will hopefully speak to you as well:
Hebrews 11:1 – “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”
Psalm 46:10 – “Be still, and know that I am God.”
John 7:38 – “Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”
2 Corinthians 5:7 – “For we walk by faith, not by sight.”
