“Mountain, Be Moved!”

4 09 2017

O Lord, what kind of woman can say to a “mountain” in her life, “Be removed and be cast into the sea”?

What kind of man can say to a demon that persecutes a young boy, “Come out of him”?

What kind of power have you granted your disciple?

Such a disciple lives a lifestyle of devotion, in which prayer and fasting are typical, not exceptional.

Such a disciple forgives any offender, and is therefore forgiven by the Father in heaven (Mk.11:25).

Such a disciple believes that God is able to move a mountain, and does not doubt in his heart but believes that those things he says will be done (Mk.11:23).

And such a disciple is so surrendered to God and the lordship of Christ that he or she does not quit even when these truths do not “work.”

And maybe that is the greater mountain in God’s mind.
