Developing a Faith that Moves

In the Gospel according to Matthew, we find a powerful passage where Jesus tells his disciples, "You do not have enough faith. I tell you the truth, if you had faith as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and the mountain would move. Nothing would be impossible" (Matthew 17:20 NTV).

These words resonated in the hearts of the disciples after Jesus reproached them for being unable to cast out a demon from a young man. How many times have we felt this way? Personally, I have questioned my faith when my prayers seemed unanswered. Can you relate to this experience?

Although the disciples lacked faith in that particular situation, it is essential to remember that there were also moments when they demonstrated strong faith, performing healings and casting out demons. Their faith flourished when they understood who they were in Christ and believed in the potential they possessed.

On several occasions, I have prayed for someone's health without immediate healing. I have cried out for financial needs without seeing drastic changes in my bank account. Does this sound familiar?

The key is discovering our identity in Christ. When we understand who we are and act accordingly, our faith is activated to accomplish what the divine power within us can and wants to do. Let's remember the words of Peter: "I have neither silver nor gold for you, but what I do have, I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, get up and walk!" (Acts 3:6 NTV).

When our identity in Christ is strengthened, when we live in accordance with that truth, our faith becomes an unstoppable force. Just as the disciples took the Gospel to the ends of the earth with signs and wonders, we too can manifest the power of God in our lives.

In summary, developing a faith that moves mountains involves knowing our identity in Christ and living in accordance with that truth. Our faith will do what the One who lives in us can and wants to do! Nothing less and nothing more.

This article was inspired by the sermon on November 25, 2023, and I share it with you in the hope that it strengthens your faith and encourages you in your walk with Christ.
