When the Mountain Moves


For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ … Mark 11:23 NKJV

Have you ever tried working up enough faith to move a mountain? I sometimes wonder if I could even move a pebble but maybe we’re missing the point of mountain moving. Jesus never did miracles just to put on a show. He calmed storms, multiplied bread or healed the sick to meet a need. If we are called to move mountains with our faith then it must also be for some good reason.

Can you imagine people waking up asking, “Where in the world did that mountain go that was here yesterday. The answer is in Zechariah

‘Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain! And he shall bring forth the capstone With shouts of “Grace, grace to it!” ’ ” Zechariah 4:7

By God’s word the mountain moves so that we can walk across the plain with God’s love to a new destination of Grace.

  1. I don’t read that Jesus said the mountain would necessarily be moved in one day. I was challenged by an unbeliever to pray for a lake to be moved 200 feet. [Long story – it’s in my book BARRIERS (So, if prayers are so powerful, how come mine don’t get answered?)” ] I prayed every day all winter, and in the spring when the ice melted, there was 200 feet of beach!
    I think the Lord rewards persistence. 😉

      Good one. I had an Indian Pastor talk about a widow praying for a large hill to move because she had to climb over it to get to church. Apparently the government came and moved it to build a road! You never know how God will answer.

      1. I’ve heard a similar story about a church that was told by the government that they couldn’t open their new building because their parking lot wasn’t big enough, and they were built right up against a mountain. After they prayed, the telephone company came to get permission to haul away a chunk of the mountain – and paid the church for it, enough to pave the new section of parking lot. 😀
