What could possibly have prompted someone to write this powerful quote: “Faith Can Move Mountains”
The origin of this supremely motivating quote is from the holy Bible. It was recorded in the 1582 Rheims Bible, in Matthew XXI 21, as:
“If you shal haue faith, and stagger not, … and if you shal say to this mountaine, Take vp and throw thy self into the sea, it shal be done.”
The power of our faith can be so immense and monumental, that it can create a shift in the most unimaginable spheres of our lives.
While researching about this phenomenal quote, I stumbled upon these words by Pastor Rick where he writes:
“Faith opens the door to miracles. If you study the Bible and history, you find that every time God moves on Earth and does a miracle, it’s because somebody believed.”
He goes on to say,
“God has set up the universe in a hierarchy of laws, and the law of faith is actually a higher law than the laws of nature. That’s where miracles come in. Because when faith is used, the law of faith goes into practice, and the law of faith can actually do more than the laws of physics.”
He further says,
“Does God still perform miracles today? Of course he does. Every time you stretch your faith, God does miracles — every single time. My question for you is this: What’s the mountain in your life that needs to be moved? What’s the thing you’ve already decided will never change? That’s a self-fulfilling prophecy. How do you know it won’t change? Maybe God wants your faith to supersede the law of nature. He has in the past, he is doing it today all around the world. God is in the mountain-moving business. Do not doubt or underestimate what he wants to do in your life.”
Pastor Rick’s posts last line completely resonates with every cell, every fiber of my being:
You might say, “I don’t see many miracles in my life.” I wonder why! Are you seeing with eyes of fear, or are you seeing with eyes of faith? Faith opens the door to miracles.
I ended my weekend listening to my DH’s favourite playlist. I never thought I would convert to a Pink Floyd fan, till 12 years back. And a Led Zeppelin one too. As we sat sprawled on the sofa sipping a glass of gin and tonic, Led Zepplin’s, “Stairway to Heaven” that I always had heard on the go, caught my attention with these lines:
“And a new day will dawn, for those who stand on. And the forest will echo with laughter.”

Let’s start our week with faith overflowing in our hearts. Faith that will not just move mountains, but shake up our old belief systems and fears, transforming our lives beyond our imagination.
“Have faith in God! If you have faith in God and don’t doubt, you can tell this mountain to get up and jump into the sea, and it will. Everything you ask for in prayer will be yours, if you only have faith.” (Mark 11:22-24 CEV)
