Matthew 17:20 KJV “And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.”
Don’t you just love the way Jesus teaches us? Can you imagine the looks on His disciples faces when he said, ‘You can tell this mountain to move from here to there and it will move?’ Jesus wants us to be mountain movers too.
Hebrews 11:6 KJV “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
God loves rewarding those who seek Him diligently. And He loves demonstrating how powerful our faith in Him is. Faith goes beyond anything in this world. It is not from this world. It is of God.
Hebrews 11:1 KJV “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
The natural mind doesn’t understand faith. ‘How can there be evidence of things not seen?’ they may ask. To answer such a question I’ll give an example: you believe that wind exist, right? But can you see the wind? No. But you do see evidence of the wind in everything from a sailboat to a hurricane. Likewise those who have faith in God and His mighty power don’t have to see everything physically to know that He exist. But they can also see the invisible qualities of God through the things He has made.
Romans 1:20 KJV “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.”
FAITH MOVES MOUNTAINS/GIANTS TOO
To illustrate faith further a young boy named David was moved by his faith to boldly confront a battle tested champion named Goliath. David wasn’t a soldier. He was a young shepherd boy who herded sheep, and wrote songs and poems about God. A highly unlikely candidate to take on a warrior of Goliath’s stature. Oh, I forgot to add; Goliath was a nine and a half foot giant! Had David ever fought a nine and a half foot giant before? Had he ever SEEN or experienced this? No. So what evidence did he have that emboldened him to take on such a task? Was this boy just nuts? Let’s let David answer these questions in his own words.
While asking King Saul for permission to fight the giant this is what David said:
1 Samuel 17:34-37 NIV “But David said to Saul, “Your servant has been keeping his father’s sheep. When a lion or a bear came and carried off a sheep from the flock,  I went after it, struck it and rescued the sheep from its mouth. When it turned on me, I seized it by its hair, struck it and killed it.  Your servant has killed both the lion and the bear; this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, because he has defied the armies of the living God.  The Lord who rescued me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will rescue me from the hand of this Philistine.” Saul said to David, “Go, and the Lord be with you.”
What a man! I mean, “boy.” Hah hah hah! David was something else. And yes, he was successful in striking down and defeating the giant Goliath. This great victory of faith has become known for thousands of years. Do you SEE what faith can do for you?
Like David we can do things too we’ve never done or seen before. What evidence do we have of things unseen? What mighty acts have we witnessed our heavenly Father do? To whom can we compare our God? To no one! He is the King of the universe!
2 Chronicles 16:9 KJV “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.”
