How To Unlock Your Power and Activate Mountain Moving Faith

By: Ruthann Mckenzie



He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’, and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.” 

Matthew 17:20


How many times have you been in a situation that in the natural looked impossible?  Perhaps you are facing a stressful situation in your personal life at the moment. Maybe you have a dream or vision and have been working on it, but the situation still seems fruitless.  It could even be something as deep as not knowing the next steps you should take with what to do with your life.  Whatever the case may be, all you need to get through any situation starts with faith the size of a mustard seed!

All we need is a little faith, to start where we are.  We need begin by using the resources that God provides in front of us at this very moment.  That will unlock great things in our life, through the faith we have in Jesus. Why did Jesus reference a mustard seed in Matthew 17:20? We usually think because a mustard seed is one of the smallest seeds of all, which indicates the small amount of faith we need to have. However, although a mustard seed is exceedingly small, it grows into a mighty and strong plant. Our faith will grow and it will cause mountains to move by our good words of faith over our lives. 

Usually, when we see that impossible thing standing in our way like a mountain, we begin to doubt.  "Lord, I could never get over that mountain. I rather just stand at the foot of the mountain and cry". We have a tendency to speak negatively when we see a situation and perceive it as all bad. And if you do not have that tendency to speak negatively, I will be the first to admit that I do this.  In Matthew 17:20, the Lord told them to say to the mountain 'Move from here to there'...It is not possible to speak negatively into a situation and expect a positive outcome.  We must speak life into our situations through Christ.  "Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen", that is what Hebrew 11:1 let's us know.  If we are certain of a positive outcome to an impossible situation, then speak life into that situation.

Only Believe!

As we speak life and as we continue to believe, this is the watering and nourishment of our faith.  I believe that Abraham, in his old age, continued to believe in God about his descendants outnumbering the sand.  Year after year, he did not see anything change, but Abraham knew God to be faithful from the past and choose to believe.  Keeping the faith when things look bleak is where the faith we planted flourishes.  In due season, if we do not grow weary, much like Abraham, God will be faithful to us and keep His promises. As it states in Luke 1:37, "For nothing will be impossible with God." If you believe this to be true, then remain in faith.


Nothing will be impossible if we SPEAK ITBELIEVE, and have FAITH over it!  Speak daily over the situation and speak to God about everything that is on your heart.  Be positive and know that the mountain will move.  Believe that God has the best in store for your life.  No matter the situation, big or small, have hope and expect a good outcome in the end.  Most of all, let your faith grow! That mustard seed of faith will turn into a mighty plant.  The faith will become unshakable and the impossible situation will turn with the mighty hand of God.  Stay in FAITH today!
