Matthew 21:21 – Move Mountains

Today’s readings: Ex 12:14‐13:16, Matt 20:29‐21:22, Ps 25:16‐22, Prov 6:12‐15

Something that challenged me: Matthew 21:21 – And Jesus answered them, “Truly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ it will happen.

Rebecca and I get to go to Israel in March! Two weeks ago I finished the book “Where Jesus Walked” by Stacy. In it he pointed out that on the road from Jerusalem to Bethany – where Matthew 21 says Jesus was walking that day, both Herodium and the Dead Sea are visible. After King Herod built Herodium, people said that he was able to move mountains. Jesus says to his disciples, with faith we are able to do greater things than even the greatest human accomplishments. With faith we can speak to Herodium and it will be thrown into the Dead Sea.

Apply: I was challenged by this passage today to have a more aggressive prayer life. I want to aim for the stars for God and allow him to use me.

Do you have any stories of God doing supernatural things through your prayers?
