Moving the Mountain

Posted on: 7-15-112011

In the book I’m currently reading You Were Born For This by Bruce Wilkinson I came across something today that changed the way I interpreted a very familiar verse of Scripture. It really all boils down to one word that I was not getting correct.

“So Jesus said to them, ‘Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a 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

What I was missing was,”you WILL say…” I think I’ve always interpreted that as “you can say…” the difference in those two words is monumental if you really think about it! The word “can” means it’s possible to do, but the word “will” means that it is going to happen! It’s not just a possibility…it is definite! If we have faith, we will move mountains! I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to move some mountains!
