"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.'" ESV
Jesus did not say to pray to Him when we are up against a mountain and ask Him to move it for us. He didn't say to pray and just wait to see if the mountain moves. He said if we use our faith, even a little tiny part of it, we will be able to move the mountain ourselves wherever it needs to go. That means putting our own action into our prayers and the Lord will make sure we succeed.
Lord, forgive us for expecting You to move our mountains while we sit and just hope You will do something. We have sinned against You in thinking You are an order department to bark out our orders to You to fix whatever is messed up in our lives. Fill us with Your power, with faith from the reading and hearing of Your Word, so that we will move mountains. In Your name we pray, Amen.
