Faith That Moves Mountains: A Journey into the Unseen

Faith is a profoundly powerful force.

It is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things unseen (Hebrews 11:1). As believers, we are continually called to walk by faith, not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7). But what does it mean to have faith that moves mountains? Let's delve into the Hebrew roots of these words to gain deeper insight.

The Hebrew Context

In Hebrew, the word for 'move' is "Zaz," which signifies 'to move, agitate, or stir up.' On the other hand, the term for 'mountain' is "Har," often symbolizing a problem or obstacle. Therefore, when we speak of faith that moves mountains, we're talking about faith that stirs up and overcomes seemingly insurmountable obstacles.

Faith That Moves

Faith is more than just a belief—it's an active trust in God's promises, a steadfast confidence in His divine power and love. This active trust is what enables us to 'move,' to stir up situations, and to change circumstances that seem impossible.

The book of Matthew provides a clear illustration of this. In Matthew 17:20, Jesus says, "Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." Here, Jesus isn't speaking of physical mountains but metaphorical ones—challenges, trials, or obstacles that seem overwhelming.

Mountains in Our Lives

We all face 'mountains' in our lives—problems that seem too large to overcome, obstacles that block our path, and situations that appear hopeless. These mountains can take various forms, such as illness, financial difficulties, broken relationships, or personal struggles.

However, these mountains aren't meant to discourage us. Instead, they're opportunities for us to exercise our faith, to trust in God's power, and to witness His miraculous work in our lives.

Moving The Mountains

So, how do we move mountains with our faith? First, we must believe in God's promises. We must trust that He is who He says He is, and He will do what He says He will do. This belief isn't based on our feelings or circumstances but on God's unchanging character and His infallible Word.

Secondly, we must pray with faith. Mark 11:24 says, "Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours." Prayer is our communication line with God, where we present our requests and express our faith in His ability to answer.

Finally, we must act in faith. James 2:26 reminds us that "faith without works is dead." Our actions should reflect our faith in God. When we act according to God's Word, despite what our circumstances look like, we demonstrate our faith in Him.

Let’s “Zaz” Move

Having faith that moves mountains isn't about having enough faith to perform miracles. It's about having even a small amount of faith in a big God who performs miracles. It's about trusting God to overcome the mountains in our lives, no matter how big they seem.

So, let's choose to exercise our faith today. Let's trust God to move our mountains, stir up our situations, and make the impossible possible. After all, we serve a God who specializes in moving mountains.
