Hey! My Name is Ella, and I’m from Nambour Christian College, Sunshine Coast

Matthew 21:21: “Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done.”

The idea that mountains can be thrown into the sea sounds impossible. Mountains are so big that your words would just rebound off the surface. Yet, Jesus tells us that by having faith and not doubting, that mountain will throw itself into the sea. Words by themselves can’t do the impossible, they can hit the mountain but won’t cause it to be in the sea. However, with faith attached, those words can do the impossible. Powerful prayers aren’t prayers that use big words rather, they are prayers with faith attached to them. I’m not sure what your “mountain” is, maybe it’s your friend who you’ve deemed too far away from God, but start praying powerful prayers over your situation. Pray with words of faith, confidence and without doubt. Matthew 21:21 is a promise from God, that with faith, the impossible can be done. 

Prayer: Dear Jesus, I thank you for knowing my heart. Help me to never speak void words that echo, but faith filled words that can do the impossible. I thank you that when I am faced with the impossible, I will pray faith filled words over my situation or mountain that’s in front of me. Amen.
