Mark 11:22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
Mark 11:23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
Faith in God the father and Jesus his son gives the Christian power. If you have enough faith, these verses are literal. If you doubt not, you could speak to a real mountain and it would be cast into the sea.
Unfortunately, none of us have that much faith. We have to interpret the verse figuratively. Whatever obstacles are in your path, if you believe and have faith, God will move them aside.
This aspect of faith can help you get through your daily struggles. God expects us to work, but he also wants to help us. We have to take things far enough so that we and everyone else can see that it’s God that’s doing the real work.
