Mountain Moving Faith.

Mark
11:23-24 (NIV) says

“Truly
I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself
into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that
what they say will happen, it will be done for them. Therefore I
tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have
received it, and it will be yours.”
A
SHORT STORY OF MOUNTAIN MOVING FAITH

A
small congregation in the foothills of the Great Smokies built a new
sanctuary on a piece of land willed to them by a church member. Ten
days before the new church was to open, the local building inspector
informed the pastor that the parking lot was inadequate for the size
of the building. Until the church doubled the size of the parking
lot, they would not be able to use the new sanctuary.

Unfortunately, the church with its undersized parking lot
had used every inch of their land except for the mountain against
which it had been built. In order to build more parking spaces, they
would have to move the mountain out of the back yard.

Undaunted,
the pastor announced the next Sunday morning that he would meet that
evening with all members who had “mountain-moving faith”.
They would hold a prayer session asking God to remove the mountain
from the back yard and to somehow provide enough money to have it
paved and painted before the scheduled opening dedication service the
following week.

At the appointed time, 24 of the
congregation’s 300 members assembled for prayer. They prayed for
nearly three hours. At ten o’clock the pastor said the final “Amen”.
“We’ll open next Sunday as scheduled,” he assured everyone.
“God has never let us down before, and I believe He will be
faithful this time too.”

The next morning as he was
working in his study there came a loud knock at his door. When he
called “come in”, a rough looking construction foreman
appeared, removing his hard hat as he entered.

“Excuse
me, Reverend. I’m from Acme Construction Company over in the next
county. We’re building a huge new shopping mall over there and we
need some fill dirt. Would you be willing to sell us a chunk of that
mountain behind the church? We’ll pay you for the dirt we remove and
pave all the exposed area free of charge, if we can have it right
away. We can’t do anything else until we get the dirt in and allow it
to settle properly.”

The little church was dedicated
the next Sunday as originally planned and there were far more members
with “mountain-moving faith” on opening Sunday than there
had been the previous week!

Remember:
God Is Faithful To Do What He Says
When We Believe!
DO
YOU HAVE MOUNTAIN MOVING FAITH?
