Mark 11:23-24

I tell you the truth if anyone says to this mountain, “Go, throw yourself into the sea,” and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

Herod literally had a mountain moved…

“He wanted to build a fortress palace in Israel that could be seen from Jerusalem and the surrounding areas so that the Jews never forgot he was always watching. He also wanted to be sure it was the absolutely tallest thing in the surrounding landscape. So, he narrowed his building site down to two hills (small mountains) which were near each other. Then, he simply used forced labor to pare the top off one to add to the top of the other to make it bigger. One pail full of dirt and rocks at a time. He literally moved a mountain”

Jesus was probably referring to Herod’s mountain when he encouraged his followers that God would move mountains for them if they had faith! Their God would be able to accomplish much more than earthly power could produce, more than they could ever imagine.

My prayer for the prodigal is that they would ask for big things; that there would be no doubt of God’s power to move the mountains in their life.
