Jesus said, "If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you can say to a mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."
Two-thousand years ago, nobody was moving mountains, and impossible was a concept understood by all. Even in the twenty-first century, telling people they can move mountains is an extremely large stretch.
Why would Jesus tell his disciples that nothing is impossible?
Jesus was saying that the envelope of possibility is infintely large, and the likelihood of encountering absolute limits is infinitesimally small.
He wanted them to understand that there are no limits. There are only limiting beliefs.
Although the envelope of possibility is exceedingly large, it is equally true on a personal level the envelope of possibility is only as big as you believe it to be.
Jesus was talking about the envelope of possibility, and he made it clear our beliefs determine the size of that envelope.
Possibilty is a dynamic thing that changes with our beliefs.
We increase the envelope of possibility by pushing our limits every day.
Jesus made it clear we all have the potential to move the moutains, and what was impossible yesterday is possible today if we get our beliefs right.
Moving mountains is not just for a select few. It's for everyone who sheds their limiting beliefs.
Moving mountains is not something you do once in a lifetime. It's something you do every day.
In Mark 11:23-24, Jesus outlined the Mountain Moving Cascade.
If anyone says to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and has no doubt in his heart but believes that it will happen, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
Jesus made it clear you are to speak to the mountains in your life.
If you want to move mountains, you must speak to them and call them out by name. You must get specific about which mountain needs to move, and then you must move forward without doubt in your heart.
Doubt is a destroyer of dreams, and mountains never move in the presence of doubt. More dreams have been destroyed by doubt than will ever be destroyed by failure.
Moving mountains is not religious magic. It's much more than "name it and claim it". It's simply the way things work when you get in agreement with God about who you are and what you can do with his help.
God is not a supernatural vending machine waiting to dispense miracles when you "name it and claim it." You do not serve a concierge God that tends to your every whim, and whenever you want something, you pull on the lever of faith to get what you want. That's not the way things work.
On the other hand, Jesus made it clear that God takes a personal interest in your daily life to the point He knows the number of hairs on your head, and He is so involved in your world, that a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his knowledge.
In Mark 11:23-24 Jesus tells us we have the possiblity of moving moutains, but there is a cascade of things that need to happen for the mountain to move.
First, you must speak to the mountain. You must call it out by name. You can't hit a target you don't see, and you can't go to a destination you don't have. You must clearly put a name on the mountain you want to move. Naming it does not make it move, but it starts the mountain moving casade and if you persist, the mountain will move.
Mountains are things holding you back and keeping you from being all that God intends for you to be. God wants your mountains to move even more than you do, but for them to move, you first must do your part. You must speak to the mountains in your life.
Second, you must get rid of doubt. Don't waste your time speaking to the mountains if you have doubt in your heart. Doubt is a deal breaker in the mountain moving business. You must suspend your disbelief and place your trust in God for your mountains to move. When you suspend your disbelief, you get out of the way and stop limiting God. Faith is like a mighty river dammed up by unbelief, and when you suspend your disbelief and get out of the way, your mountains start to move.
Third, you must ask God which mountains need to move.
If you are like me, there are dozens of mountains in your life. Some of those mountains don't need to move. You can still become all you are meant to be while those mountains remain exactly where they are. Other mountains block your pasage, and those mountains must be moved.
When you get in agreement with God about who you are and what you can do with his help, it becomes clear which mountains must move. Once you know which mountains need to be moved, you can speak to those mountains and send them on their way.
Fourth, you must believe the mountain will move. The only way for your mountains to move is for you to expect them to move. You don't get what you want in life, you get what you expect. That's why Jesus said, "As you believe, so shall it be done unto you." Jesus came to change your expectations about who you are and what you can do with God's help. When you expect your mountains to move, you get out your shovels and start digging. You start up your earth moving equipment, and your mountains begin to move.
Fifth, you not only believe your mountain is going to move, you act like it has already happened. You receive it into your life as an accomplished fact. Even though the mountain is still sitting there, as far as you are concerned, the mountain is history. Sooner is better than later, but in your mind the mountain is gone.
Sixth, you achieve your mountain moving goal by working like everything depends on you, and trusting like everything depends on God. You do your part so God can do his.
Moving mountains is not magic. It's mainly hard work mixed with endless persistence.
It's time to move the mountains of difficulty out of your life and to become all you can be.
It's time to speak to the mountains in your life and to cast them into the sea.
When you are willing to do whatever it takes, it's not long before your dreams start to come true. You become an unstoppable, consistently positive, endlessly persistent doer of dreams.
Real magic happens when you start believing once again. You start dreaming big and believing big. You go to the dream factory, pick out a shiny new dream and start working on it. Before long, you become part of something great. You are guilty of living your dreams.

Affirmations give you the power to change what is in your heart. Affirmations do more than change the way you think; they also change the way you feel.
