“Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him.” (Mark 11:23)
I have been learning a bit these days about the idea of ‘belief’. I always seem to come back to the metaphor about ‘moving the mountain’. Which to me is the idea about believing in your abilities to do something, and I mean really believing in your abilities to accomplish something.
Not sure why the idea of belief is something I am wrapping my head around all the time, maybe because many people cannot believe in their abilties to do that which they set their mind towards. Everything always starts with an ‘idea’ when you boil it all down…just a simple thought in your head (usually with no real substance attached to it). Yet your ability to think something is exactly the key to making it possible.
Just reminding myself why I use a term like ‘belief’ or ‘faith’.
