Faith moves mountains (Matthew 17:20)

Faith

Bible Verse:
“Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." (Matthew 17:20)
Meaning:
If you would move mountains to do something, you would make any effort to achieve your aim. When people say that faith can move mountains, they mean that it can achieve a lot.
Origin and Application:
In the Book of Matthew is a story about disciples failing to drive out a demon from a boy. When asked about why they failed, Jesus said to his disciples, “Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."
