“And Jesus said, Truly I tell you, 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.” Whoa.. I did it! I actually moved a mountain and put it down somewhere else! All it took was a small amount of faith just like Jesus said! Oh gimme a break. That’s not what that scripture actually means. Oh.. I thought it was pretty straightforward. It’s not talking about moving actual mountains. It’s about overcoming problems in your life. If you have faith, then God can help you through difficult circumstances. Don’t you still need a lot of money for that Africa mission trip you’re going on? Well yeah, but we’re believing God that He’ll provide for us. But you’re supposed to be leaving tomorrow, right? Um yeah, but that’s ok, God will make a way. God, I pray in faith that You will work a miracle in Jim’s life. I ask that You would send all the money he needs right now so that he can go to do Your will in Africa. I ask this in the name of Jesus, amen. I appreciate your prayers brother, thank you. But you know, that’s just not how God works. But Jesus said we can ask Him for anything and He will give it. I think He even said it a few times.. Well it just doesn’t work like that. Look! You see, God usually uses *people* to do His will on earth. But look! For instance, if you’re in need, then God can speak to someone near you so that they can provide a miracle for you. When did Jesus say that? Hi Katie! Jim, I’m glad I caught you! I know you’re going away tomorrow, so I wanted to give you this. It’s twenty dollars to help pay for your trip. I know it’s not much, but I felt the Lord leading me. Praise God, thank you so much Katie! God bless Jim, I gotta go! See, now that’s how God answers prayer! How, by making His miracles so vague and ambiguous that no one can actually tell the difference? Any outsider would think you’re simply relying on other people’s good will and then calling that a miracle. Oh no, it’s because I had a dream last week that someone would give me twenty dollars for the trip! Praise God! God is such a miracle working God, thank you Jesus! God is so good.
