- Youngs Literal Bible
17:20 Because of your unbelief - Because in this particular they had not faith. If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed - That is, the least measure of it. But it is certain, the faith which is here spoken of does not always imply saving faith. Many have had it who thereby cast out devils, and yet will at last have their portion with them. It is only a supernatural persuasion given a man, that God will work thus by him at that hour. Now, though I have all this faith so as to remove mountains, yet if I have not the faith which worketh by love, I am nothing. To remove mountains was a proverbial phrase among the Jews, and is still retained in their writings, to express a thing which is very difficult, and to appearance impossible. #Matt 21:21|; Luke 17:6.
Mt 17:20 This mountain. Lofty Hermon, in plain sight. Nothing shall be impossible unto you. Upon the condition of perfect faith. Compare Heb 11:1-40. Faith in Christ, faith exercised in fasting and prayer, are the conditions of power.

We need faith to overcome mountainlike obstacles that interfere with our spiritual progress and to cope with difficulties. We should always work on strengthening our faith in Jehovah God and his promises.

Life is good when the love of god is with us that we must stand fast on our integrity and indeed will accept what we need

Faith as a mustard seed,the little faith must be put to action, and its gonna grow, if we have a huge faith as a mountain and not put it in action its as gud as nothing.so that little faith we have lets put it to use and it will produce remarkble results.

Faith is the substance of things hope for and evidence of things not seen. Areas where we need faith can be grouped into Physical and spiritual.For somebody to do exploit in life, he needs faith. For somebody to perform miracles, set the captive free, conduct deliverance service s , receive his healing, even praying to God, he needs faith. For somebody to make it to the end, he needs faith. That is the reason why bible says without faith, it is impossible to please God.

When we believe that He is and able, then that becomes the roots of our fruitful faith.faith in faith is fruitless, so is faith in anything else apart from Him.

Yes the Lord is good he can move what ever you want

To have faith to move a mountain is beyond faith. It in a knowing without one synapse nerve impulse of doubt.

This is one of my fsvorite verses!! It has always appealed to me, because I ALWAYS thought it would be cool to move a mountain.

Faith is a currency in time, used to buy that which exists in eternity.
