We can't always see how things are possible in the natural. We focus on the mountain right in front of us and it seems unmovable. Our vision is distorted. 

He replied, "Because you have so little faith. 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.  -Matthew 17:20 (NIV)

Recently I had to make a plane at an airport 2 1/2 hours away. When I planned the trip everything seemed right, but the day we were leaving, suddenly it was all wrong. I didn't consider several factors like the time change (losing an hour), Atlanta traffic, and airport security. I began to freak out. I was confident we were going to miss the plane. Even though I prayed, I was doubting God. 

We made it with zero traffic in Atlanta, zero lines at the airport, and the plane was delayed by 20 minutes, but back on time when we got to the gate. That's unheard of. I stood there and laughed in awe of God. 

Perspective changes everything and if we choose to view life through God's eyes and trust Him to provide, our problems won't seem so big. As the plane took off and the ground where we once stood was growing smaller, I began to see through God's eyes. It's time for us to overcome the mountains we are facing by having faith in the One who can move them.
