    "What Happens When Our Mountains Don't Move"
    Mark 11:20-26; Hebrews 12
    -If mountains aren't moving, we need to ask ourselves the question, are we having faith? Are we walking in love? Faith works by love.

    - Many times our mountains aren't moving is because we are not speaking to it.
    - Once we say something we need to believe what we say.
    - Once we believe a thing, that thing becomes settled in us
    - We need to acknowledge the sin that is in our life.
    - We need to acknowledge that God's will is sovereign.
    - Could be that God has something better for us that we are not ready to receive.
