One can travel at a speed of a rocket, or move as slowly as a tortoise. There would have been some movement, nevertheless. The laws of nature are that from one place to another, there would have been some change in space and time. Everything that one does in this world makes a difference.
“Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. How long will you lie there, you sluggard? When will you get up from your sleep?

The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!” He replied, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you” (Luke 17:5-6 NIV).
The definition of faith is as important as it frees humanity from all troubles. The limitations are in not knowing what faith entails.

Generally, ordinary people assume faith to mean the ability to blindly achieve things, without even planning.
