Overall critical reception to Move was generally positive. John DiBiase of Jesusfreakhideout gave the album a 4.5/5, commenting that "Move's softer moments never feel sanded down or over-produced to satisfy most daytime radio listeners (like how much of Wherever You Are sounded)," and that "In the end, Move showcases some of the best Third Day has to offer." Christian Paradise was slightly less positive, giving the album a 7.9/10, but noted that it "has a little something for everyone".

Christianmusic review gave the album a 9.5 out of 10, commenting that "Musically, MOVE delivers songs that are rootsy, soulful and riveting, taking full advantage of Third Day’s longstanding rock influence". The reviewer also stated that "For me, what makes this album so special is the unashamed Gospel message and Mac Powell's vocals have never been more passionate".

The album debuted at No. 9 on the Billboard 200, selling about 37,000 copies in its first week (which is disappointing in comparison to Revelation's selling 75,000+ in its first week).[9]
