'HAVE FAITH IN GOD'
Mark 11:11 And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and when he had looked round about upon all things, and now the eventide was come, he went out unto Bethany with the twelve.
Mark 11:12 And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:
Mark 11:13 And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet.
Mark 11:14 And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.
Jesus was hungry when he saw a fig tree off in the distance, as he and his disciples were walking to Jerusalem. But, when they arrived at the tree it had only leaves and no fruit for Jesus to eat. Jesus said to the tree from now on and forever no man shall eat your fruit. He had just told the tree to die and to never bear fruit again forever.
Mark 11:19 And when even was come, he went out of the city.
Mark 11:20 And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.
Mark 11:21 And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.
Mark 11:22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
Brothers, Jesus was teaching his disciples and us a lesson here. We are to have FAITH IN GOD! We can do nothing of ourselves, but God can do all things in our lives, if only we will have faith in Him.
Mark 11:23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
Brothers, we are to have faith in God. It is God who does the work, not you and I. We are to have the faith in God and let our faith in his promises to us do the work. There is no mountain in our lives which can not be cast into the sea. We only need to exercise our faith and believe God's word and what so ever we say will come to pass.
Do you see here that the fig tree did not die immediately when Jesus spoke to it. But, rather the next day as they passed by the fig tree had died and withered away. Jesus was walking in faith that God would do the work because of the word which Jesus had spoke to the tree.
We too are to HAVE FAITH IN GOD and not doubt when that word, that we speak by faith, does not happen immediately before our eyes. But, we are to know in our hearts that it is done. We can just smile and walk on by knowing that that mountain is cast into the sea. It is gone from our lives, it is done, PERIOD! End of discussion. Begin praising God, and thanking him, for all of your blessings.
Mark 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
Mark 11:25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
Brothers, forgiveness is required of us. Do not forget to walk in forgiveness. For through our forgiveness we are forgiven. Praise God!
Mark 11:26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.
Brothers, walk in faith, have not doubt, but rather believe that what we speak, and what we pray shall come to pass. Have Faith In God! Wait in faith having no doubt. If doubt arises it is just the devil trying to still your faith. Say 'devil the Word of God tells me that you are a liar, and that the truth is not in you', 'I am a child of God and his word does the work in my life, I am blessed and not cursed. You are the cursed one, so go on back to Hell where God sent you, for you have no place in my life. PRAISE GOD'!
SPEAK ONLY GOOD WORDS INTO YOUR LIFE, AND WALK IN FAITH!
God Bless you my brothers,
