HAVE FAITH IN GOD
Brothers, it is God who has delivered you through every trial, and every tribulation that you have had in your life, while upon this earth. He loves us and delivers us every time until that last time, and then He takes us home to be with him forever. As you meditate on this truth, recall those times that he delivered you before you were saved, yes even when we were lost He loved us. He loves us so much that he sent his only begotten Son to die in our place that we should never know death if we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, and the only way to Heaven.
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.
Brothers, we are shown here that God desires that we produce fruit in this life. He required even the fruit trees which He created, to produce fruit for mans body, that his flesh might receive nourishment when he is weak and in need. God will give us chance after chance to produce fruit, and when we fail time after time, He will cut us off as He did this fig tree.
Mark 11:15 And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves;
Mark 11:16 And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple.
Mark 11:17 And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.
Mark 11:18 And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine.
We as children of God are to be continuously in prayer for our brothers in Christ Jesus and for the lost of this world, for the time of His appearing is at hand.
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
Mark 11:22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
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.
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.
Mark 11:26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.
Brothers, we are told here, by Jesus himself, that if we have faith in God we can say to the mountains which come into our lives, be removed and cast into the sea. If we do not doubt in our heart, but believe that those things we say shall come to pass; then we shall have what ever we speak.
We are to:
Brothers, we are to walk in forgiveness. We are to have faith in God, and speak to our mountains. We are to have no doubt in our hearts and they shall be cast into the sea. We are to believe what we speak and it shall come to pass. We will receive what we speak.
Please know that we are made in the image of God. in Genesis 1 God said, "Let's make man in our image." He spoke everything into existence verbally by commanding that it would be.
God expects us to believe in our hearts what we speak and we shall receive whatever we speak. Do you understand this great truth. If we believe, then we receive whatever we pray for. It took me a long time to get this, and I am trying to help you to get this truth.
Let's say that you are having pain in your back. You stand and pray that this pain be taken from you. You have then made your request to God. You are then to thank him for your healing, and praise him for that healing, thanking Jesus for nailing that curse of pain to the cross, by his stripes we were healed. Now, here comes the time for your faith and believing to be exercised. Even though after your prayer you feel no deferent you are to continue to thank Him for that healing with praise and thanksgiving. Every time that you feel a recurring pain in your back, just say. My Lord Jesus has healed me of this, I received that healing and I walk in that healing. Praise God.
Remember my brothers we walk by faith not by sight. The world walks by what they see, but not us, we are faith people. Our faith in God's Holy Word and His truth by grace through faith are we saved. Our flesh was crucified on the cross with Jesus, we were baptized in Jesus and are now spirit, not flesh. The old man flesh is dead and we are a new creature in Christ Jesus.
Walk in spirit and truth by faith not by what you see or fill. For we have overcome all of these things by our faith in Jesus and God the Father. Praise God!
God Bless you my brothers,
