Without doubting

Posted on Posted in Expectations, Faith, Promises

                                           … in faith in Him!

 
So Jesus answered and said to them,
      “Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you,
      whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea’,
      and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things
      he says will be done
, he will have whatever he says.
      Mark 11:22-23

Jesus told us that if we have faith in God,
and say to the mountain (the problem or adversity we are facing)
‘be removed and be cast into the sea’
… we will have what we say!
However Jesus also said there is a condition,
‘not doubting in your heart,
but believing those things we say will be done’
.

Why did Jesus tell us
… ‘to not doubt in our heart, but believe those things we say’?

      Jesus was telling us to do what God does when He acts in faith.
      What is it that God does?
      God sees what He says as manifesting!
      God pictures what He speaks in faith, as DONE!
      … That is what happened to that fig tree!
      In other words, it is not just believing God’s Word,
      … but it is seeing what you believe as manifest!
      God’s Word does not make the picture, your faith does,
      … and it is that picture, in faith in Him, that He manifests!

That is what Jesus also said to His disciples,
      Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?” Then He arose
      and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm.
      Matt 8:26

They pictured themselves as drowning … Jesus saw peace!
What picture from God’s Word are you putting your faith in?
