… moves mountains!
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.
Jesus was teaching us
… not just what faith can do,
… and not just what we need to say,
but also what we need to do for faith to work.
Faith is not the confession of God’s promises,
… is not the confession of what you believe God can do,
… nor the confession of what you want God to do for you.
Faith is the confession of what you believe,
… of what you know God has prepared for you,
… of what you know God has already done,
and is doing for you.
Jesus very specifically said …
If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes
But what is believing?
Simply this, that
… what God said is what you expect!
… without faith it is impossible to please Him,
for he who comes to God must believe that He is,
and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
