Mark 11:22-23

Mark 11:22-23 “Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. “I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself in the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him.”

       “Have faith in God.” It is a simple statement, yet there are times when it seems so hard. When you are going through the storm and the mountain is in front of you it can be hard to put your faith in God. All your circumstances tell you one thing, but God’s Word speaks something different.
       These are the times when it is most important to believe in the promises of God. You see, Jesus never said you would have an easy life. He never said that when we choose Him, life would get simple. It is definitely better and we can find hope in Him, but He assures us that in this world we will face trials.
       There will be mountains that we have to face, but He also tells us how to face them. He gives us a way through. Jesus tells us that if we say to the mountain ‘Go throw yourself in the sea,’ and have no doubts, it will happen. How’s that for a promise?
       If we have faith in God there is nothing that can stop us. Troubles will come, you can count on it; there will be things that stand before you, but God is bigger than all of them. Proverbs says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding.
Put your faith in God and nothing will be able to block your path. If anything tries, speak to it and it will move.
