Most of us wake up in the morning, have breakfast, go to work or look after the kids, eat dinner, go to bed and rinse & repeat the next day.
BOOM – here comes the word of God to rescue us from this is a tragic pattern that keeps us stuck in the smallness of the hamster wheel of life
There is so much richness contained in the promises that God has given us in the Bible. Not only that, we’re shown exactly how to bring those promises into our everyday life and live abundantly (John 10:10)
We get to have faith in God and let ourselves be transformed by the renewing of our minds – believing the Truth He is inviting us to live out.
Jesus said, “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea!’ and does not doubt in his heart [in God’s unlimited power], but believes that what he says is going to take place, it will be done for him [in accordance with God’s will].”
Mark 11:23 (Amp)
Let’s unpack this amazing guidance
1. Speak it out loud
I assure you and most solemnly say to you, whoever says to this mountain
There are so many examples in the Bible of how both God and people spoke and things came into existence. In Genesis, we see that God created the world by speaking it into being. Jesus gave us the ability to do the same.
When you hear the Truth of the word of God coming out of your own mouth, it creates a deep faith and conviction that wells up on the inside of you. That’s something that no whispering or ‘thinking’ will ever do.
Speak the Truth of the Word of God!
2. No doubt and just believe.
…does not doubt in his heart [in God’s unlimited power], but believes that what he says is going to take place…
The good thing is that the more you speak the Word out loud, the more your faith builds – and that creates no room for doubt. (Rom 10:17)
It’s literally as if the Truth sets you free from doubt and you no longer let it have a voice.
3. Have faith in God
…it will be done for him [in accordance with God’s will].
God knows WAY more about the pathway of your life than you do, and that’s a good thing. This means that He can bring His amazing plans to pass as you come into agreement with the Truth.
Have faith in God – He’s got you and He’s planning truly astounding good on your behalf.
