“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 11:23).Jesus said it is possible for us to move the mountain before us, but it is accomplished only by faith! He gives the glorious promise that whatever we desire, when we pray and believe, we will receive. Can you believe it?
DO YOU REALLY BELIEVE?
In my years in ministry, I have observed that very few Christians believe that such a supernatural work can occur. In fact, you may say, “I have tried this and it didn’t work for me. I prayed in faith and I believed but my prayer wasn’t answered.”
I remember a new pastor coming to me confessing his addiction to pornography. This young man loved God and loved his wife, and they enjoyed a good marriage. But he got hooked on pornography and was unable to shake himself loose from it. It began to rob him of all his spiritual strength, and even though he prayed earnestly, he had not been delivered.
FULLNESS IN CHRIST
This young man’s problem was not just an addiction but unbelief. He did not accept that God answers prayer, and his unbelief stood before him like a looming mountain, impassable and immovable. And it was severely hindering the fullness that was his in Christ.
The good news is that this pastor came into a better understanding of how to exercise his faith, he weathered his storm, and he came into a wonderful place of victory in the Lord.
