Full Assurance In The Heart – Day 44

June 4, 2011

22 So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. 23 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

Many times, we can read these passages of scripture and we can place our focus on what we are to do, and miss what truly moves the mountains in our life.  When Jesus instructed the disciples regarding the kind of faith that moves mountains, He told them something key that would cause the impossible to be made possible.   He said, “Have faith in God.”

He never intended our focus to be on our ability to speak the word, although we should speak His word boldly in the midst of our circumstance.  He never intended the focus to be on our ability to believe.  His intended focus was on us believing in the integrity and faithfulness of God.  Jesus declared that if you believe in God and in the integrity of His word and the greatness of His power, you can speak confidently to the mountains and they must move, because nothing is impossible with God.

As you forge ahead today, place your focus upon the greatness of God and His unending love for you.  Take time to be in His presence and bask in the goodness of His mercy and grace.  As you do, your faith and confidence will arise to new heights and the mountains that surround you will no longer be the focus of your life.   Then the words you speak will come from a heart that believes, as they unleash the confident assurance that you have in the power of a God who is able to move the mountains that stand in your way.

The mountains melt like wax in the presence of the Lord, in the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.

Psalms 97:5
