“And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That 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. Therefore I say unto you, what things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” – Mark 11:22-24
Relocating a physical mountain simply by speaking to it is naturally an impossible task. However, when God is involved; mountains cannot just be relocated simply by speaking, mountains can skip like rams and little hills like lambs at the presence of God. Psalm 114:4.
The natural impossibility of relocating a mountain is a cheap possibility through words of man plus faith in God. It is faith in God that brings God (to whom nothing is impossible) into the situation.
Faith of whosoever will deliver whatsoever!
However, many people like to hear that “we can have anything”. It is important to take note of prayer attitude and the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ. The interest of God was first and premium in the prayer content and the teachings of Jesus Christ. It was all about the kingdom, the kingdom and the kingdom. Matthew 6:9-15
It is important for us to do a self-check; “Am I putting my self-desire above God’s interest”? It takes seeking God and the interest of His kingdom first to broaden the scope of your authority.
When God’s interest becomes your priority; what bows to God will bow to you effortlessly. Therefore, faith is not just developing positive mentality to move your mountains; it is pleasing God to get Him on the scene concerning your situations. When God gets on the scene; mountains get out of the scene!
Remember, faith is not making selfish declaration and proclamation; faith is pleasing God!
