In the morning, as they went along, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots. 21 Peter remembered and said to Jesus, “Rabbi, look! The fig tree you cursed has withered!” “Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. – Mark 11:20-24
Day 2 Jesus and His disciples were on their way back to Jerusalem when the disciples saw the withered fig🥀 tree that Jesus cursed and they were amazed. Jesus took this opportunity to teach the disciples about faith. The mountain is an obstacle that people face to get from one side to the other.⛰️ For many if us we may be Facing a mountain 🏔️ahead of us, a challenge that seems so big that it will never move. The amazing thing is that Jesus says we only need faith as small as a mustard seed. The mustard see is only 1-2 millimeters in diameter. That’s tiny! And once planted the Mustard tree grows to about 6 meters high. 🌳
First of all, if you have a seed as small as a mustard seed and plant it in Jesus it can grow to an even bigger faith. Second, it only takes a mustard seed faith🙏🏽 to move the mountain.🗻 What ever obstacle you are facing, hat ever challenge that seems huge, plant that faith in Jesus and He will move your mountain. Third, the presence of mountains🏞️🌄 is guaranteed just as the presence of challenges and obstacles are present. But the presence of mountains gives us the opportunity to plant our mustard seed sized faith in Jesus and to watch it grow into a mustard tree as our mountains are moved. T’s and C’s apply. # We love to quote this scripture about faith, but what Jesus adds next is also very important. He adds: And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.” – Mark 11:26.
We need to see the whole picture when in comes to the promises of God. You see in order for God to hear our prayers we need to be in right standing with Him. This means all our sins to be forgiven. For our sins to be forgiven we need to forgive others. That is difficult. For our mountains to be moved we need to forgive others. There may be people in your life right now that you need to forgive. You see forgiveness not only sets the other person free, but it also sets you free from anger, hurt and bitterness. 🙌🏽Write their names down and ask God to help you forgive them. 🙌🏽 Memory verse Choose a memory verse and put it up as your status to encourage others during this lock down.
