From the Pastor’s Pen

Final Thoughts on Mark 11:23-24

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.  Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.                  NKJV

The Lord Jesus Christ said, “Whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you will receive them, and you will have them.”  We are to believe that we have received—this very moment.  It is natural to want some evidence that our request is granted before we believe, but when we “live by faith” (II Cor. 5:7), we need no evidence other than God’s Word.  He has spoken, and in harmony with our faith it will be done.  We will see because we have believed and true faith will sustain us in the most trying times.  Faith that believes it will see, will keep us from becoming discouraged.  We will laugh at seemingly impossible situations while we watch with delight to see how God is going to move the mountain that bars our way.

It is in these places of severe testing, with no human way out of our difficulty that our faith grows and is strengthened.  Lift up your head and begin praising God right now for the deliverance that is on its way to you.                       From Life of Praise

Have we come to the point where we have met God in His everlasting now?            A.B. Simpson
