Matthew 22…21“Truly I tell you,” Jesus replied, “if you have faith and do not doubt, not only will you do what was done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ it will happen. 22If you believe, you will receive”whatever you ask in prayer.
What stipulation does Jesus give there? To have faith and not doubt. If you ‘believe’ is the key phrase or word here. Scripture tells us in that God is not a man that he should lie. Either we believe that or we don’t. If you know someone you believe them when they tell you something. You trust their character and that they are going to do what they said they will do. Same should go with our relationship with Christ Jesus! He said it so therefore it is true! I believe that is why so many times we don’t get answers to our prayers. So many times I hear people ask for prayer but in their hearts they don’t truly believe for the answer they just say it out of habit or to get attention. How do we know that? Because the Word tells us in Luke 6:26 that ‘out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks’ and as soon as they ask for prayer they speak doubt and unbelief or keep talking about how big the problem is but not how big our God is and what He already did for us on Calvary. Everything! He saved us from whatever we need saving from so get to know Him, spend time with Him in His word and your faith will grow! And pray and believe and speak His words to the situation and that mountain will be removed.
