TO THE BIBLE Mark 11:23
“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.”
One day, as Jesus and His disciples were returning to Jerusalem from Bethany, He sighted a fig tree in the distance, and being hungry, He
drew close to it, expecting to find some figs to eat. When He got to the tree, however, there were no figs because it wasn’t yet the season for figs. Then Jesus spoke to the fig tree in the hearing of His disciples; He said, “…No one shall ever eat figs from you again…” (Mark 11:14 GNB).
It so happened that they passed through that same route the next day, and Peter, remembering what had transpired the previous day, said to the Lord, “…Teacher, look! The tree you put a curse on has dried up” (Mark 11:21 CEV). Jesus responded by telling Peter (and the other disciples) to have the God-kind of faith (Mark 11:22). What did He mean by the God-kind of faith?
The God-kind of faith is the faith that believes in the heart and speaks accordingly. This is what Jesus taught in our opening verse. By His statement, Jesus wasn’t teaching about mountains or problems, but about the power of the spoken word—the Word in your mouth. We
can therefore conclude that the key point in Mark 11:23 is: “You shall have what you say!” Your words would certainly come to pass when you speak in faith. There’s power in your mouth!
8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Dear heavenly Father, thank you for giving me the ability to create
whatever I desire through my faith-filled words. I declare that I walk
in divine health, protection, peace and prosperity, and supernatural
success, in the Name of Jesus. Amen!
