“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.- (Mark 11:23 NKJV)
Sometimes when things are going great, Christians get lazy about the Word and sloppy in their living. Others give up on the Word when things go particularly bad. These people are heading for some nasty bumps along the way.
Please don’t think I’m saying that if you live by the Word you’ll never encounter difficulty, but I am saying that you will overcome the difficulty when you confidently and consistently make the Word your rule.
Never say the Word isn’t working! Always judge your circumstances by God’s infallible Word; do not judge the Word by your circumstances. There are those who reject God’s promises when they don’t see their situations change. If your difficult situation looms bigger in your eyes than the Word, you will fail; but if you keep speaking the Word with faith and patience and act as though you believe it, that mountain standing in your path will eventually move.
Let’s praise God that His Word is true and lasting!
