“Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done. And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive” (Matthew 21:21-22 NKJV).
When Jesus spoke these words to His disciples, He was telling them that with God, there are no limits. He was saying they could have whatever things they ask for if they would simply believe.
The only thing that limits what God can and will do in your life is your belief system. It’s just that simple. Your life as it exists right now is a result of what you have believed over the past weeks, months, and years. Therefore, if you want to change your life you must first change what you believe.
The good news is this: God has already given you the ability to control your future and your destiny. If you’ve made Jesus the Lord of your life, then the life you live is not a hit-and-miss experiment. You have been granted access to the things you desire through your ability to believe God. You tap into the limitless miracle power of God by simply having faith, not doubting, and believing the Word of God.
Jesus wanted His disciples to think outside the box, to believe in God for the impossible. He was telling them the only requirement for receiving was their believing. He knew the only obstacle to this kind of believing was the natural mind:
- The natural mind will come up with lots of reasons why “it” can’t happen
- The natural mind will explain precisely why “it” won’t work
- The natural mind will block the supernatural, and limit you to the probable, the logical, and the rational
Whatever it is you are believing for, God has promised in His Word that it can and will happen when you believe. So, create a new life for yourself; be all you were created to be; live your dream by doing what Jesus said to do—believe. After all, believing has no limits.
Confession: Today I set my heart and mind fully on God’s Word and the promises He has made to me. I choose to believe God’s Word is true, and that I will receive those things I ask for in prayer. I have mountain-moving faith.
