20 And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.
21 And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away. 22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. 23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. 24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
The disciples of Jesus were surprised that the simple words Jesus spoke to the fig tree the day before happened exactly as Jesus said. Jesus took the opportunity to teach them a deep spiritual truth as He had always done. He taught them the importance of faith. Faith is the key.
It takes faith to believe God for everything and it takes faith to receive the things you ask of God. Very often we talk about faith more than acting upon it. Possessing the gates of our enemies, as well as getting into what God has in store for us requires that we demonstrate faith in the God who made the promise.
With the promise in our hearts, we go on to make declarations and speak to the situations that confront us. Faith a is spiritual language and things in the spirit have no choice than to obey, especially when we decree things that align with God’s plans and purposes – things that will bring glory to His name. Start walking and living by faith and all things shall be yours in the name of Jesus.
1. Give praise to the God who is at the other end of every faith you exercise in Him. Faith is never in vain.
2. Pray for grace to practice the disciplines that will boost your faith in God
3. Father please lead me by Your Spirit so I can build my faith in you.
I declare in the name of Jesus that I walk by faith and not by sight. I exercise faith right now concerning any negative situation that confronts me. I rebuke every spirit of doubt working against me. I resist it in the name of Jesus. I speak to every mountain in my life move and be cast into the sea in the name of Jesus. I speak divine alignment to the situations and circumstances of my life, and I receive my breakthroughs in the name of Jesus.
