Receiving From God

November 14, 2018

“Whoever says…and does not doubt in his heart…will have whatever he says.” Mk 11:23 NKJV

In order to receive what God promised in His Word, you need to do three things. First, make up your mind. Take hold of His promise and don’t let go. Be tenacious! God responds to a faith that perseveres and a mind that’s made up: “With God all things are possible” (Mt 19:26). Former baseball star Sam Ewing said, “Nothing is as embarrassing as watching someone do something that you said couldn’t be done.” Second, visualize your victory. Before construction starts, the architect already has a picture of the end result in his or her mind. By faith Abraham “saw” his children; he counted them every time he looked up at the stars (See Ge 15:5). Use your memory to replay past victories, and your imagination to pre-play future ones. That’s what David did when he slew Goliath. Look your giant squarely in the face and declare, “You’re coming down in the name of the Lord.” Third, speak to your situation. Jesus said: “Whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and…cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt…but believes that those things he said will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Notice, Jesus used the word “believes” once, but referred to what you “say” three times. Could that be because we already know so much about believing, but need to learn more about how to speak in and to our situation? Don’t just talk about your mountain, talk to it! Line up what you say with God’s Word. Make His Word your word, and the mountain will become your servant. It has to—Jesus said so!
