“Have faith in God. Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him.” (Mark 11:23, ESV)
Having faith in God places all things in His hands while we act on His promises, today. It says, “I trust you, God, for every outcome as I pursue your purposes in the daily routine of my life.” Praying to move mountains is not really about moving mountains, but knowing that my Father will not allow anything to stand in the way of His purposes through our lives. So, we can pray knowing that God will get us through to the other side of the mountain.
You also need to know, though, that God’s interventive miracles don’t come scheduled on our Outlook calendar. Jesus’ promise that we will move mountains simply states that our prayers WILL be answered, but doesn’t say WHEN they will. This is a huge transformative truth! It means that we need to learn to sow seed into our prayer life in such a way where we give God time to bring the harvest. We need to learn that our prayer time table may be different than the Lord’s. We’re on a journey; and every prayer we pray partners with God for an outcome anywhere on our timeline.
This is where we learn to pray selfless prayers. This is where we learn to pray with an entire life in mind. God is not interested in performing momentary tricks, but partnering with you to manifest a divine lifelong story. And this goes for how we pray for others, as well, some prayers are meant to be answered in the moment, and others are working out things we can’t imagine.
So, be bold in your prayers, and live for your entire journey!
