IAM A Mountain Mover

MARK 11:22-25 NLT Then Jesus said to the disciples, “Have faith in God.  I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart.  I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours.  But when you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too. ”

Jesus said: Have faith in God.  All of our hopes and beliefs gotta be in God.  You can’t just depend on human nature or laws of the universe to work things out.  Put all of your faith in God and nothing else.

I tell you the truth, that some serious emphasis!
When the savior of the world says… I tell you the truth, I definitely want to listen to what he says.
I must really believe it will happen and have No DOUBT in my heart.
Wow.

I know that sometimes when I pray, i throw in the little self handicap. “If it’s possible”  or “May it be your will”  almost to leave a little room just in case my prayer requests don’t get answered.   That little self handicap is enough doubt to quench my faith and beliefs.

When we pray , pray with zero doubts.  Pray and ask for the whole mountain.  Just as easy as it sounds just to speak the prayers and believe, it’s just as easy to prayer and harbor doubts.

I encourage you to have a prayer journal. Next to each prayer item, reserve a space for date and time that prayer was answered.  That expectation and space for answered prayers is a tool to help eliminate any doubt.  And when each prayer get’s answered, celebrate joyfully and share that awesome praise report with others!

Pray with language that you’ve already received the answers to prayer. It’s already done!  Just like when Jesus healed people that were not even in his presence.  When he said it, then it’s already been worked out in heaven and on earth. Speak realities into existence with the power of our faith and words!

As Jesus is teaching us about prayer, he is specific to tell us to clear any accounts with others. Our unforgiveness holds us back from a deeper level of faith and prayer.  Those seeds of unforgiveness can take root in your heart and soul.  Those roots totally sabotage your prayer times, because you can’t get past them.  Please take some time and think about any grudges or past wounds you are holding.  They fester and become places where the lies of the enemy attack you.  Then we end up spending more soul time dwelling on our past and less time on moving mountains.

Friends: with all the crazy things going on today, the world need’s prayer warriors who have no doubts.
God is willing and ready to answer our prayers.
Take some time and search your heart:  Let’s make sure we aren’t holding any grudges and lets go fully into our prayer ministry!
Crimes against humanity are waiting to be thwarted by our prayers
Depressed people who are suicidal can be saved through our prayers
Cancerous and terminally ill people are waiting to receive healing through our prayers
Broken relationships and families can be restored
People to severe bondage and addiction to deathly habits and substances are waiting for deliverance.

It’s our God that provides all the power to do it.

All we do is ask and pray.

Pray and ask God for 100% faith in him.

When we pray, spend time focusing on His greatness, even before we get into the prayer part.  Look at the example of the Lord’s prayer and see what Jesus gave as a model for prayer.

I AM in Awe FOREVER

Psalms 30:12 that I might sing praises to you and not be silent.
O lord my God, I will give you thanks forever!

The song writer ends this Psalm with the statement: sing praises to God, and not be silent, I will give thanks forever.
If I could think of nothing better than to do with my life for the rest of my days on earth…

Be Gratefulsq

Praise God without ending!
Give thanks to God forever!
Just when you think, that we have discovered all there is to know about God… we see some new facet of His greatness.
Do you ever just bring up something awesome that happened in the past, and it’s so good, you just can’t help telling the story over again?
That’s what praising our God is like!

If our focus is on learning to see new perspectives about God, then our eyes will continually be drawn to the beauty of life.
if our focus is on teaching our hearts to praise God in every circumstance, then you will find victory in all circumstances.

If you take the time to go back and read the whole chapter. the psalmist wasn’t exactly in the best of situations.

In the midst of all the bad situations, the main encouragement was to keep on praising God.

Summary of Situations before God intervened
1. Enemies were trying to triumph over him
2. Failing health
3. In the grave of the pit of death
4. Weeping through the night
5. Prideful and thought he didn’t need God

If that short list was an example of how your past week, months years used to be, then take hope. You are not alone.
There is a solution! Praise God, Give Thanks unceasingly.

I AM in need of mercy
I AM in need of God’s Help
I AM Thankful
I AM in Awe of God

And then when we pass into heaven. We will have an eternity to do it all over again!
