Mark 11:20-25 In the morning, as they went along, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots. Peter remembered and said to Jesus, “Rabbi, look! The fig tree you cursed has withered!”
“Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”
What is Jesus saying to us in these Scriptures?
- Have Faith
- Believe and Receive
- forgive sins
When you hold something against someone, even though God has heard your prayers if you aren’t forgiving someone, your prayers could be delayed or may not get answers. But if we take the choke hold of unforgiveness away, we can be open-hearted towards that person, forgiving their actions and letting it go. That’s what following Christ is all about, loving the unloveable and facing the will of God in all circumstances.
Stay focused on Christ, He will give you the strength to see things through his eyes and teach you His ways. Why not ask Him for this gift of mercy?
Have Faith, believe and you will receive!
