In Mark 11:22 Jesus is telling the disciples to “have Faith in God.” He goes on to tell them that a mountain can be cast into the sea if they believe and not doubt. I’ve always thought this was a wonderful passage, but…. How does anyone believe without any doubt? I can’t think of a time when I have had this strong of faith.
Joyce Meyers will write sometimes at points like this regarding her own life experiences. She put a “life point” comment regarding this passage. She says, “Notice in Mark 11:22 that the first thing Jesus tells us to do is to have faith in God constantly. …There was a time in my life when I had my faith in my faith. I relied on my ability to believe God rather than relying on God Himself….” This note she wrote awoke me to a fact I’ve needed. I have always measured my faith by “my faith”. The thought of measuring faith in God’s dimensions had never crossed my mind. Now that I realize my faith is to be in God’s Faith I can easily see that there is no limit to it. This makes “all things possible” (another promise I’ve struggled knowing how to believe).
I don’t know about you, but this truth absolutely sets my mind free. I have no reason to doubt for when I do I can easily see that doubt has its eyes on me rather than on the One True God I serve. Oh my word—How I love being awakened!
