Faith, The Lifestyle of Saints
Asking In Faith
This scripture Mark 11:24 is usually isolated from it's pretext and has become one of the most promoted scriptures in Christendom in regards to faith. Faith has a part A and a part B, faith need works, and God's works need a God faith. The preposition of faith is that it requires the objective of God's Will and just reading Mark 11:24, one will lose that focus because we are so up close on the subject that we miss it.
Human condition dictates that we focus of what pleases our self-interest. The purpose of prayer is to seek the Will of God for our lives, so if we are not interested what God want's, why pray? Jesus demonstrated the power of prayer and His authority when He cursed the fig tree. After the disciples recognized the results, He clued them to the fact that they could move mountains with some work and this power was not restricted to Kings and Queens, but to open to believers.
The qualification Jesus gave in Mark 11:24 is contained in these elements desire, petition, belief and possession. Upon building the Kingdom of God everything that Jesus talked about revolved around doing the will of the Father. When we take things out of context then we can make them personal and they lose the focus.
Our faith in God has to be tested with works for God, no works-no faith, no faith-no works of God.
And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots. And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away. And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
God with us, Immanuel (Isaiah 7:14); we thank You for the belief for our work in You. We praise You for the passion of possession of our faith in You. We declare and decree blessings upon those who work with Your faith to have faith in You, so that our desire sponsor our belief in that what we petition we do for the Will of God in our lives. Now, for the sake of the Kingdom and for the Glory of God, we petition, with an anointing in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, Amen.
