|Have you ever taken a child shopping for a toy? Sometimes they know exactly what they want, sometimes they jump from one item to the next loving something and then dropping it for the next toy that is shinier or more interesting. With shiny eyes they look at you and say “Please daddy” but you are not sure what they really want.|
The Bible says in Mark 11:23 “Whoever says to this mountain ‘ Be removed and cast into the sea’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says”.
Faith changes us, believing makes us act differently. When we have asked God something it is done! All we have to do is walk into it. We often are just like children asking God for this then changing asking God for that and often we are not dedicated to our prayers. James 1: 6-8 says that a double minded man will receive nothing. Faith changes us not God. God is always the same.
Faith moves God but does not change Him. Faith pleases God but His character stays the same.
We have many mountains before us at Eastcoast but we have Jesus and we must have faith. We must have faith in our personal lives and we must have faith in our corporate body. Nothing will happen without single minded determination to see the will of God unfold in this place.
Leviticus 26: 8 says that five will chase a hundred but a hundred will chase ten thousand. Faith multiplies when it is joined to your brothers and sisters. How strong is your link with your body?
Be very careful in battle not to get separated from your clan. Stand strong against the moves of the devil, but stand as one.
Is there a mountain in your life that you can not move? Believe! Get somebody to stand with you. Bring it to the prayer meeting! Take it to your home-cell! You will see God move on your behalf. Sometimes God is moving us in a process and we can not fight against it. Sometimes God is leading us into the wilderness and He will accomplish His plans. We have to trust Him that He is leading us. He is in the boat with us. You are not alone.
Prayer for this week: Lord Jesus let us fight the good fight together in strength, not double minded but with direction and purpose.
