The Choice Is Yours

Good Monday Morning.  Here’s Today’s Nugget to chew on:

“The Choice Is Yours”

Mark 11:22-23 King James Version (KJV)

22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.

23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain [problem, situation or circumstance], 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.
Further Thought:  Here we find Jesus telling his disciples they could exercise the same authority he had just used to curse the fig tree [Mark 11:11-14].  Some may ask why did Jesus curse the fig tree.  As the creator of the fig tree, he knew if it had leaves, it should have had figs, but it didn’t.  So, it wasn’t functioning as it was created to function.  Yes, you and I should use this same authority when we have something in our lives that’s not functioning as it was created to function [heart, blood, colon, kidney..].  

Today’s passage reminds me that I can say what I have, or I can have what I say.  I don’t know about you, but I’m no longer going to give life to anything that goes contrary to what God’s Word has said.  No, I’m not denying the existence of problems in my life.  But according to today’s passage, I must speak and use my authority against whatever I’m facing, and Jesus said I shall have it.  Now, the choice is yours.  Will you continue to say what you have and not experience any change, or have you decided to have what we say and experience the benefits that are yours according to God’s Word?

Have a day, and keep chewing on God’s Word.
