Make a Difference: Move the Mountain

33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. [John 16]

3 Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, 4 Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father: 5 To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. [Galatians 1]

1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; [1 Timothy 2]

14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: [1 John 5]

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, 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. 24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. [Mark 11]

  1. For sure, Annie! These promises are clearly made to the children of God, those with the limitless resource of the indwelling Holy Spirit.

    When I find myself slipping into feeling put-upon by another, I have a lot easier time forgiving if I remember Jesus prayer, “Forgive them, Father, for they don’t know what they are doing”, while reconciling the truth that He was on that cross for my sin. I am one of the ones He was praying for.

    2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.
    3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
    4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. [1 John 5]

    I recognize this is not always easy. I am working with a friend who has many negative outcomes in his life due to having a hard time laying down anger and forgiving. Walking by faith instead of by habitual yielding to emotions is sometimes a hard-won lesson.
