“Have faith in God! If you have faith in God and don’t doubt, you can tell this mountain to get up and jump into the sea, and it will. Everything you ask for in prayer will be yours, if you only have faith.” Mark 11:22-24 (CEV)
Faith opens the door to miracles. If you study the Bible and history, you’ll find that every time God moves on earth and does a miracle, it’s because somebody believes.
Jesus said in Mark 11:22-24, “Have faith in God! If you have faith in God and don’t doubt, you can tell this mountain to get up and jump into the sea, and it will. Everything you ask for in prayer will be yours, if you only have faith” (CEV).
Faith can move mountains!
God has set up the universe in a hierarchy of laws. The law of faith is actually higher than the laws of nature. That’s where miracles come in. When someone has faith, the law of faith goes into practice and can actually do more than the laws of nature. The law of faith makes miracles happen.
Does God still perform miracles today? Of course he does. Every time you stretch your faith, God does miracles—every single time.
My question for you is this: What mountain in your life needs to be moved? What’s the thing that seems like it can never change? Maybe God wants your faith to supersede the laws of nature to move that mountain.
God is in the mountain-moving business. He has moved them in the past. He is moving them today all around the world. Do not doubt or underestimate what he wants to do in your life too.
Matthew 13:58 says, “[Jesus] did not do many miracles there because of their lack of faith” (NIV).
You might say, “I don’t see many miracles in my life.” Are you looking with eyes of fear, or are you looking with eyes of faith?
Let 2021 be the year when you see faith open the door to miracles.
