In His Word Wednesday: Mark 11:22-24

Please forgive me for not posting last week. I feel terribly ashamed. I have to say sometimes I can be the queen of procrastination. Then I've missed a very important opportunity.

Mark 11:22-24
So Jesus answered and said to them, "Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be removed and be 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. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them."

For the last few weeks I have been writing a series on seeking God's guidance. I wanted to share points that will help when you are at the point of making a decision. We all know when God is in the decision, it's always better for us and others. If you are just now joining us please go back and read part 1 (introduction), part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5.

These verses are very clear in what fifth thing we need to do when seeking God's guidance. Jesus tells us just to "believe." Sounds easy doesn't it? Well depending on the circumstances, and what guidance is needed, many times it is not easy at all. We all know God, in His sovereignty, is capable of doing anything. Many of us have stumbling blocks that makes belief easy. Sometimes we think we do not deserve. Let me stop here and say, "God loves you and has plans to prosper you." Often we need to stop and evaluate what we are asking. Reach deep is side and honestly ask, "Is this the best for me and my life?" Thankfully, God knows what is best for each of us, and He knows what tomorrow brings. Praise you Lord for your sovereignty.


  1. Having missed the others, and under time constraints, am just commenting to say that I agree wholeheartedly with what you say about believing in what you're praying for. It's working every day for me since my darling husband died in May!

  2. Oh that scripture is soooo what I needed to read tonight. I have faith in God and have prayed for His blessings. I know that my needs will be met. If there is a tinge of dought, I tell the devil to get behind me in Jesus' name.

    Have a blessed evening!


    Thank you!
