A to Z Scripture Adventure: V is Mark 11:23

posted in: A to Z Challenge 2015 | 0

VAre you kidding me? You can’t be serious! That’s incredible! Are you sure that’s in the Bible? Why have I never seen that before?

These are all common exclamations you might hear from people who are seeing Mark 11:23 for the first time. Here you find 47 words packed with a dynamic truth that can land you right in the middle of God’s will for your life!

See if you can find the 11 words that epitomize what Jesus is saying to us in Mark 11:23.

 Verily I say unto you, 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 says shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he says.

Do you hear what He is saying to you?

Whosoever shall say, and shall not doubt, but shall believe, shall have.

And in 3 words:

Say, believe, have.

V15I didn’t say it. My pastor didn’t make it up. Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob didn’t invent this idea. Jesus said it! I know you don’t like the idea of “name it and claim it.” I don’t either. In my opinion that is some man’s phrase for making the Word of God sound like something we should run away from. Instead of running away from this verse, I want to run to it, and I have.

I have embraced Mark 11:23 and said it more than any of the other verses except for it’s neighbor, the “W” verse which we shall soon talk about. We know that the person who “names it, and claims it,” leaving God out of the equation will end up spiritually poor.

Jesus gives this beautiful law of faith to all people everywhere. It works for Christians, atheists, Jews, Gentiles, people of all nations, male and female, young and old. It is a truth, a law, a principle to live by. Be excited for those who know this truth, and who also know it’s Source, Jesus Christ, personally. This person can work with Almighty God to say, believe, and have what He wants us to have, and do what He wants us to do for His glory, bringing His Kingdom to earth as He desires.

This is a tremendous verse that can literally change the world. It can change your world. It is far worth every second of time you can spare to meditate it. Give God glory for all He reveals in you through it.

I encourage you to embrace Mark 11:23 and make a difference in your world for the glory of God by saying, believing, and having. Praise the Lord forevermore!

You know what to do on Day 22 of the A to Z Scripture Adventure. Say, think, or sing Mark 11:23 ten times, ten times throughout the day or as many times as you can. Also, please pray for the requests on the Prayer Wall, and think about what you will do on May 1 to continue to put God’s Word in your heart and allow it to come alive in you. The adventure is just beginning!

I have so enjoyed having you on this journey with me.
