“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.” –  Mark 11:23 (NKJV)

An interesting makeup of humanity is that we are wired to trust and believe. We believe that doctor-prescribed medicines will cure our ailments. We trust that the pilot whom we barely know is qualified and trained enough to fly us halfway across the world, over the Atlantic Ocean. We believe in gravity, that if we jump up, we will inadvertently come down. We believe we will excel in that course if we study for it and apply ourselves. 

Everyone, old, or young,  believes and trusts in something, whether it’s themselves, science or even the concept of a Santa Clause who rewards good kids. However, only belief in one message and one person can assure salvation. 

When you receive the Gospel of Jesus Christ, you become a believer (John 1:12; 3:16). This means that at the point of salvation, you put your trust in God,  letting go of doubt. Therefore, living in doubt as a believer is against your identity in Christ – doubt and believing contradict one another. 

From our anchor scripture, Jesus painted a world of possibilities in the minds of His disciples. He had just spoken to the fig tree, and it dried up from its root. After the miracle, in verse 22, He admonished His disciples (and us, by extension) to have the faith of God.

This means that we are to speak as God speaks. He calls things not in existence as though they were (Romans 4:18). When He created the world, He called things out of nothing. As believers, we can speak as God did. If you can believe in God for the salvation of your soul, you can trust Him for the natural aspects of your life. So, you can call things into existence in your life – health in place of sickness, direction instead of confusion and provision out of famine.

When life throws challenges your way, turn to God’s word, speak it boldly from your heart (Romans 10:8-10),  and guard against doubt (Proverbs 4:23). Be careful not to allow doubts into your heart. Be mindful of negative influences and associations, especially with people who lack faith (Hebrews 13:5b-6, 1 Corinthians 15:33).

Dear believer, you are called a believer for a reason. Your faith is in God’s word, and guess what? God’s word has never and will never fail. Always speak God’s word and never let your doubt take over God’s word in your heart.

SAY THIS: I am a believer! I believe in God’s word for my life. I believe all that God has said about me. I do not doubt and I do not stagger at the promise of God.
