He Responds to Faith!

“Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this [which is done] to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done” (Matthew 21:21).

This response from Jesus to His disciples regarding the fig tree’s demise helps us to understand two things:  Being non-productive will lead to our demise and when our faith deletes doubt, we can “say” and it will be done, not by our might, but because of His response to faith.

Heavenly Father,

We seek Your guidance in all things–daily living, spiritual warfare, and in pleasing You.  Help us today, and everyday to remember that when we seek You first, we will find the answers to all questions that may bombard us in the natural and in the spiritual realm.  We praise You for Your loving kindness and mercy and grace that we could never earn.  We praise You for the angels we know You have assigned to each of us and we thank You for keeping them alert and on duty.  Comfort hearts that have lost loved ones; especially the children who did not have a chance to live a full life.  We know that You know all things and even though we may not understand everything that happens, we trust You.  Thank You for peace and calm abiding in the hearts of all and creating an environment that will resolve itself peacefully.  Thank You for giving us insight into the enemy’s ability to influence others and for giving us the weapons to defeat the enemy–the ability to love as You love and willingness to forgive.  Thank You for reminding us that when we please You, You will give us the desires of our hearts.

My desire today is for peace and love to reign all over this world and especially in our nation and I declare it done, in Jesus’ name.  Amen!
