Commands of Christ: 76

Have faith in God.

In the morning, as they went along, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots.  Peter remembered and said to Jesus, “Rabbi, look! The fig tree you cursed has withered!”  “Have faith in God,” Jesus answered.  “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them.  Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”  Mark 11:20-24

If we are living and walking in the Holy Spirit, we can know that our words and actions and ways are in His will.  He is able to bring about anything.  We are not serving ourselves, but Him.  We are not seeking our desires, but His.  Let us not be shy about asking for anything we need to do so.  His glory is a worthy cause.  It is worth God’s attention and resources.  He can and will provide.  Have the faith to ask.
