Walking by Faith |

Dear Mr. O.: You came into the lobby & I was sitting at the TV. You told about people who had had their Social Security taken away. I said, "The Lord's not going to let that happen to me." You said, "I wish I had that confidence." I said, "You have to say it, like I did."
Don't you know you can have what you say? It's Mark chapter eleven. Mark 11:23 “For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say to this mountain, Be removed, and be thrown into the sea; and doesn’t doubt in his heart, but believes that the things that he says shall happen; he shall have whatsoever he says.”
Jesus is saying you can move a mountain. Step one: Tell it to go. Step two: Don't doubt in your heart. Step three: Believe that what you say will happen.
It's not so much a matter of my confidence, it's a matter of knowing the right way to talk, and putting that knowledge into practice.
I said, "The Lord's not going to let that happen to me." And, O, the Lord's not going to let that happen to me because I say that he won't let that happen to me. He'll do it because I said it, but I need to not doubt in my heart and believe what I said.
And you can do that too. Any Christian can.
