Mark 11:23-24

“I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart. I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours.”

Insight: The power of belief. I remember reading this verse as a child and then praying for a million dollars, it didn’t happen. I really thought I believed that God could! What I love about Jesus is that he knows what is best for us at all times. We then get the opportunity to pray and believe that he will come through, and I believe that he does when we ask. It just looks different than what we would expect. The important part is that we pray and truly believe he will come through. If we do, our faith has already won no matter what the out come.

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you that you are good in every circumstance. I also thank you that you give us the opportunity to pray and trust that you will come through. That is what faith is. Help us today to pray and when we do, to trust you no matter what the outcome. Because you are always good!
