“Have faith in God. I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, Go throw yourself into the sea and does not doubt in in his heart but believes that what he says will happen it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you whatever you ask for in prayer believe that you have received it and it shall be yours” mark 11:22-24
This is no question one of the most challenging words from Jesus himself on prayer and faith.
Removing mountains was a common term used by the Jewish rabbis so the disciples would have understood. It was a vivid phrase for removing obstacles. It was used especially for wise teachers. A good teacher could remove obstacles which the minds of scholars encountered. He was called a mountain remover. They would say As if he was plucking up mountains.
So the phrase means if we have real faith prayer is a power which can solve any problem and make us able to deal with any difficulty.
If we know something is Gods will when we ask real faith is believing we have already received it because its faith in the fact he has heard and so it’s acting as if we already have the answer. To keep on asking or begging for something he’s already promised over and over again is not faith but can be unbelief. Faith is acting on what he has already promised as if we already have it. Sometimes responding with thanksgiving that we already have it is real faith. This is especially true in regards to healing. Meditate on the passage until it gets on the inside of us.
