Faith and prayer move mountains!

Scripture reading for January 29th:  Matthew 21

Key scriptures for over-comers: Matthew 21:20-22 “When the disciples saw this, they were amazed.  “How did the fig tree wither so quickly?” they asked.  Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, “God, throw yourself into the sea, and it will be done.  If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.””

Jesus had cursed a fig tree that had no fruit and the next day the disciples marveled that it was dead from the roots. They asked Jesus how this could happen.  He gave them a simple but profound answer that would enable them to live as over-comers in their calling as disciples and apostles.  Having faith in God and His ability to do what He is showing you is the key to receiving answers to prayer.  Jesus told them that they could not only curse a fig tree but speak to a mountain and see it moved!   God would honor their faith and their asking Him for the ability and results that they needed for their ministry.

Observations for over-comers:  Without faith we cannot please God!  When we ask Him in faith for our needs, we honor God and He delivers!  “Ask of Me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, and the ends of the earth your possession.” (Psalm 2:8) “and call on Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor Me.”  (Psalm 50:15)
