What Do You Want?

Mark 11:23-“Whoever says to their mountain, be removed, and be cast into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart but believes that those things he says will be done; he will have whatever he says.

Jesus did not say, “Whosoever shall speak to God about their mountain.” He said that we must speak directly to our mountain (the problem) the desired end result that WE want. God has set spiritual principles in place that will work for whoever will use them. These principles are just like gravity, they work every time. You will have whatever you say. The truth is that you have what you’ve been saying. So, the question is – Is what you have what you want? If not, then you need to change what you’re saying.

These principles work every time, just like gravity.

From a natural point of view, I know that sounds crazy. But in 1 Corinthians 1:27 it explains that God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise. It’s always going to sound foolish to the world and to your natural thinking when you talk as if what God has promised is a reality, especially when the things that you are saying contradict the natural evidence around you. But if you want to live in victory and keep the enemy defeated, that’s the kind of talking you must do.

The Bible says that Abraham “the father of our faith” talked that way! In Romans 4:16,17, it says, “[He] Abraham called (spoke) those things which be not as though they were.” Abraham didn’t wait for circumstances to change before he spoke. He caused his circumstances to change because he spoke the desired end result. He did not speak what he had; he spoke what he wanted. What do you want? You can do the same thing if you’ll make your words agree with God’s and speak them out of your mouth by faith. Pastor Thomas Buchanan says, “You are sick and tired because you say you are.” If we want something different then we’re going to have to say something different. Abraham said what he wanted for twenty-five years before he got it. How bad do you want it?

He did not speak what he had; he spoke what he wanted.

The problem with religion is that it doesn’t want to take any responsibility for the authority that God has delegated to us on earth. So, because they refuse to recognize their Spiritual Authority as Ambassadors, Kings, and Priests, they end up being victims to their circumstances or problems and call that “God’s will.” Basically, blaming God for something within their ability to change. In John chapter five, Jesus shows us this with the man at the pool of Bethesda. The man had been sick for thirty-eight years, so Jesus asked him, “Do you want to be healed?” Jesus was asking him, what do you want? Jesus asks us questions because He will never violate our will or our decision to keep things as they are.

The easy determining factor, as I taught this past Sunday is, if your problem is contrary to Healthy, Happy and Blessed (Psalm 91:16), then it’s not from God. But God won’t do anything about your problem until you speak to it and you tell your problem what to do because God will not violate your authority on earth. After you declare your faith, then God will move your mountain in honor of your authority on earth and the declaration that you made.

You tell your problem what to do.

Follow Abraham’s and Jesus’ example. Let your faith speak the desired result that you want. Agree with God and His Word!

My prayer for you today is that you will take the authority that God has given you and move your problems out of the way so that you can be everything that God intends for you to be.
