Mark 11:23-24

Believe That You Have Received

Transcript

Mark 11:23-24 truly I say to you whoever says to this mountain be taken up and cast into the sea and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says is going to happen it will be granted him therefore I say to you all things for which you pray and ask believe that you have received them and they will be granted to you powerful, powerful scripture what this is saying again is that God has beamed things out of heaven that are already His purpose, His intention for your life they’re not yet manifest on the earth Yeshua taught us to pray let your Kingdom come let your will be done on earth even as it is in heaven there are things that have already been determined from God he’s purposed them for your life for your marriage for your finances, for your family for your health, for your destiny for what He wants to accomplish in you and through you but they’re not yet manifest on this earth how do you bring them into manifestation man’s mechanism is usually calling things that are as though they are and then designing a program to change them God’s method is just the opposite He says begin to go ahead and believe that you have received that for which you’ve already asked so you believe that you’ve received it and that’s the mechanism that it is granted let me give you an example we see this all through the Bible but Yeshua in John 2 was asked about wine there was a party the wine had run out and he told some men go take those pots that are full of water and dip in and you take that to the steward and offer it to him the men it says they knew that it was water but on the way somehow it became wine I never saw that until I read that passage clearly when it became wine is it was on the way it says the men who drew the water what did they draw water not wine when they drew it out it was water and they behaved as though it were wine that is a scary thing to do can you image if they would have gotten to the Steward and offered him water he would have had their heads he didn’t want water he wanted wine and yet they went ahead and believed that they had received that which was already yet to come and this is just a powerful principle that we need to grab hold of that what God has called us to do we talked about treating enemies like friends that we saw that Yeshua told us to bless those who curse us treat our enemies as friends love those who hate us why is that because what you’re doing is exactly what He tells us in Mark 11 to do here if we will go ahead and believe that which we have already prayed for believe it and walk in it as though it were so that is the mechanism where by we release things to happen there’s been in past times a perversion I believe of this teaching where people thought you could just get whatever you want that way this is not about you getting what you want this is about you finding out what God wants and you beginning to behave as though what God has beamed out from heaven were already true I’ve used the example many times I’ll say it again we are like television receivers television receiver can’t create anything all it does is manifest a signal that was sent to it we are exactly the same you can’t create anything all you do is tune in to the proper channel and receive what God has already beamed out for your life you believe that you have received that for which you prayed and that’s the mechanism where by it begins to be manifest and this is so true in relationships I’ve seen so many times when somebody’s treating you in an unjust way or a mean way if you begin to bless them one time Jan and I felt led to give an offering to a lady in our church we were pastoring the church and she was criticizing us she publicly said he’s just a baby pastor we need to help him He’s immature in the ministry all kinds of accusations against me you know what God led us to do to bless her with money to give to her you know what happened that stopped her mouth when we blessed her she said in her heart why would you give to me when all I do is hurt you she had a need in her life that was the reason that we gave to her it completely changed her heart that is what this is talking about it’s talking about that if you will believe what He said if you believe what let me just read it be taken up and cast into the sea about the mountain and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says is going to happen it will be granted therefore I say to you all things for which you pray and ask believe that you have received them so we believed we had already received friendship with that lady we behaved as though it were already so and that’s what brought it to pass I’ve seen that principle over and over and over again what today is it that God has spoken to you has God given you a word that hasn’t come to pass yet would you believe it and begin to behave as though it were already so that is God’s mechanism for how to release it and bring it to pass in your life so let’s pray father I pray today for each one of us that you’d show us things that you’ve already spoken to us that we have been in doubt and unbelief not grabbed hold of not received not walked in and Father that today we might walk in those things and that we might believe that we’ve already received that for which we have prayed that which you’ve already spoken to us and LORD that we would participate with you in miracles on this earth and bringing to pass things that you’ve spoken to us in the name of Yeshua Ha Mashiach Jesus the Messiah Amen
