Ask and you shall receive

“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”MARK 11:24

Most of us never experience outrageous things because we never dream of outrageous things. We are scared to hope or pray outrageous things because it feels unrealistic. Here, Jesus dares you to believe, act, and pray beyond all sensible limits. He invites you to engage in a tremendous adventure beyond what reasonable people would think possible. Really, a mountain being thrown into the sea?

But the essential point is true: God’s power is limitless. Unfortunately, our faith tends to struggle to catch up. Whenever you notice your faith shrinking, when you find yourself lowering your expectations of what God can do around and through you, remember Jesus’ incredible invitation. Then boldly ask. Believe. Anticipate. And see what incredible, impossible, outrageous acts of God will follow

“Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours” (Mark 11:22-24).
