From the Kitchen Table
Victorious Living Day 37
In the morning, as he was returning to the city, he became hungry. And seeing a fig tree by the wayside, he went to it and found nothing on it but only leaves. And he said to it, “May no fruit ever come from you again!” And the fig tree withered at once. When the disciples saw it, they marveled, saying, “How did the fig tree wither at once?” And Jesus answered them, “Truly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ it will happen. And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.” Matthew 21:18-22
Things are just like we judge them. How will we judge the things we see and do today? Jesus said, “if you have faith and do not doubt (judge), you will …” Doubting God is judging our thoughts more right than His thinking, our words better than His words. Faith opens the door to the supernatural power & privilege of God as we judge, determine, that God’s word is right and real and right for our situation. If forgiveness is the key to heavens door and thanksgiving is the handle that faith opens the door with, then prayer works as the hinges of that door. Believers who pray, are the ones who judge God’s word as right and real. Faith in God and His word stops to look at the tree, judge it according to God’s word and pray. Faith opens the door to God’s supernatural generosity through prayer. Judge God’s word today as right and real for you and your life.
