You don’t even know sometimes, how powerful the words coming out of your mouth are…until you see the results.
However, Jesus did know and look what His words did in this situation.
Mark 11:11-14 (MKJV) And Jesus entered into Jerusalem and into the temple. And when He had looked around on all things, the hour already being late, He went out to Bethany with the Twelve.
Mar 11:12 And on the next day, they going out of Bethany, He was hungry.
Mar 11:13 And seeing a fig-tree with leaves afar off, He went to it, if perhaps He might find anything on it. And when He came to it, He found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season of figs.
Mar 11:14 And Jesus answered and said to it, No one shall eat fruit of you forever. And His disciples heard.
What did the disciples hear?
They heard Jesus say this to the tree…”No one shall eat fruit of you forever.”
Seems like a simple enough statement, right?
It didn’t really have that much power behind it, now did it?
Well, let’s see!
Mark 11:19-24 (MKJV) And when evening came, He went out of the city.
Mar 11:20 And passing on early, they saw the fig-tree dried up from the roots.
Mar 11:21 And Peter, remembering, said to Him, Rabbi, behold, the fig tree which You cursed has withered away. (Did Jesus say, “I curse you fig-tree? No! He simply spoke “Words” that brought about the new defined state of that tree’s very existence.)
Mar 11:22 And answering Jesus said to them, Have faith of God. (Or believe like God believes, without a doubt that it will happen!)
(Now look with me at how many times He mentions “Speaking, Saying, and Praying which is speaking to God…in the next couple of verses.)
Mar 11:23 For truly I say to you that whoever shall “say” to this mountain, Be moved and be cast into the sea, and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that what he “said” shall occur, he shall have whatever he “said”.
Mar 11:24 Therefore I say to you, All things, whatever you ask, “praying”, believe that you shall receive them, and it will be to you.
“Believe” is mentioned 2 times in these last 2 verses.
But a form of “Speaking” is mentioned 4 times in the same verses.
So what does this tell us, my friends?
Speaking is twice as important, than what we say – we are actually believing for!
Because from the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks!
So what we really believe, is manifested on our lips!
Therefore, change your heart! Change your Words! Then you will surely change the outcome of your future!
You can do it my friends, in Jesus name I pray, Amen!
