AFFECTING WHAT YOU SEE AROUND YOU

3 By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.
Hebrews 11:3


23 “For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this 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.”
Mark 11:23


The things we see with our physical eyes were not created from other things we can see. They were created by the force called faith. Often times, even in natural examples, certain materials are put together to create something else. There is a truth we need to grasp: there are things we see around us that were not created and built up from materials we can see with our physical eyes or that we can handle with our hands. They came into existence by faith. Therefore, there are certain things you can bring into existence by the force of faith, because the force of faith, though spiritual, will affect physical things.

Hebrews 11:3 describes what happened in Genesis 1 when God called “light” and many other things into being. God is telling us how He did that. He did it by faith, and He says you should, “Have the faith of God.” If the things that were created out of nothing were created by faith and He tells you to have His faith, it means your faith can affect things that you see around you.

According to Jesus, the position of these physical undesirable mountains can be rearranged. Are there physical things that are in certain parts of your life and your body that are undesirable to you? Then they are wrongly positioned. They need to be repositioned and it’s within your power and ability to rearrange and to move them! Jesus didn’t say that when you see undesirable things you should start complaining about them. No, He said to rearrange them. It’s that easy.

Jesus said we are to command that the mountain be cast into the sea because the sea can swallow up the mountain and submerge it so that you don’t ever see it again!

Confession: Through the force of faith I can bring into existence things I desire. Through the force of faith I remove and rearrange every undesirable thing in my life and my body because in Christ I have the power and ability to do so.
