Call in to speak with the host
Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is Matthew 6:9-13
Our prayer motivator devotional today is part 6 of our new series titled "DOES GOD WORK MIRACLES TODAY?" from Dr. John R. Rice.
In Mark 11:22-24 we have in slightly different words the promise of the Saviour when He discussed with the disciples the withered fig tree which He had cursed:
"And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them."
How wonderful that the Holy Spirit here gave us added light on what Jesus promised. Compare this passage with Matthew 21:21-22 and you will see that in Matthew 21:21 there might be some reason to suppose that Jesus was talking to the disciples, the twelve apostles, alone. But here in Mark 11:23 the Saviour plainly says, "Whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith." The promise is not only for the apostles; it is for "whosoever." If "whosoever" in John 3:16 means anybody who trusts Christ for salvation, then "whosoever" in Mark 11:23 means anybody who will trust Christ for a miracle. If Jesus Christ is to be believed, and if the Bible can be trusted, then anybody who has faith for a miracle will get one!
