How do you handle a dilemma that’s bigger than you? Sometimes we are guilty of asking God to do some things that we could do ourselves. Jesus encourages us to have a little faith in God when we ask for something. Christ teaches a great lesson on faith in St. Mark 11:22-23, “And Jesus answering said 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 believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.” You must exercise faith by works and by deeds. Faith without works is dead. Then there are some believers who suffer from dead works. Problems don’t go away, you must face them by the power of prayer. A little faith is better than no faith. You can increase in faith by hearing and doing the preached word. The Word of God is what we must believe and do by faith. When you face a mountain of UNBELIEF or a mountain of DISAPPOINTMENT. It’s time to trust God, He will give you the power to overcome. You can overcome all your doubt and fears if you take them to the Lord. You must believe that the Lord will help you. Unbelief is sin! You must let the Spirit of God lead you to accept Christ as your personal Savior. As you began to believe, Christ frees you from sin. His saving power assures the believer that God has all power. When temptation is a problem for you, you should ask the Lord to help you. Temptation comes unexpectedly; we should always be ready for an attack from the enemy. When temptation is bigger than you, God will give you a way to excape. You cannot overcome temptation when your heart is filled with doubt.
The mountain of disappointment is filled with many obstacles that you must overcome. The love of MONEY (Mammon) will be a disappointment for those who love mammon more than they love God. When you put your trust in money, you will be disappointed. Money cannot buy love and it cannot cure an illness. When things are not going well in life, it’s time to make a change. You can make a noticeable change by the power of prayer. Prayer makes weak men become strong men and prayer makes spiritually dead men become spiritually alive men. Men without Christ are all spiritually dead. Only Christ can quicken (make alive) the souls of men. The soul of man is eternal. Disappointment will be the end of all those who reject Christ. It is work that will remove your mountain of uncertainty. If you put your trust in riches, you will fall short of the glory of God…
