“Mark 11:22–24 (ESV) 2 And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God. 23 Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
1. The Object of Faith Is God Himself.
Matthew 14:31 (ESV) Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”
2. A Second Fact Is, It’s Purpose.
3. A Third fact is The way to possess faith
1. Not doubting at all.
2. Believing in God’s authority.
4. The fourth fact Is the result of faith
Matthew 21:22 (ESV) And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.”
II. Expectancy
The Spirit of Expectancy…
· involves a man’s emotions: he desires.
· involves a man’s will: he asks.
· involves a man’s spirit: he believes.
James 1:6 (ESV)But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.
Matt 28:18-19 Jesus said, “All authority is given unto me…”
Luke 10:19 And “I give you authority … over all the power of the enemy.”
