“Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done. And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.”
Does this mean that Jesus is just going to give us whatever our hearts desire?
Many have come to think this way. The entire “name it and claim it” movement is built on these types of scripture.
John reflected on this:
1 John 3:22
“and whatever we ask we receive from him, because we keep his commandments and do what pleases him.”
When we walk according to Gods purpose, this means we are following the path He sets before us. When the Lord leads the way, He promises to supply you with all you need for the journey.
This is reflective of God’s love in that He will never leave us or forsake us.
Whether a mountain stands in the way or a provision is needed for the moment, He promises to supply us accordingly.
We are to be free from the love of money. Our focus is on God’s will….not our own.
