Mark 11:23, “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.”
We’re all familiar with this wonderful passage, but did you know what Jesus was trying to teach us? Vision. Be people of vision! That’s what we were created to be. I can give you tons of examples, but let me go back to when the people built the what is called, the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11:6 & 7. And the Lord said, “Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them. Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.”
Back in that time, everyone spoke the language that Adam spoke with God in the garden; the pure language of Heaven. There were two key ingredients we must see to understand vision. First they were of one language because to accomplish anything, you must be unified in what you speak. This is probably why so few of us see what we’re believing for come to pass, because we speak our vision to the wrong people and they’re not where we are. They can’t see it, so they speak their doubt and unbelief which hinders the vision from manifesting.
Secondly, they purposed to do what they envisioned together. Unity in speech and purpose is what God saw as a combination for success. Think of successful business, they believe in a product, they surround themselves with likeminded people and they succeed. What causes a business to fail? Disunity, complaining and lack of vision. God even said that without vision, people perish.
Father, clear my vision and help me to see what you see, say what you say, agree with Your Word and allow that Word to speak things that aren’t seen yet. I know that life and death are in the power of my tongue, help me to speak life today and every day. Give me vision and keep the words I utter, that are designed to create. I want to see BIG things come to pass, so I come into agreement with you. Kingdom come! Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. It’s in Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen
