Topic: Believing Is seeing – The Faith Principle
SCRIPTURE: And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots. And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away. Mark 11:20-21
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The mountain-moving faith is faith that does not see before it believes.
MESSAGE: From our anchor scripture we see how Peter drew the attention of Jesus Christ the next day to the withering of the tree that Jesus cursed the previous day (Mark 11:21). This implies that Jesus was not looking towards the fig tree in order to curse it again just in case it refused to die; someone had to remind Him. As far as Jesus was concerned, the death of the fig tree was history. Seeds of Destiny Devotional July 9, 2017
That was mountain-moving faith in action. It is very crucial to note that the mountain-moving faith is faith that does not see before it believes.
The world says, ‘Seeing is believing’ but the mountain-moving faith says ‘believing is seeing.’
On the journey of faith, we do not see results before we believe; we believe to see the expected results. Psalm 27:13 says: I had fainted unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord… So, we believe to see.

Mountain-moving faith does not wait to confirm if what was prayed for or decreed about will happen or not; it is faith that is not surprised at answers. People with mountain-moving faith are rather surprised when what they believed did not happen. Their surprise is not that it happened; their surprise would be if it did not happen.
I declare to you, extra ordinary things shall become ordinary in your life, in Jesus’ Name!
