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 shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

The reality of these words really struck me in church yesterday. But with it came a question:

Do I talk about my problems or do I talk to my problems?

Admittedly a modern mindset might see Christ’s words as strange but He was all about teaching us to live as He lived. It’s easy to talk about what we’re going through; it’s harder to talk to them.

One night on a raging sea Christ gave us a supreme example. While the disciples were talking about the storm, He turned and spoke to the storm.

Peace, be still.

When circumstances seem contrary, take God’s Word of promise and echo them from your heart and mouth. Anxiety, fear, depression, even physical challenges bow to His will. 

Live in faith,
