It amazes me of the countless number of times I have read the above passage of Scripture and believed that if I had the faith, I could do anything. Have you slipped into the same understanding that I had?
Don't you wish that all these mountains that we encounter, could be handled by the mustard seed faith?
I know that with God all things are possible, yet while meditating on the above scripture, I gained a fresh enlightenment. God not only gave me the ability to have the faith and the ability to believe that I "can", but the scripture states that I will say to the mountain......Faith requires action!!
How many times do we know that we can overcome the situation, yet we do nothing about it? How often do we pray for our children's salvation, yet not move to see it happen? How many times do we seek a financial blessing and yet not work to see the blessings come to us?
I have arrived at a very basic conclusion, and I desire to encourage you with such: God moves the mountain, yet we must believe and speak and live as though the mountain is to be moved. Let's have enough confidence that if God spoke it, He'll do it. Let's encourage one another not to sink into dispair, but to look forward to the Declaration of Victory!! Mountain Move......
God bless you as we seek to serve Him faithfully.
Love in Him,
Pastor Byron L. Jameson, Ph.D.

No matter what stand I take, I represent.
I can represent flesh......
I can represent egotism.....
I can represent "Byron".....
But true representation as a Christian is when I represent the Truth of the Word of God, The Spirit of Christ, and the Character of Christ through holy living.
I choose this day to REPRESENT!!!!
Word for Thought: The next time you feel like complaining, think of the following:
The squeaking wheel doesn't always get the grease. Sometimes it gets replaced. Also,
People make enemies by complaining too much to their friends.
Let us be people who see the blessings and help in the shortcomings of others. Remember, the Light of Christ in us shouts Love, not failure. God Bless
