It Will Happen QuicklyTuesday, May 10, 2016
Then he returned to Bethany, where he stayed overnight. In the morning, as he was returning to Jerusalem, he was hungry and noticed a fig tree beside the road. He went over to see if there were any figs, but there were only leaves. Then he said to it, “Never bear fruit again!” And soon the fig tree withered up. The disciples were utterly amazed and asked, “How did the fig tree wither so quickly?”
How did the fig tree wither SO QUICKLY!? I have been meditating on that for several days now. I like it when things happen quickly.
The Lord spoke to that fig tree, and IMMEDIATELY it dried up FROM THE ROOTS. It was dead and was not ever going to bear fruit again. The next day the disciples walked by and were amazed when they saw that the tree had withered up. They asked Jesus how it happened so quickly.
When God is involved things can happen quickly. When He speaks, problems GO. When He speaks, hearts are CHANGED. When He speaks, financial breakthrough COMES.
The amazing part is He told us to do the speaking. It's His power and authority in us that will do the work. We just need to do the talking. We are the vessel.
In verses 21-22 Jesus goes on to tell the disciples how they can not only speak to fig trees and see them wither away quickly, but they can speak to MOUNTAINS and cast them into the sea!
Start rejoicing now, friends. Whatever you are believing for, it can happen QUICKLY.
