“Then Jesus said to the disciples, “Have faith in God. I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart. I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours.” (Mark 11:22-24)
This is a wonderful encouraging scripture that builds faith…But…we must read the next verse…
“But when you are praying, FIRST, forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too.” (Mark 11:25)
So friends, our conscience must be clear. If there is anything not dealt like, like a grudge or any sin, our faith, like pure water, has to be filtered through our sin, a dirty filter, which our conscience understands and knows. Then our faith is muddied and our conscience deems us unworthy to receive the miracle.
