Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
Now in the morning, when He was returning to the city, He became hungry. Seeing a lone fig tree by the road, He came to it and found nothing on it except leaves only; and He said to it, “No longer shall there ever be any fruit from you.” And at once the fig tree withered.
Seeing this, the disciples were amazed and asked, “How did the fig tree wither all at once?” And Jesus answered and said to them, “Truly I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ it will happen. And all things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.”
God is good and He is faithful. He is also able to do, within His will, above and beyond what we could ever ask.
Also true is that He honors our faith. We do not have to be perfect, but we do have to be actively seeking Him, His will, and trust Him for His blessings and provision.
