Mark 11:20-23 KJV

And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots. And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away. And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. 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.

Sometimes we have certain expectations of how things should be. We often make these great plans based on our limited perspective and past experiences. When things do not go according to our plan, we may begin to feel that all is lost. In this passage, Peter and the other disciples must have felt the same way when they saw the fig tree that Jesus cursed the day before withered away. Peter, who himself declared that Jesus was the Christ earlier and had seen the great miracles Jesus had performed, must have thought what hope was left for this fig tree since it had been cursed by Jesus. Jesus' response, however, was have faith in God. Jesus was teaching the disciples to put more faith in who God is then in their own limited vision. In other words, God always has a plan b. For instance, when Adam sinned in the garden, God had the solution of Jesus , the seed. Abraham understood this when he was asked to sacrifice his son Issac. When Issac asked where was the ram that would be sacrificed, Abraham responded that the Lord would provide it. Jesus was trying to show the disciples also that even though Israel had rejected him, God's plan of salvation would not stop but be offered to the Gentiles. So when life does not go according to plan, humble yourself and have faith in God knowing that our faith in him can move mountains.

Thought for today: Is my faith in my planning or is my faith in God?
