" And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry: And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet. And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it. "
This is the question you must ask in this day. Our problems are talking to us day and night. Our society is filled with stress and high anxiety. It's no wonder that heart attacks are at the top of our list when it comes to sickness and disease, but believe it or not, I have good news. The Bible has all the answers.
As you read Mark 11:12-14, Jesus had a bad day. He was hungry and wanted breakfast. Fig trees, during Bible times, provided delicious dates that were eaten for breakfast. Now, in this age and time, we will go to a Hardee's or McDonald for breakfast and have some bacon, eggs and coffee. Imagine not getting to Hardee's because you had a flat tire? By the time you fix it, it was time to go to work! That's a bad day!
Jesus was no exception. He wanted to find some delicious dates, but it wasn't there. It said something. That fig tree spoke something to Jesus---It said no figs for you. Lack was talking! What did Jesus do? He answered it with the word.(Mark 11:14) That word was so strong that it went to the root of the tree and it dried out.
Are you going thru a financial challenge? Believe it or not, Lack is talking to you! Been given a bad report for your health? Lack is talking. In this day, I challenge you to renew your mind to God's word. Answer your lack with the word and watch it go deep to the root of your problem and give you victory---God bless!
