COMMANDS

Dag Heward-Mills

READ: Mark 4:36-41

And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.

Mark 4:39

Did you know that you can speak to things that do not have physical ears and they will respond? Jesus did that all the time.

Jesus spoke to the wind and the sea. The sea can respond to your commands of faith! Once, He also spoke to a fig tree and said, “…No man eat fruit of thee here after forever…” (Mark 11:14).

In the city of Nain, Jesus commanded the dead person to listen. He interrupted the funeral procession and raised a young man back to life. “…And he said, YOUNG MAN, I SAY UNTO THEE, ARISE. And he that was dead sat up…” (Luke 7:14,15). I see you commanding your dead business to resurrect! Declare over your shop the victory of Jehovah!

Speak to your bank account and tell it to come alive! Announce to every mountain you are facing that it will have to move! Affirm the fact that every impossible situation will be made possible! Insist that you have the victory everyday, inspite of what you see or feel! We walk by faith and not by sight! (2 Corinthians 5:7).

Feelings are real, but God has not asked us to live by them. We are to live by our faith. The father of faith, Abraham, believed that he would have a child. In spite of how he felt, he called those things that were not, as though they were (Romans 4:17). I know that there are many things that do not seem realistic. God is not asking you to be realistic; He is asking you to walk by your faith.
