Scripture: Mark 11:20-24 (MSG)
In The Message version, Mark 11:22-24 says, “In the morning, walking along the road, they saw the fig tree, shriveled to a dry stick. Peter, remembering what had happened the previous day, said to him, ‘Rabbi, look—the fig tree you cursed is shriveled up!’ Jesus was matter-of-fact: ‘Embrace this God-life. Really embrace it, and nothing will be too much for you. This mountain, for instance: Just say, “Go jump in the lake”—no shuffling or shilly-shallying—and it’s as good as done.’” Does God want us to be a people that expect Him to be too much for us when it is needed? He most certainly does! And we can see from how Scripture is translated, the God of too much is our Provider.
