The Mountain – Week 24
Our final week of the formal MKMMA class. It is just as impactful and the first class.
Romans 12:2, a favorite verse for most Christians, speaks of renewing the mind in order to be transformed into something new. Renewing is done by changing our thinking from what we don’t want to what we do want based on what is available in the Bible. Sounds easy!
I have long used the verse in Mark that reflects great believing to change circumstances by “renewing” my mind.
For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.
But I have also become discouraged at times feeling like I must have hardly any faith because I saw no change in my circumstances. I only need the faith of a mustard seed and the mustard seed spoken of in Biblical times is smaller than a grain of coarse sugar.
What was I doing wrong?
Maybe others got it, but I didn’t. This was an endless source of frustration for me.
This week I read in the Master Key System:
When you come to know that every form of disease, sickness, lack, and limitation are simply the result of wrong thinking, you will have come to know “the Truth which shall make you free.” You will see how mountains may be removed. If these mountains consist only of doubt, fear, distrust, or other forms of discouragement, they are none the less real and they need not only to be removed but to be “cast into the sea.
Master Key Week 24
Now it seems so simple.
It’s not the circumstance that is removed and cast into the sea; it’s the wrong thought. Remove that thought as if it is cast into the sea. I’ll never be able to retrieve it if it is in the bottom of the sea.
I’m thankful for this little revelation that will totally change my life. It has already. All those years of misapplying the scripture in Mark are behind me and now I am equipped to more easily change how I think.
This has truly been a life changing class that I will apply for the rest of my life. I anticipate seeing the fruit of my labor for years.
