Mark 11:23-24

The twelve apostles just witnessed that Jesus said unto a fig tree, "No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever," and then the tree withered away and died. This of course greatly astonished them because what Jesus said to an inanimate object actually came to pass! So Jesus taught:

"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.

"Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them."

Danny was telling me a story yesterday about an investigator he met in Armenia. He and his companion were stopped on the street by a young woman who had been taught by previous missionaries and desired to be taught again. She said she wanted to meet later and described the shop and the street where they could meet.

However, when they went to meet here, there were TWO shops on that street that met her description. The two shops were too far apart for the missionaries to divide and conquer. They would have to chose one shop and hope it was the right one.

Danny's companion prayed and said they needed a miracle to know which shop to pick. Right then, an ice cream truck pulled into the other shop, and the company name on the truck was "It's a Miracle!" Both missionaries took it as a sign and went to the other shop.

The girl had chosen that shop, and was later baptized.

Although these missionaries did not move any mountains, their faith caused a miracle to occur right before their eyes. Their desires were righteough, and were thus granted.
