Your “Need” Activates Your Faith - November 28th 2022

Monday, 28th November, 2022

By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome


"And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. 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" (Mark 11:22-23 KJV)


Someone once said, “I have never seen anybody move a mountain with faith; was Jesus just using symbolism or did He mean what He said in Mark 11:22-23? Can you really command a mountain to move?”

Yes, Jesus meant it. But Jesus was not talking about a game. He was not saying that we go out in the street and say, “I am here to show you how powerful I am”; then you start commanding mountains and buildings to move. NO!

The question is, why would you want to move a physical mountain; to what intent and purpose? Our faith is always connected to our needs. If there is no need for it, there will be no faith to it. So, you may find yourself trying to make something happen that will not happen because there is no need to activate faith in the first place.

Faith is activated only when there is a need for it. When you find yourself in a situation and you have a “need”, do not despair; that need will activate your faith. It is like the woman who was told she would never be able to get pregnant. That news activated her faith, and soon enough, she had her baby. Until she heard that she would never have a baby, she did not know she could have one with her faith.

The same can be said of the fellow who was healed of cancer; he did not know he could make it happen until he was told he had only one month to live. The news triggered his faith, and he began to declare, “I shall not die, but live”, and indeed, he was healed. Hallelujah!

Never be overwhelmed with your need; rather, let your needs connect to your faith. Let your needs excite you. Once you connect to a need, that is your opportunity to overwhelm your need with your faith. Praise God!


"In Christ, I am self-sufficient. I was born into an incorruptible, inexhaustible inheritance. My faith is the victory that overcomes the world! I have overcome the world and its system and structures. My path is that of glory and excellence, victory, success, joy, health, and prosperity which God has ordained for me. I walk in dominion. Hallelujah!"
