Bird flies; baby bird will fly. Unnatural if baby bird doesn’t fly. Likewise, unnatural if a Child of God speaks and it does not happen. Not unnatural if it happens when he or she speaks.

  • He replied, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you. Lk 17:6 NIV

Two things we can do

  1. Spend time with God: The LORD was with Samuel as he grew up, and He (God) let none of Samuel’s words fall to the ground. 1 Sam 3:19 NIV
  2. Speak & keep speaking: Jesus had been saying to him, “Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!” Mark 5:8 AMP
