these signs shall follow (Really? )

There are a lot of promises in the Bible that, as Christians, we want to believe and walk in but it is hard to when we rarely see results.
Here are a few of the troublesome  scriptures:
Mark 16
“these signs shall follow them that believe;
Mark 11
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.
Luke 8
Jesus heard it, he answered him, saying, Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole.
The common denominator is BELIEVE:
We believe that Jesus is the Son of God,  He died for my sins and rose from the dead to save us.   That is good, it means we are saved but it is not enough.
So what does Jesus say?
Matthew 17:20-21
And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.  Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.
Because of unbelief;   how can this be?  I believe,  help my unbelief.   Confusing isn’t it, if we fast today all we hear is be careful,  drink plenty of water…..you can’t go with out food, it’ll make you sick.
Let me say most of this is good advice.  Does it line up with the word? No.  The scriptures tell us of Moses, at least twice going 40 days without food or water.
Daniels twenty-one day fast.  Jesus,  40 days, also 3 day, 14 day fasts.
How can this be?
Psalm 65:4
Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.
We are the people God has chosen, He will cause whosoever will to draw near and those who do will be satisfied with Gods goodness.  So we find Gods supply to those who draw close.
I’ve fasted, prayed and I find that alot of things are still impossible for me.  Something is wrong with my belief. ..Gods word is true….why isn’t it working? Does He no longer watch over His Word to proform it?
This series will endeavor to unravel the mysteries.
