Matthew 17:20 (ESV)
He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”
As we trust God our faith will grow. We know that we can trust Him because He will never fail. But how much faith have you got? How much faith do we need to have? That’s what the disciples asked Jesus, they wanted more faith and Jesus said, “Suppose you have faith as small as a mustard seed. Then you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be pulled up. Be planted in the sea.’ And it will obey you.” Luke 17:5-6.
Jesus used this mustard seed example again when the disciples asked why they couldn’t perform miracles like Jesus did, He said, “Because your faith is much too small. What I’m about to tell you is true. If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, it is enough. You can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there.’ And it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:21 Faith as small as a mustard seed was all they needed. A mustard seed is tiny especially when compared to the size of a mountain! Imagine something so small having such great power. When our faith is in God and He is working through us it is powerful.
Dear Lord, With You, nothing is impossible! We want to have mountain moving faith because we know You will never fail us. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
