He replied, “Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” (Matthew 17:20 NIV84)
Last night I looked at a mustard seed and it kind of puzzled me as I asked myself “Is this the size of the Faith I need to move my mountains?” Well my conclusion was that God does not require much from us. He wants us to do the little we can, that is by having Faith in Him, and trusting that He can do all things. Yet this seems to be the most difficult thing for most believers. They believe in creation instead of the Creator.
NOW FAITH is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses]. (Hebrews 11:1 AMP)
Faith is believing that God has already finished everything about you. That is He has given you good health, great ideas, better marriage, wealth, power, great influence, he equipped you to do great works, etc before you came to the womb. Faith is doing what the Word of God says, and believing that everything He has said about you in His Word will come to pass. Faith gives hope for a great future.
Ephesians 1:3 says “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.” God has blessed us with every spiritual blessings according to the scripture. And for that matter, we need to bring those blessings into the physical with our Faith. The truth is without Faith none of the good things He has for you can be seen in the physical.
God does not want to see us poor, sick, depressed, bankrupt, worried, confused, homeless, jobless, starving, bed bound, desperate, etc. However, He works with our faith. When your faith is little, be sure to get little things from Him. By the way, the size of the Faith he wants to see you have is that of a mustard seed, which is so small.
Study the Word of God, Listen to more tapes from ministers of the Gospel, Pray, listen to God, and Practice what you have heard.
