“You don’t have enough faith,” Jesus told them. “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.”
The disciples had just tried to heal a demon possessed boy but they failed. They began to question as to why they couldn’t complete the casting of the demons. Jesus tells them the reason: It was a Faith issue! He told them they didn’t have enough faith.
He told they needed mustard seed faith. A mustard seed is one of the most smallest seed. But in produces a big tree of bush. Our faith is must like this seed, it starts with a small spark and then grows into a fruitful harvest for those, who trust and put confidence in God’s power.
- The Mistake- The disciples had made a mistake in not trusting in God’s power for the faith to heal. His power is required in the healing.
- The Mustard Seed- The smallest starting point in your faith life. Your faith grows as grow in Jesus.
- Mountain Movement- If you start with just a little “seed” of faith, you can trust him to the mountains in your life, if it is His will.
The mountains won’t move without: Your Faith + His Power + His Will = Mountain Movement.
What mistakes are you making in your faith life? How have you seen yourself grow or would like to see yourself grow in your faith life? What mountains do you need to allow you faith to move?
Start small! Grow Big!
Your Faith + His Power + His Will = Mountain Movement.
