Have you ever wondered about the size of a mustard seed? It is the smallest of seeds around. Yet Jesus uses it as an analogy for how we are to have our faith. It may not seem like much, but if we believe enough we can produce great things.
Matthew 17:20 says; And He said to them, “Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.
Our faith has to come from within and we also have to believe in our hearts what we are reading is true. Fore ‘we can do all things through Christ who give us strength’ and by doing this we become more like him. Seeing his character as we go through our daily lives.
Luke 17:6: And the Lord said, “If you had faith like a mustard seed, you would say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and be planted in the sea’; and it would obey you.
So how can we not have faith in all that we do. God created us to use our minds and to think of what we need to do. So for me it is not a hard task to do, but sometimes I falter because I am trying to hard. Have you ever done that or felt that way? God tells as that he will never leave us nor forsake us. So why don’t we trust him more? These are questions that I have and I would love to hear your thoughts as well.
Great post. Couldn’t find where to subscribe on mobile version. One day I will get my laptop back, lol
I think two reasons we don’t trust:
1. Past “faith failures”. We hoped God would come through in the past and He didn’t.
2. We are taught not to trust even in Church.
Our experiences should not dictate the word or God. our experiences and feelings can be wrong, but the word of God is the truth.
As a man of God put it, it may be true that you are sick, but the truth is you are healed 2000 years ago.
