Matthew 17:20b “…for truly I say unto 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.”
Luke 17:6 a The Lord answered, “If you had faith even as small as a mustard seed…”
The Lord calls this degree of faith, that is capable of attaining such great results, “faith as a grain a mustard seed.” The mustard seed is called in the Bible “less than all the seeds that be in the earth”. Mark 4:31 (KJV) In other words it was tiny. In Israel this tiny mustard seed grows into a large tree.
The Lord uses this tiny seed as an example of a faith that can move mountains. It’s an example of a faith that once planted grows large and spreads out branches.
We are all confronted daily with many questions and problems that seem like mountains, impossible obstacles. This is where we need to change our way of thinking. Even a small amount of faith can do great things.
You may be damaged, you may feel miserable and weak. Mountains of cares and problems confront you, but that tiny spark of faith can blossom into a mighty tree.
Don’t have even that tiny faith? “You have not, because you ask not.” Ask for that tiny bit of faith and watch it grow.
