YES, JUST A MUSTARD SEED FAITH
Matthew 17 vs
»»20. And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.-[KJV]«« ||
JESUS’ disciples confronted a demon of sickness. But to the amazement of Jesus, they couldn’t cast it out. He therefore addressed the situation. He had the problem to be about lack of faith (Mat 17:16,17). *For it is faith that releases the supernatural power of God to bear on a situation*. And the released power of God brings victory. However, according to Jesus, their faith was not even up to a grain of mustard seed; for if they had it they would have been able to heal the sick according to Jesus’ response to the subject (Mat 17:20).
Throughout scripture, Jesus never commended their lack of faith. He dealt with it with all seriousness. Those with great faith were always a marvel to him. He told the Syrophenician woman, “O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou will” (Mat 15:28). He also marveled at the faith of the Roman centurion and said, “Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel” (Mat 8:15). These scenarios imply that God commends a lifestyle of faith. He is really pleased by it (Heb 11:6).
Cherished one, I may not know what great faith is, but Jesus told me what a mustard seed faith could do. It can say to challenges to be removed and they will. Therefore a mustard seed faith which is put to an effective use can still yield great results. Beloved, you only need to use that mustard seed faith against that challenge. God has given you the measure of faith but until you act with it, you won’t know whether it has a mountain moving power(Rom 12:3). For the power of faith is not seen when lying dormant but when acted upon through confessions and corresponding actions. As you go out today, all you need to apply is the mustard seed kind of faith and no problem can ever stand it. Don’t be surprised Jesus used a mustard seed (not a coconut or cargo seed). He knows best. Put to use that faith now. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always.
I have been given the measure of faith in Christ Jesus. I possess a mountain moving faith that releases God’s power over my challenges. I refuse to let my faith lie dormant. I choose to apply the faith that I have over anything ungodly for a victorious living in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen !
Enjoy A Blissful Wednesday !
