He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’, and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”
How many times have you been in a situation that in the natural looked impossible? Perhaps you are facing a stressful situation in your personal life at the moment. Maybe you have a dream or vision and have been working on it, but the situation still seems fruitless. It could even be something as deep as not knowing the next steps you should take with what to do with your life. Whatever the case may be, all you need to get through any situation starts with faith the size of a mustard seed!
All we need is a little faith, to start where we are. We need begin by using the resources that God provides in front of us at this very moment. That will unlock great things in our life, through the faith we have in Jesus. Why did Jesus reference a mustard seed in Matthew ? We usually think because a mustard seed is one of the smallest seeds of all, which indicates the small amount of faith we need to have. However, although a mustard seed is exceedingly small, it grows into a mighty and strong plant. Our faith will grow and it will cause mountains to move by our good words of faith over our lives.
As we speak life and as we continue to believe, this is the watering and nourishment of our faith. I believe that Abraham, in his old age, continued to believe in God about his descendants outnumbering the sand. Year after year, he did not see anything change, but Abraham knew God to be faithful from the past and choose to believe. Keeping the faith when things look bleak is where the faith we planted flourishes. In due season, if we do not grow weary, much like Abraham, God will be faithful to us and keep His promises. As it states in Luke 1:37, "For nothing will be impossible with God." If you believe this to be true, then remain in faith.
