Genuine faith is powerful, even in small doses! In Bible days, the mustard seed was thought to be the smallest of seed. In contract, the mulberry tree has a deep, long-reaching root system that would give it life for many hundreds of years and make it very difficult to uproot and move. In Matthew 17:14-20, Jesus told his disciples that if they had faith as small as a mustard seed they could move mountains.
Faith is vital to the Christian life. Paul wrote, “For by grace are you saved” (Ephesians 2:8). In Hebrews 11:6, Paul wrote that it is impossible to please God without faith. Jesus used the very tiny mustard seed to contract the unmeasurable, omnipotent power of God and when it is let loose in the lives of believers who have genuine faith, God can do great things. As we see God working through our tiny bit of faith, our faith grows and spreads a deep root system, influencing everyone around us and making an eternal impact on God’s kingdom. Our faith also grows as we read and study God’s Word. Peter wrote that God has given us everything we need to grow our knowledge of Him, and it’s found in the Bible.
Whatever mountain stands in front of you, allow your faith to be the avenue through which God works to bring about His perfect plan.
God, thank you that you can do unmeasurable things with our little bit of faith. Help our faith to grow, creating a deep root system that reaches out to everyone around us.
