According to Merriam Webster Faith can be described as strong belief or trust in someone or something. That word faith can be tricky or sometimes misleading because we’re putting our faith in the wrong things. We will put our faith in people, jobs , material things but never fully in God. Merriam Webster does a good job of describing words but the real definition of faith is given in the bible. Hebrew 11:1 states – Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. When we learn to put our faith in God instead of other people we begin to experience a new relationship with Him and things begin to get better for us. Faith is daring the soul to go beyond what the eyes can not see.
That quote is powerful. We as Christians can have faith but allow doubt to slip in and mess up everything we have ever work for. Doubt can cause you to relapse as a believer but Thank God for his grace and mercy. The only way we can keep doubt out is by praying and meditating on His Word. Peter was one of Jesus disciples and he allowed doubt to almost drown him while he was walking on water with Jesus. Let’s hear Jesus response to Peter in Matt 14:31 (NIV)- And Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. ” you of little faith,” why did you doubt ?.
Jesus is asking us that same question when our faith is slipping. He’s asking : why are you doubting when I said I will supply all of your needs. Why are you doubting when I said I will never leave you nor forsake you. Why are you doubting when I said if ye have faith the grain of mustard seed , ye shall say unto this mountain, remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible for you. (Matthew 17:20 KJV )
It’s time to start having faith and speaking to your mountains. It’s time for things that been hindering your life to fall off. All you have to do is have faith the grain of a mustard seed.
What’s so special about a mustard seed is if you plant it, it will eventually become a tree . Matt 13:32 (NKJV) confirms this. Which indeed is the least of all seeds; but when it is grown it is greater than the herbs and becomes a tree, so that birds of the air come and nest in its branches.
Just imagine if our faith was the size of a tree. We would be able to do a great work in God’s Kingdom. The next time you get low on faith . Go to the nearest walmart in purchase some mustard seeds. Remember that’s all the faith you need to move mountains and there’s nothing to hard for God.
