Small Faith Moves Mountains

November 10, 2013

Matthew 17:20 NKJV… So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.

Notice how Jesus doesn’t say to increase faith or that more faith is needed.

Even faith in the Lord as small as a mustard seed is enough to move mountains!

Luke 17:5-6The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!”
So the Lord said, “If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.

Thank You Lord Jesus that if we believe in You, nothing is impossible! Help me to remember that even with a small amount of faith in You, the impossible becomes possible.

Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. -Eph 3:20-21

Matthew 13:31-33    He presented another parable to them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his field; and this is smaller than all other seeds, but when it is full grown, it is larger than the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and nest in its branches.” 

He spoke another parable to them, “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three pecks of flour until it was all leavened.” 

A small amount of leaven can influence a large amount of dough in a positive way. Unleavened bread is flat, hard, dry, and unappetizing. Leavened bread is soft, spongy, warm, and tasty. 

This is interesting because I always thought leaven was compared to evil, for example, in Luke 12:1, Jesus said, `…Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy’. 

Evil and sin may spread like leaven; but take heart! Greater is He that is in you than all that are against you; the word of life which has been hidden in the world, hidden in believing hearts, is a leaven too. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ abounds! With a small mustard seed of faith in Jesus, that which seems impossible is possible. 

All things are possible with God. –Mt 19:26 

A small seed goes a long way! 

Matthew 17:20    And He said to them, “… for truly I say to 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.
