Living Mustard Seed Faith

Matthew 17:20 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)
20 He said to them, Because of the littleness of your faith [that is, your lack of firmly relying trust]. For truly I say to you, if you have faith [that is living] like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, Move from here to yonder place, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.

7 for we walk by faith, not by sight [living our lives in a manner consistent with our confident belief in God’s promises]—

Righteous and Full of Mercy

April 8, 2014

From 365 Promises

Ps116_5

Psalm 116:5 NKJV
Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; Yes, our God is merciful.

From NetBible Ps 116:5

  • merciful[07355] = to love deeply, be compassionate, have tender affection

In view of the LORD’s great love and mercy through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ His Son:

Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. -He 4:16

It only takes a mustard seed of faith – use the faith you have!

Luke 17:5-6 AMP
5 The apostles said to the Lord, Increase our faith (that trust and confidence that spring from our belief in God).
6 And the Lord answered, If you had faith (trust and confidence in God) even [so small] like a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, Be pulled up by the roots, and be planted in the sea, and it would obey you.

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

Nothing Impossible

July 20, 2011

Matthew 17:20 AMP … He said to them, Because of the littleness of your faith [that is, your lack of firmly relying trust]. For truly I say to you, if you have faith [that is living] like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, Move from here to yonder place, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.

Living faith is
Abiding vitally untied to the vine.

Dwell in Me, and I will dwell in you. [Live in Me, and I will live in you.] Just as no branch can bear fruit of itself without abiding in (being vitally united to) the vine, neither can you bear fruit unless you abide in Me. I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing. -Jn 15:4-5 AMP

To him who believes
… who has a living faith
… who has faith, confidence and a firmly relying trust in Jesus
All things are possible!

All things are possible to him who believes. Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!” -Mk 9:23-24

Live in Me, and I will live in you
that My joy will live and endure in you,
and that your joy may be full, complete, perfect, lacking nothing.

Living faith produces the fruit of joy; everlasting joy. -Jn 15:16

You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore. -Ps 16:11

These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. -Jn 15:11

Don’t be afraid; just believe. -Mk 5:36

Mustard Seed Faith

May 6, 2011

Mark 4:30-32Again he said, “What shall we say the kingdom of God is like, or what parable shall we use to describe it? 31 It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth. 32 Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade.”

Psalm 104:10,12He sends the springs into the valleys; they flow among the hills. … By them the birds of the heavens have their home; they sing among the branches.

Your faith may seem small or insignificant
But if you don’t give up and trust the Lord to grow it
-Gal 6:9

‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’
Says the LORD of hosts.
-Zech 4:6,10

It will become like a large tree
Planted by streams of living water
Whose leaf is always green
Whose branches bring forth fruit in due season.

Many will find rest there and
Sing for joy in the shadow of His wings.
.

Psalm 1:3 AMP … And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams of water, ready to bring forth its fruit in its season; its leaf also shall not fade or wither; and everything he does shall prosper [and come to maturity].

Psalm 91:1 AMP … HE WHO dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].

Psalm 84:3-4 AMP … Yes, the sparrow has found a house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young–even Your altars, O Lord of hosts, my King and my God. Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are those who dwell in Your house and Your presence; they will be singing Your praises all the day long. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

Psalm 63:7 NASB … For You have been my help, and in the shadow of Your wings I sing for joy.
