"Faith as a grain of mustard seed..." Matthew 17:20
Contributed by a Man of God who wishes to remain anonymous, October 31, 2017
Jesus said, "...If you shall have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, remove hence to yonder place and it shall remove and nothing shall be impossible to you." Matthew 17:20 KJV
That certainly is a very small amount, for a mustard seed is very small indeed. What an amazing thing for such a small measure of faith!
But, we must also think of the people... who don't read the Bible; people... who have no relationship with God; people... who have no idea of the magnitude of God's grace, love or forgiveness; people... who have no idea that Jesus died for the remission of their sins, so that they might have everlasting life.
I would think that if these people have a doubt the size of a mustard seed, it is preventing them from doing many, many, things that really matter. For if a mustard seed of faith can do so much good, then that same amount of doubt... a seed of unbelief - put in your mind by Satan, can keep you from doing good things that would benefit someone.
A mustard seed is a very, very small measure compared to many other things.
So, are you going to put your faith in the Lord or let Satan put the seed of doubt in your mind?
The choice is yours and yours alone.
Are you going to believe in God's Holy Word and have hope, or believe in Satan's lies and have no hope for a better life?
It is my prayer that we, as a people, look closely at how we are living and choose faith. It is God's truth that faith, even as small as a mustard will move that mountain.
Nothing is impossible when we believe!
Praise God from Whom ALL Blessings come! Blessing to ALL in Jesus' Name.
