The Mustard Seed

Matt. 17:20 “You don’t have enough faith,”Jesus told them. “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.

Luke 17:6 The Lord answered, “If you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, ‘May you be uprooted and thrown into the sea,’ and it would obey you!

Do you ever struggle with your faith? Do you ever look around and think “I wish I had as much faith as _______?” I must admit there are times that I struggle with keeping faith about certain issues and situations. I know I’m not alone in this. Just this week I have had multiple conversations with friends about this very thing. BUT, as we see in the two scriptures above, if we have faith the size of a mustard seed we can see amazing things happen!! Truthfully that’s not big faith!!!

A mustard seed is between 1-2 millimeters in size and can produce a tree up to 20 feet high!! Isn’t that amazing?? Something so tiny can produce such a huge thing.

So, the next time you feel like your faith is small remember what The Word says about the mustard seed. As long as you have even the tiniest bit of faith nothing is impossible!!!
