Mustard Seed Faith

5 05 2014



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.” Matthew 17:20 NLT


God requires us to put our trust fully in Him. Filling our hearts and minds with His promises of love, protection and provision leaves no space for doubt to take root in our lives. Our scripture describes faith, even the size of a mustard seed as extremely powerful. A mustard seed is round, yellow and incredibly small. It is also hard and seemingly impenetrable. It is a solid seed and when planted it has almost immediate results that grow into a large plant. Our passage today is a reminder of the power within us if we choose to have faith. Through faith we can invest our confidence and expectation in God. We can plant our mustard seed faith and nurture its growth. We can give our faith room to grow and to thrive through meditating on His Word and surrounding ourselves with testimonies of His goodness. If we have solid faith, even on a small scale we can have powerful results.

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17
