The Simplest and Greatest Things: FAITH

Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could get faith like gas at the Gas Station?  I’d be there every day.

Faith is hard. You can’t touch it, you can’t see it, you just have to believe it! The good news is that God said we just need the size of a mustard seed.

Jesus replied: It is because you don’t have enough faith! But I can promise you this. If you had faith no larger than a mustard seed, you could tell this mountain to move from here to there. And it would. Everything would be possible for you. Matthew 17:20-21 (CEV)

 I admire people that have such a deep faith and live it. They give me encouragement when my faith is the mustard seed size. I enjoy reading about people from history who lived and breathed it. I read books and articles of those in present-day who testify to wonderful things God is doing.

Truth is, it is accessible to everyone who has faith in Jesus Christ from the size of a mustard seed to a mountain-size trust.

When I try and do it on my own, it is a flop, but when I come to my Heavenly Father and say I need help to determine what to do and ask for help…He’s got me covered.

 God will bless you, if you don’t give up when your faith is being tested. He will reward you with a glorious life, just as he rewards everyone who loves him. James 1:2

Spending time with God regularly by reading and praying will help us build up our faith.  He is the gas who can fill our faith tank. He longs for us to trust Him and begin to have faith even the size of the mustard seed.

He is not the image of a genie in a bottle, or the on-demand television programs we have; though He can help instantly.  He will always be constant, faithful and true. When you let your heart beat with His, He will reveal and help you in your faith walk.

Hebrews 11 talked of those who walked the walk of faith.  Abraham, Issac, Moses, Rahab, David, Gideon and Samuel to name a few.  They were human just like us and life was filled with hard challenges and mistakes. However, what they had was faith that God would see them through.

When my burden is heavy and the road seems way too bumpy and unending, having faith in God, pushes me through. It was times when I got a much-needed call from a friend, and positive email, a gift of money to help at just the right moment, and my child was helped with an issue at school. God will for you too.

He will help in your faith walk even when:

  • You don’t believe God wants to help
  • You prayer list seems to be unanswered and hitting the ‘outskirts of heaven’
  • You have feelings of being spiritually dry
  • Life feels blah and uneventful
  • Life is so busy and crazy you don’t have time to even think
  • You used to have faith and are afraid to believe again

Let God be your Guide and help you with your mustard-see faith.  God does work behind the scenes of our life we have no idea about. I can guarantee you will be amazed and that seed will become bigger and bigger each step of the way!

Well, that sums up the saying on my plaque. It will hang on my wall but it will be my choice to live out each word to live a life of not only survival but success.  HOPE, LOVE, JOY, & FAITH. These define simple yet profound life qualities that will be great if we live each word out.  Will you join me?

OPEN YOUR TOOL BOX:

  • Ask God to help you start out with mustard seed size faith.
  • What can you ask God for this week?
  • Read Hebrews 11 and then reference them to their faith stories in the Old Testament. A great study!

YOU CAN DO THIS!
