And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief, for verily I say unto you, if ye 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 unto you – Matt. 17 : 20
As you pray, what is the level of your faith? Do you have faith that God can visit your situation? Do you believe in His power?
Jesus used the size of the mustard seed to describe the kingdom of God during His teachings in Matt 13 : 31 – 32; Mark 4 : 30 – 32 and Luke 13 : 18 – 19. When you plant this seed, it will produce a big plant which can take the weight of the birds. Meaning if you can have faith as the size of that seed, you will do great and mighty things to the glory of His name.
The bible say that without faith it is impossible to please God – Hebrews 11 : 6. When you are able to please Him, He will open His book of remembrance and show up in your situation.
Your faith cannot increase if your strength and ability is in you. When you now tell God that you have no power on your own that He is your strength and He is your wisdom by inviting him and hand over that situation to Him, then He will prove to you that He is the Only One that can do what no man can do. Most times we feel that some situations are too small to hand over to Him but remember that the hair on your head are numbered – Luke 12:7.
Also, we think at times that we don’t have to invite Him into our lives and take care of everything about us because He created us and He knows everything about us. The bible says that, The heaven, even the heavens are the Lord’s, but the earth hath He given to the children of men – Psalm 115 : 16. Therefore, in everything that we do, we must invite Him and hand it over to Him. You cannot invite somebody you don’t trust into your house. Because we trust Him that He is our Father, He is our Creator, He is our provider, He is our protector, He is our Saviour, He is our all in all.
During one of the teachings of Jesus Christ, the apostles said to Him increase our faith – Luke 17 : 5 – 6. Meaning, if you don’t have faith, beg God to increase your faith and because of His love for you, He will surely do that.
