Mountain-Moving Faith

Matthew 17:19,20 Then the disciples came to Jesus alone. They said, “We tried to force the demon out of the boy, but we could not. Why were we not able to make the demon go out?” Jesus answered, “You were not able to make the demon go out, because your faith is too small. Believe me when I tell you, if your faith is only as big as a mustard seed you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. You will be able to do anything.”

Faith is a funny thing. We all want to have lots of faith, but on the other hand, we never want to be in a position where we have to use it … because those times when you need lots of faith, tend to be uncomfortable, uncertain times.

I know many a Christian who firmly believes that they don’t have enough faith to go and ask God for the things they need; for the help they need; for the miracle they need.

It turns out that these people have more than enough faith to believe that they don’t have enough faith, but not enough faith to believe that their loving, powerful God could give them the breakthrough that they so desperately need.

It sounds crazy, but that’s exactly what’s going on.

Now, I’m one of these crazy nut-cases who takes Jesus at His Word. In other words, if Jesus said it, it’s not just true, it’s actually true for me.

So … what did Jesus say about how much faith you and I need to overcome a whopping great obstacle that’s in our road?

Matthew 17:19,20 Then the disciples came to Jesus alone. They said, “We tried to force the demon out of the boy, but we could not. Why were we not able to make the demon go out?” Jesus answered, “You were not able to make the demon go out, because your faith is too small. Believe me when I tell you, if your faith is only as big as a mustard seed you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. You will be able to do anything.”

It turns out that it’s not about the size of your faith, but the size of the One in whom you believe.

Question is: Will you take Him at His Word?

Because that’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
