Where's Your Faith

"... I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you." Matthew 17:20

Do you ever wonder, "How can I get faith as a mustard seed?" It's easy to trust tangible things that we can see with our eyes. We 'trust' these to be true. But when our situation calls us to believe what we can't see, then we are called to move beyond 'trust' to 'Faith.' But, isn't trust the same thing as faith? Not necessarily. Trust is found in what we see, faith is found in what you can not see. Where is your heart when you are pressed to dig deep to find your to faith? Doubt is in your thoughts, faith is in your heart. It is in your heart that the Holy Spirit resides. This places your faith in God. As Christians, we all share a common faith in our Savior, and in His promises to answer our prayers. Doubts crop up when we allow human thoughts to diminish the divine power of God. We need to move our faith from our head to our heart. It places all faith on God, rather than on man. It is resolved, unwavering, unquestioning. Discover for yourself the incredible power that God has given you. Place your faith in Jesus and draw from the infinite riches of His Mercy and Love.

  1. Awesome post Sissy! And just think about this...the grain of a mustard seed is very tiny meaning we don't need big faith, just a little faith and God can move mountains!
