Matthew 17:20 NIV - He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
These are the words of Jesus, our Savior Himself. He says that faith the size of a mustard seed (which is only 1 to 2 millimeters) is enough. Even with an amount of faith that may seem small to us, with God, this is all we need to move mountains. Wow.
I really want that to sink in: Even with faith the size of a mustard seed, we can move mountains.
Although it’s a small sentence, it holds a lot of power.
Have you ever wondered why things aren’t going your way? You prayed with all of your might and still no prevail? While prayer is a wonderful way to communicate with and bond with God, what we also need to do is have faith. And guess what; it only takes a little bit.
God says that with faith, nothing is impossible; in other words, all things are possible with just a little faith.
You may be wondering what I’m trying to say to you. If nothing else, remember that God sees our hearts. He knows our true intentions, when and why we pray to Him (whether that be all the time or just when things aren’t going our way), and how much faith we truly have.
He hears our prayers, all the time, but He also knows what’s inside our hearts. He knows if we really believe that with Him, anything is possible.
He Himself said to us that mustard seed faith can move mountains. He says to us that a little faith goes a long way.
