Matthew 17:20: 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.”
This verse is often my saving grace. I know I have faith that Jesus is real, and that he died on the cross and rose again. I know there is life after this (perhaps I’ll write that article next). But I struggle with all of these concepts from time to time. I even question them. Yet, it is the size of a mustard seed at all times, and that is my hope. That is my saving grace.
God knew how he made us. He made us with doubt. And when I do challenge the word, I always get a great answer. When I doubt, I pray, and God moves. But I have never doubted God in a way of walking away or thinking it’s all some hoax. When I have found myself slipping to that place I have pride that I don’t want to be tricked.
But then I remember “faith of a mustard seed” and I relax. Almost as if it calms the panic. I remember that….. and knowing that eternity exists (yeah, I’ll write that next). God wouldn’t give us this passage if he didn’t know we would need it. Therefore, don’t fear in your faith (or lack thereof). Grow confident that it’s enough because God tells us that is the case.
