Parable About The Mustard Seed"
Jesus spoke about faith to His disciples and told
them "You don't have enough faith. I tell you the truth,
if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you
could say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,'
and it would move. Nothing would be impossible."
(Matthew 17:20 NLT)
In this parable about the mustard seed, Jesus is sharing
an important idea with us: faith begins in seed form.
Faith in God is planted in the soil of our hearts and
cultivated by the Spirit of God, and over time, it
produces joy, peace, humility, fulfillment, power, and
every other rich quality of the character of God. Faith
is the source of these blessings, and prayer is the way
that the source gets into the soil of our
hearts. Through the eyes of faith, we donít just see our
prayers for what they are when weíre praying them; we
see the potential of what they can become when God
answers them. Great prayer reveals great faith, and
great faith releases great prayers. Faith in God will
take you out of your comfort zone, challenge you, and
lead you onto unknown paths that you have never traveled
before. Itís not predictable or easy, but itís worth the
Perhaps instead of seeds of faith, youíve had seeds of
doubt and fear planted in your heart. Pray for the
Spirit of God to uproot those things today and activate
your faith through prayer.
