Nothing Is Impossible With Faith in God


Bible Promises

Day 10 – Nothing Is Impossible With Faith in God
================================================
[Jesus] 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.”
Matthew
17:20

In this verse Jesus wasn’t pointing to a measurement of faith, as
though we
could check our faith by stepping on a scale and claiming that the
extra
weight comes from extra faith. (Wouldn’t that would be nice?)
Immediately
after saying the disciples didn’t have enough faith, Jesus told
them that even
faith as small as a tiny mustard seed would be enough to move
a mountain.
Obviously it was not the amount of faith but the focus of the
faith.

Earlier in Matthew 17 the disciples had tried to cast out a demon
without
success. Perhaps they had tried to cast it out depending on what
they
considered their own power. Whatever occurred, their faith must have
been in
the wrong place. When they put their faith in the right place—in
the
all-powerful God—then even a tiny grain of faith would be enough. Nothing
is
impossible when our faith is in God.

This kind of faith moves
mountains and makes all things possible. At times we
may feel that we have
great faith; at other times we may feel that our faith
is suffering. In the
end, however, if even that suffering faith is in God,
then it is enough to do
the impossible!

God’s Promise to Me
===================
If you have
faith in me as small as a mustard seed, then it is enough to move
mountains
and do the impossible.

My Prayer to God
================
You promise, Lord, that with faith in you nothing is impossible. Thank you for
being the God of the possible. Help me to remember that my faith, even
small
and weak, can do great things for you.
