If you have the faith of a mustard seed, you will say to the mountain, “Move from here to there,” and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you!
- Matthew 17:20
Have you ever seen how tiny a seed is?
It’s so small, and yet, God’s Word tells us that a little faith (as small as a seed) will move one of the most significant things on the planet—a mountain!
What does that tell us about our Lord and Savior? He desires our belief and trust, and He is mighty and powerful.
Life is difficult. It is full of opportunities to trust the Lord. We each have struggles, hardships, trials, and uncertainties.
However, God is trustworthy, loving, powerful, and always available. We can believe Him to do what needs to be done.
He will meet our needs and work through the things in our lives that seem like mountains to us.
How is that possible? Because when we trust God and look to Him, our situation becomes less critical, and He becomes more important.
Our pain serves a purpose.
Every trial we face strengthens us so that we are better prepared for life’s challenges.
Through each challenge, God grows our faith.
And that faith produces a depth in our character.
Out of that pain and suffering springs forth goodness, joy, hope, and blessing.
Prayer: God, I can’t see anything but the mountains today! Please help me to see you. I trust you and believe in you. Amen.
