Food for thought….Miraculous Faith

miraculous faith

My alarm goes off and I hear the beginning of the song play out “if you have faith the size of a mustard seed…” My eyes are barely cracked open at this point but the words penetrate my being. A mountain. Impenetrable. Vast. Solid. A barrier. It stands between you and faith. It’s an opportunity or its a discouragement. It all comes down to your view. Lord, we have been knocked down by life’s mountains because of our unbelief.

But you remind us in Matthew 17:20 “And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.” The conversation prior to this verse was between Jesus and the disciples. They were unable to cast out a demon because of unbelief. There was a need in this poor man’s life. But the disciples were not effective,….unbelief held them. JESUS rebukes them and casts the demon out of the man. We often rail and comment on how pitiful the disciples were. They just couldn’t seem to get it right. Yet, we are in the same boat as they. We have people all around us that are bound and needing the liberty of the Lord and we lack the faith to pray as CHRIST did. Lord, rebuke us as you did the disciples and bring us to true faith, active faith, effective faith, miraculous faith!
