Mustard Seed Faith

He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20 (ESV)

“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

A mustard seed is so small it is nearly unbelievable that Jesus said that faith that big can move a mountain. What stops us from moving mountains whether literally or figuratively speaking, is doubt. It immediately comes as soon as you see a situation bigger than you. It takes away your faith and therefore your victory. Every time doubt arises in your mind you need to silence it with the word of God and remind yourself of what God has done in the past.

Because you are not yet taking God seriously, said Jesus. “The simple truth is that if you had a mere kernel of faith, a poppy seed, say, you would tell this mountain, “Move!’ and it would move. There is nothing you would be able to tackle.” (Message Translation)

If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mulberry tree, “Be uprooted and planted in the sea, and it would obey you (Luke 17:6).

If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mulberry tree, “Be uprooted and planted in the sea, and it would obey you (Luke 17:6).

 Jesus proposed another parable to them. “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that a person took and sowed in a field. It is the smallest of all the seeds, yet when full-grown it is the largest of plants. It becomes a large bush, and the ‘birds of the sky come and dwell in its branches’” (Matthew 13:31-32).

There is absolutely nothing that God cannot do through faith.  There is nothing that can withstand it. But he needs your faith to do it. The magnitude of that tiny seed, when spoken in faith will move mountains.

Where there is a tiny bit of faith, it can grow to immense proportions, spreading its influence far and wide and benefiting those who it comes into contact with.

A seed does nothing until it is planted. Your faith does nothing until you plant it, how, by speaking the Word. That activate your faith.

After that, it can overcome obstacles and even move rocks through its continuous expansion and growth. Seeds are persistent, and they never give up.

Your faith in Jesus is what the devil is after because taking your faith means taking your inheritance. Without faith, we cannot see God and possess our inheritance, remember without faith it is impossible to please God. You must believe that God’s word is true to the end and protect your faith to the end. If your faith has been failing or it used to be stronger, it is okay, you can build it back up again, through the word of God. Romans 10:17 says Faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of God.

The woman with the issue of blood if she had not stepped out on her mustard seed faith, she would not have been healed. Luke 8:43-48. She was persistence. Due to the greatness of the crowd, it took determination and desperation for this woman to press through the mass of people to just simply touch Jesus. He wanted the woman and the crowd to know that His garments had not caused her to be healed, but the strength of her faith. That same faith in you begins to move mountains, whatever your mountain is, financial needs, relationship needs.

If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mulberry tree, “Be uprooted and planted in the sea, and it would obey you (Luke 17:6).
