Matthew 17:20 says ‘…Jesus told them. “For if you had faith even as small as a tiny mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move!’ and it would go far away. Nothing would be impossible.’ (TLB)
Yet, when we are faced with challenges or things just don’t seem to work out, we resign ourselves to thinking that faith doesn’t work.
Faith is like a muscle, the more you use it the better it gets. There is so much power contained in this verse. Consider dedicating yourself to pray in faith for a list of things where you need something to change or shift. Do it for a month and see what happens. Your faith will breakthrough on something. You have to be persistent. Don’t give up until you see something shift. Wouldn’t it be fantastic to see the power Jesus spoke of alive and working today within us.
Faith is like a muscle, the more you use it, the better it gets.
Lord, as I come to you with my needs, help me see them from your perspective and pray for the outcomes needed in faith. Amen.
Make a list of needs, then determine to set aside time each day for a month, you will be amazed at the results.
