Faith as a mustard seed


Luke 17:6:  And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.

Every problem, whether big or small just needs faith as small as a grain of mustard seed.  The sycamine tree was a huge tree with its roots deep into the earth.  It was a very difficult tree to be eradicated.  Jesus was teaching the disciples that no matter how big or how deep the problem or a case is… if we have faith as little as a grain of a mustard seed, and if we command our problems to pull out, they will.

Size of a problem doesn’t matter but your size of faith matters.  Where or in whom you have placed your faith plays a paramount role in casting out every mammoth problem that rise up against you.  It is not the base of the problem that we should be addressing by faith, but the root of the issue.  When we use faith against problems as big or as deep as a sycamine tree, they will be uprooted by its roots and never grow or be shown again in our life.

God appreciates when we operate in faith.  It is also said that without faith it is impossible to please God.  Those who come to God must know that He lives and that He rewards everyone who diligently seek Him.  We need to show that we have faith not when things are all good but when unexpected things happen and when our faith is put to question.  Put your faith in God and not on the problems surrounding you.  Never take your eyes off Jesus.
