….when it comes to faith.
So Little Faith
Matthew 17:20, NIV: “He replied, Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
Why is it that when faced with a task that exceeds our faith, it is often the task that comes under question and not our faith? For, in truth, we frequently believe that with God all things are practical–rather than possible. Who, or what, is it that tells us that a ministry won’t work because of budget constraints, or that certain people will not change and therefore aren’t worth witnessing to, or that spiritual peaks cannot be maintained? Where does it say in scripture that God provides up until the point where things go beyond our resources, abilities, or knowledge. Either all things are possible with God, or they are not. Either you believe ALL things are possible, or you don’t. On one hand, we have our almighty, eternal, steadfast and faithful God. On the other hand, we have our experience, tradition, and our own understanding. In what, or who, will we put our trust? And what can ever truly be done with so little faith?
