Faith in Him, not you!

‘The disciples asked Jesus privately, “Why couldn’t we cast out that (boy’s) demon?” ” You didn’t have enough faith,” Jesus told them. “I assure you, even if you had faith 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: 19 – 20. This verse continues to be a challenge for me; a mustard seed, when planted in fertile soil, can produce a ten-foot bush within three months! How many times have we faced mountains and felt that our faith was small and insufficient? When the disciples felt the sting of failure over their inability to heal the boy, Jesus directed them to place their faith in Him rather than their own abilities. We often sing ‘It’s not about me, as if You should do things my way, You alone are God and I surrender to Your ways.’ My ongoing challenge is to stand on God’s promises and believe that in Him nothing is impossible. I love to hear the praise reports and find out what God has been doing let’s build our trust that in Him that all things are possible and believe that when we call upon His name He answers and moves.
