Faith – as small as a mustard seed

That’s it. A mustard seed! That is what God wants us to have. I don’t know if you have ever seen a mustard seed but it is not big.. at all. It amazes me that this all we need but it’s such a challenge to achieve.

I love the story of the Centurion in Matthew 8:5 -13. Here we have a man who is greatly concerned about his sick servant. He comes to Jesus for help and Jesus willing stated “I will come and heal him.” BUT, the man refused revealing that he to has authority like Jesus (did you catch that, we have authority over the powers of evil and sickness just like Jesus). The man said just SPEAK a word and my servant will be healed. Jesus himself was astonished by this man’s faith; he stated that he had not found such great faith with anyone in Israel. Jesus told the man to go and it would be done as he believed and his servant was healed that very same hour (And he did it, SUDDENLY!)

Sometimes we look for some huge grand entrance, fireworks and cannons for what we are asking God to do for us. And I’m not saying that it can’t be done that way but all we really need to do is believe, exercise our faith and ask Jesus to speak a word. Once we do all these things it will be done according to our faith. We only need mustard size faith but just imagine what God would do if we increased our faith, what if we had watermelon seed faith. I heard an Elder say it this way one time “you got to see it before you see it!” We walk by faith, not by sight. We have to see our blessings, miracles and breakthroughs with our spiritual eyes. If we continue to look through the natural we will never accomplish all God has in store for us.
So, like the centurion man – GO and whatever you are believing God for use your faith and it will be done as you have believed!
