“So Jesus said to them, …for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.” (Matthew 17:20)
I have quoted this Bible verse so many times especially in prayer. I have also shared it with so many people while encouraging them. It makes me want to dare to dream bigger, just knowing that my God cannot be limited. However, more than half of those times I have wished and spoken the words; but not believed.
This is what I mean; many times we speak the words and even pray them but we don’t believe them. We know that what God says is true and He is a miracle working God but our actions and choices speak otherwise. Spiritually speaking, faith is believing what God says is true, believing that God is able and acting like it. One needs to be daring to believe what they cannot see. That is why in Hebrews 11:1 faith is described as “confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”
Today I pray that God will increase our faith, that we will dare to believe and walk by faith. I pray that it shall not just be about quoting scripture to look good, but we shall live the scripture we speak. In whatever situation, we shall dare believe in our all powerful God. Dear Lord, help us to dare our faith. May we daily believe that your word is true. May we dare to be kind, to be loving, to be patient, to be righteous, to wait on God and to believe.
