Topic: The Character Of The Mustard Seed Faith [Monday June 5, 2017]
Scripture: And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. Hebrews 11:6 (NIV).
Thought For The Day: The mustard-seed faith is the faith that is pregnant with a vision that is bigger than your current reality.
Having identified the mustard seed faith as the faith that moves mountain, it is important to identify the unique character features of the mustard seed.
Now, what is the character of the mustard seed?
- It is Alive and Active
The mustard seed carries life because it has the ability to germinate and grow. So, the mustard seed faith that moves mountain is the faith that is alive and active. The active and lively faith is the faith that stands on God’s Word (John 6:63).
- It is Pregnant with Greatness
Though the mustard seed is barely visible to the eyes when fully grown, it is the biggest among the herbs (Matthew 13:31-32).
This means that the mustard-seed faith is the faith that is pregnant with a vision that is bigger than your current reality. For example, you may be sleeping in an uncompleted building today but the mustard seed faith in you makes you see yourself in estates in New York, USA or in Victoria Island in Lagos, Nigeria.
Beloved, never allow your situation to limit your vision. You must refuse to allow your surroundings to limit your expectation. You may appear small but you must be pregnant with greatness.
Remember this: The mustard-seed faith is the faith that is pregnant with a vision that is bigger than your current reality.
- Ask God for a lively and active faith.
Refuse to allow your current situation limit your vision.
Prayer: O LORD, I ask for the grace to stay focused on my vision despite my current situation. Give me a lively and active faith, LORD, in Jesus’ Name.
