Topic: The Dogged And Rugged Faith [Wednesday June 7, 2017]
Scripture: And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. Matthew 17:20
Thought For The Day: The mustard-seed faith is the faith that is dogged and determined; the faith that refuses to give way, give up, give out or give in.
We have been studying the features of the mustard seed which Jesus likened to the faith that moves mountains. This is necessary in order to develop the faith that moves the mountains of our lives. We have noted that the mustard seed is active and alive.
Another striking characteristic of the mustard seed is that it is deeply rooted when planted; the mustard plant is not easily blown away by the wind.
The mustard-seed faith, therefore, is the faith that is dogged and determined; the faith that refuses to give way, give up, give out, give in or be trampled into uselessness; that is ruggedity.
When this faith is in operation in your life, when you believe God for a thing, you don’t shift your grounds; you press on until you get Divine intervention.
Kenneth Hagin once told the story of how he cast a devil out of someone, and after a while, the devil re-possessed the person. He returned and told the devil, ‘Devil, I cast you out, and I have not changed my mind. Now get out!’ Immediately, the devil checked out. That was rugged faith in operation.
Beloved, make up your mind to have no alternative to your answer; it is either you get it or you get it. This is the mountain moving faith.
Remember this: The mustard-seed faith is the faith that is dogged and determined; the faith that refuses to give way, give up or give out.
- Make up your mind to develop a rugged faith.
Act on God’s revealed Word.
Prayer: O LORD, give me the grace to develop mountain-moving faith. Help me never to accept any alternative to the answer that I desire in prayer, LORD, in Jesus’ Name.
