Read: Matthew 17:14-20
Atoms, viruses, computer chips, etc. are not very big. Yet these little things can produce a great impact for good or for bad. Take faith for example. According to Jesus in Matt. 17:20, a mustard-seed amount of faith is enough to move mountains.
Oswald Chambers said, “Faith brings us into right relationship with God and gives God His opportunity. He frequently has to knock the bottom out of our experience to get us into contact with Himself. God wants you to understand it is a life of faith, and not a life of sentimental enjoyment of His blessings, that pleases Him. Faith by its very nature must be tried. And the real trial of faith is not that we find it difficult to trust God, but that God’s character has to be clear in our minds so that we remain true to God whatever He may do.”
In Job 13:15, Job says, “Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him.” This may be the most inspiring and challenging utterance of faith in the whole Bible. Even though we can’t see faith, or touch it, or hear it, we can’t live without it. Faith requires a commitment. It is meaningless to say, “I have faith in the bank,” unless you put your money there. In the same way, it is meaningless to say, “I have faith in God,” unless we trust in Him. Rest in Him and relax. Let us put our mustard-seed faith in a mighty God, and let us see Him move a mountain-like obstacle in our lives.
