*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*
*WHEN LITTLE IS MUCH.*
Matt 17:20 *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.*
*Insight and Highlight.*
When faith is needed, a little of it is more than enough.
In God's Kindgom, a little faith is more than enough to please God.
In Matt 14:28, Peter was not sunk in the water by his weight. He was not drowned by the boisterous wind but by his lack of faith.
In Matt 8: 24-26, when Jesus was asleep in the boat, the wind did not wake Him up, it was the people's lack of faith that woke Him up.
There are a few things we can learn.
First, this passage goes to tell us that some or most of the problems we find ourselves may not be circumstantial but personal.
Second it tells us that we must never estimate what is available with us when dealing with God. God sees you and He knows you. There are times when our little is counted much before God. In Rev 3:8, Jesus says little strength can be strong enough to deliver us our much needed miracles from God.
Third, Matt 17:20 tells us to exercise every spiritual weapon at our disposal to gain access to what has eluded us.
It could be the faith to pray when you do not feel like praying, the faith to keep on trusting God when there is no physical proof or evidence of anything He had done on your request.
Fourth, it tells us that some things that we consider as least may be what Heaven considers worthy to God.
Fifth, there are times, God requires our participation. In receiving from Him. Our cooperation with Him is often a condition to receiving from Him.
Sixth, it tells us how faith is valuable to God, Heb 11:6.
You have faith, but you will not know you have it until you have excercised it.
Put your faith to use today!
When faith is required, to do nothing about it may be most harmful to our requests and petitions to Him.
*Call to Word action.*
Faith is made available to us all but not everyone is available to put faith into use.
*The Christian clarion duty.*
A little faith is better than no faith at all.
Lord, let my little faith be enough to save me, in Jesus name.
Good morning all and have a blessed day.
God bless you.
