”And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith.” Luke 17:5
Often times in life, we usually assume that the solution to life’s challenges is more faith or increased faith. And we say, if only God can help me to increase my faith, this will happen, that will happen. But if only we know that it’s not the size of the faith we have but the quality of the faith, irrespective of the size.
We say, if only I can have more faith, I will be able to deal with this or that situation. And we keep piling up excuses for our inactivities or inactions, hoping that one day, when we have an increased faith, the solution will be guaranteed. The solution is not in the size of the faith, it is in the quality of the faith no matter how small or big it is.
Jesus was instructing His disciples on how to forgive as many times as they are offended, but they thought it was because Jesus had a bigger fairh than them. Often times, we excuse our weaknesses by saying, ‘you know, that is Jesus, and I am not Jesus, so I cannot measure up.’ But here is Jesus saying, if only you had faith as little or tiny as the seed of mustard, you can do the impossible.
Many of us, including me pray for an increased faith so as to do something great. We assume to raise the dead, you need a combination of Pastor Adeboye’s faitha and that of Bishop Oyedepo to do such miracle. You’re wrong my friend. All you need is a faith as small as the mustard seed, and you can declare life back to thw dead.
Many think to overcome lustful desires, you need great faith, and that has been the majotlr reason why they’ve not been delivered. My friend, if only you had faith as small as muatard seed, you will live in victory over the circumstance ruling over you.
You might have gone through all manners of conflicting and difficult situations in life, some of which has defied scientific, logical and spiritual explanations, and you’ve concluded that only when you have an increased faith like Jesus’ faith will that situation be solved. My friend, if you had faith as small as mustard seed, all will be settled.
Let no man deceive you further, what you need is not an increased faith, but a quality faith in God no matter the size. And faith speaks, hence, speak in Faith. Jesus said in the next verse, “… if you had faith as a grain of mustard seed, you might say to the sycamine tree, Be plucked up by the root, and be planted in the sea, and it will obey you.” Lk 17:6.
Doesn’t that sound like impossible? To thw natural mind, yes. But truly scripture told us that,
1. For with God, nothing shall be impossible. Lk.1:37, and
2. … all things are possible to them that believe. Mark 9:23.
Please, never assume that what you need is an increment in your faith level, but putting into activeness your faith that’s becom8ng redundant. So, all you need is to have faith in God, speak to the situation, be assured of solution, and give thanks to God.
God bless you. Have a blessed day. Live Responsibly.
