Mat 17: 14-21 “20 So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief;[d] for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.”
The medical and historical condition of the boy, the condition of his father, the sarcasm of the crowd all gathered to become a mountain. Our Lord says the reason that there is no miracle is because of their unbelief. Unbelief is a tool, which will build or gain the knowledge of the world greatly and quickly on fear and or commandments of men. Faith is a tool, which will build or gain the knowledge of Christ quickly on grace.
Many times, we have wondered whether we have faith to a size of a mustard seed. If we don’t even have this small faith, what is that we are believing in Jesus Christ? Is our belief that He is the Son of God is that small smaller than mustard seed?
It is written that ‘If you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to the mountain’. The words of faith are uttered against the mountain. The knowledge of the world is what we see in an issue, the natural reasoning, doctor’s opinions, friend’s suggestions etc… When we shrink this knowledge to a level of mustard seed through your faith, then the knowledge of Christ will be manifested in your words and deeds as a mountain. You will receive a certification from the Lord as a man or woman with great faith. When you pray in the name of Lord Jesus Christ, put aside this knowledge of the world and place your trust on Christ Who is the Author and Finisher of faith. If we do this then any issue like a mountain will be turned to a mustard seed through your words of faith. Can we practice this kind of faith in our life, if we do, then God will be pleased through His Son.
