Mustard and mountains

"If you have faith as a mustard seed..." Matt 17:20

Water is the molecule of life. It seems so easy to manipulate it as a liquid. It'll take the shape of whatever cup you pour it in. But water is one of the strongest forces on the planet. The oceans relentlessly pound the continents, floods both nourish and devastate the fields, and rivers have carved out the greatest valley's and canyons for eons. All around us we see that our world is not only shaped by water, its also totally dependent on it; our earth is after all the 'blue planet'. So imagine how much energy is stored behind a dam. These walls keep one of the most powerful substances on earth contained. But the tiniest crack in the dam wall can unleash the entire fury of energy behind it. Likewise, faith - which is, knowing that what you don't see is really there and being assured that your hopes will happen - can seem so pointless to many yet it is a powerful force that has always molded mankind. By faith in God, kingdoms have fallen, fires were quenched, the weak became strong, wars were won and the dead were raised to life (Heb 11:33-35). Sometimes our hearts, weighed down by unbelief and incredulity, are like dams keeping our faith heaped up, deep within its recesses. Jesus said that if all we could do is let a trickle of faith through - just by opening a hole the size of small seed to let faith flow through our dams of doubt - mountains would be moved with only a word! Jesus is the author and perfecter of your faith. In fact, His faith is working in you. You have a limitless supply of an unshakable assurance of God's promises. This coming year, start to let your heart believe the good news and see how you too will shape and mold your world for good!
