Matthew 17:19
“- - - 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.”

What is the most difficult thing you are facing in your life right now? What task or tribulation is so great you feel like it is ready to flatten you out? Who is looming over you ready to do you harm? What mountain threatens to collapse on you?
Faith is not measured by the bushel, but by the seed.  Let me repeat that again: Faith is not measured by the bushel, but by the seed. All God asks of us is a tiny seed of faith and He steps in to do the miracle we need.
The Lord is eager to bless those who open their hearts to His blessing. We sometimes feel that the challenges we face are too great for God to handle. That is a lot of baloney! Nothing is impossible with God! Even the disciples of Jesus felt they were not up to the task of working miracles.
Before we are too critical of these disciples, what about the situations in our lives?  Do we have mustard-seed size faith to turn our problems into the opportunities for God to bring about His deliverance?  Are we committed to trust in His strength and wisdom rather than trying to do things ourselves?  By faith we can say: "Pass the mustard, please!" 

May God richly bless you as you bless others by your words and actions!
