God Grows Our Faith

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. (Matthew 17:20)
Have you ever seen how tiny a seed is?
It’s so small, and yet, God’s Word tells us that a little faith (as small as a seed) will move one of the most significant things on the planet—a mountain!
What does that tell us about our Lord and Savior? He desires our belief and trust, and He is mighty and powerful.
Life is difficult. It is full of opportunities to trust the Lord. We each have struggles, hardships, trials, and uncertainties.
However, God is trustworthy, loving, powerful, and always available. We can believe Him to do what needs to be done.
He will meet our needs and work through the things in our lives that seem like mountains to us.
How is that possible? Because when we trust God and look to Him, our situation becomes less critical, and He becomes more important.
Our pain serves a purpose.
Every trial we face strengthens us so that we are better prepared for life’s challenges.
Through each challenge, God grows our faith.
And that faith produces a depth in our character.
Out of that pain and suffering springs forth goodness, joy, hope, and blessing.
Prayer: God, I can’t see anything but the mountains today! Please help me to see you. I trust you and believe in you. Amen.  
I love this devotion, “our pain serves a purpose”. Think on that today.
Have a beautiful and uplifting day in The Lord!
