In the GODS WORD translation, Matthew 17:20 reads…Because you have so little faith. I can guarantee this truth: If your faith is the size of a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
Which means, it’s your lack of faith and laziness that limits your success.
Have you ever seen a mustard seed? What about a mountain? The difference in size is staggering, and the symbolism in this verse is almost too powerful to grasp.
So I continuously ask God to help me increase my faith and work ethic so I can improve and do my best at all times.
And I tell Him that I want to persevere, be diligent, and stay strong even during hard times.
I ask for hope and joy in my work and increased focus so I can overcome distractions and obstacles.
I ask faithfully and with humility. And then I start practicing—asking God to make the impossible, possible.
I go through this excercise every so often, but what if it was a daily routine? What if it was the norm? Where would I be? What would God show me? How would He use me? How many mountains would I move today?
I’m about to find out.
