YOU HAVE ALL THE FAITH YOU NEED
disciples once asked him to increase their faith. They felt
that their faith was not up to the task. You may feel the same
way. Your faith seems too small to have an impact on the
monumental challenges that litter the landscape of your life.
You wish you had a large amount of faith so you could make big
things happen. You act as if faith is a commodity, and if you
somehow had more, you could turn your life around. Although it
may seem that bigger is better, you really don't need to worry
about the size of your faith.
Faith isn't about size. Jesus said if you had faith the size of
a mustard seed, you could move mountains. Jesus was saying that
faith doesn't come in small, medium, or large sizes. Faith is
either present or absent. If it's absent, your life is full of
limitations, and you are stuck in Nowhere Land. If it's
present, you can move mountains.
You never need to worry if you have enough faith to move
mountains. Any faith is enough to start moving in a positive
direction. You will always have sufficient faith to be the best
you can be and do the best you can do.
Jesus said that faith makes it possible to move mountains.
Moving mountains is exciting stuff. The problem is there are
so many mountains that seem to be staying right where they are.
If it was up to us, moving mountains would be ninety-nine
percent faith and one percent hard work. When we encountered a
mountain, we would have a chat with God about how the mountain
needed to be moved, and if He gave us the go ahead, we would
exercise our faith, and the mountain would disappear into the
sea. In a few effortless minutes, another mountain would bite
the dust. We could move our mountains without lifting a
finger. Unfortunately, that's not how faith works.
In the real world, moving mountains is ten percent faith and
ninety percent hard work. Faith tells you it's possible, and
hard work makes it happen. When Jesus said your faith could
move mountains, he didn't say how long it would take or how many
people would help you. It may take years to move your
mountains. Nevertheless, the mountains will move if you get out
your shovel and start working.
Mountains don't move in an instant; they move one shovel full at
a time. When you ask God to move your mountain, God hands you a
shovel and tells you to start digging. When you lift your first
shovel of dirt, you instantly become a mover of mountains.
