Day 12 - Nothing is Impossible With Faith in God

He 
replied, 
“Because 
you 
have 
so 
little 
faith. 
Truly 
I 
tell 
you, 
if 
you 
have 
 faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20

In 
this 
verse 
Jesus 
wasn’t 
pointing 
to 
a 
measurement 
of 
faith, 
as 
though 
 we 
could 
check 
our 
faith 
by 
stepping 
on 
a 
scale 
and 
claiming 
that 
the 
 extra 
weight 
comes 
from 
extra 
faith. 
(Wouldn’t 
that 
would 
be 
nice?) 
 Immediately 
after 
saying 
the 
disciples 
didn’t 
have 
enough 
faith, 
Jesus 
 told 
them 
that 
even 
faith 
as 
small 
as 
a 
tiny 
mustard 
seed 
would 
be 
 enough 
to 
move 
a 
mountain. 
Obviously 
it 
was 
not 
the 
amount 
of 
faith 
 but 
the 
focus 
of 
the 
faith.

Earlier 
in 
Matthew 
17 
the 
disciples 
had 
tried 
to 
cast 
out 
a 
demon 
without 
 success. 
Perhaps 
they 
had 
tried 
to 
cast 
it 
out 
depending 
on 
what 
they 
 considered 
their 
own 
power. 
Whatever 
occurred, 
their 
faith 
must 
have 
 been 
in 
the 
wrong 
place. 
When 
they 
put 
their 
faith 
in 
the 
right 
place—in 
 the 
all-powerful 
God—then 
even 
a 
tiny 
grain 
of 
faith 
would 
be 
enough. 
 Nothing 
is 
impossible 
when 
our 
faith 
is 
in 
God.

This 
kind 
of 
faith 
moves 
mountains 
and 
makes 
all 
things 
possible. 
At 
 times 
we 
may 
feel 
that 
we 
have 
great 
faith;; 
at 
other 
times 
we 
may 
feel 
 that 
our 
faith 
is 
suffering. 
In 
the 
end, 
however, 
if 
even 
that 
suffering 
faith 
 is 
in 
God, 
then 
it 
is 
enough 
to 
do 
the 
impossible!

God’s Promise to Me
•If 
you 
have 
faith 
in 
me 
as 
small 
as 
a 
mustard 
seed, 
then 
it 
is 
enough 
 to 
move 
mountains 
and 
do 
the 
impossible.

My Prayer to God
You 
promise, 
Lord, 
that 
with 
faith 
in 
you 
nothing 
is 
impossible. 
Thank 
 you 
for 
being 
the 
God 
of 
the 
possible. 
Help 
me 
to 
remember 
that 
my 
 faith, 
even 
small 
and 
weak, 
can 
do 
great 
things 
for 
you.
