Do you realize the impact of a little on a lot?


I think it comes down to perspective. Imagine that you are facing a huge situation that you need to take care of. Imagine you have a little bit of faith, say the size of a mustard seed, in God. This is where my math brain kicks in and shows how even that little bit of faith when multiplied or combined with the power of God that is infinite, means it is infinite. Anything positive, no matter how small, times infinity equals infinity. So when we look at this huge situation we are facing from the perspective of our faith times God’s power, all things are possible.

We see this from Mark 9:23 when we read the words of Jesus that say: “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.

God’s math is incredible! God is the God of the multiplication! God goes beyond addition into multiplication so that 1+1 is greater than 2.

So next time an obstacle comes your way, change your focus from how big your problem is to how big your God is and then with the faith you can muster up, give the situation up to God and believe that He will be true to His Word because we love Him and are being called according to His purposes and so He will work all things together for good, even taking what the enemy meant for evil and turn it for good!

Mountain moving Faith


MEMORY VERSE OF THE DAY:

‘So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, 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. ‘

Matthew 17:20

POINTS FROM THE DEVOTIONAL:
  • Can you envision the metaphor explained in today’s verse?
  • Are you able to grasp the magnitude of this spiritual principle?
  • Remember the context of a farming culture and how powerful this truth would be to and for them.
  • The smallest of seeds they would plant would be the mustard seed.
  • This seed in time would become one of the largest plants in their garden.
  • Like the mustard seed, God can help our faith grow tall and strong!
  • Jesus let’s us know it can grow strong enough to move mountains!
  • Jesus let’s us know that no matter how big the problem seems, with faith we can get through it, over it, and even around it, and when needed have it picked up and moved out of the way.
  • So let’s believe and trust in God! Let’s be filled with faith!
  • Let’s see how as our faith grows all that God is able to do in and through our lives!
  • Let’s watch God move mountains for us and for our loved ones because of our faith in Him!
  • We are works in progress and even those who have great faith today had to go through a journey and allow God to build their faith and show them miracles that go them to where they are today!
  • So let’s plant that little see of faith into our lives and allow God to water it, weed it, fertilize it, and make it grow strong and healthy!

DISCUSSION TOPICS FROM TODAY’S DEVOTIONAL:
  • Do you have faith at least the size of a mustard seed today? Explain your answer.
    • Camp – enough campers and counselors to have a great camp for our campers.
  • What are some mountains of difficulty that you need to be moved in your life?

QUOTE(S) FROM TODAY’S DEVOTIONAL:

“Faith is different from proof: The latter is human; the former is a gift from God.”

Blaise Pascal

“Faith is your reaction to God’s ability.”

Zig Ziglar

Today’s reading from Tanakh:


So no matter what comes your way, it is your decision as to which is bigger. No matter what comes your way, it is your decision to focus on the problem or on God. No matter what comes your way, it is your decision to change the perspective so that even with your little bit of faith, God’s infinite power will be able to overcome it. In this world we will have troubles but we can take heart because Jesus has overcome the world! And even when we face trials of many kinds, we can consider it pure joy because of our faith in God ‘knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. ‘ So let’s pray:

Heavenly Father 
I come to you in prayer asking for the 
forgiveness of my Sins. I confess with my 
mouth and believe with my heart that 
Jesus is your Son, And that he died on the 
Cross at Calvary that I might be forgiven. 
and have Eternal Life in the Kingdom of 
Heaven. Father, I believe that Jesus rose 
from the dead and I ask you right now to 
come in to my life and be my personal 
Lord and Savior. I repent of my Sins and 
will Worship you all the day's of my Life!
Because your word is truth, I confess with 
my mouth that I am Born Again and 
Cleansed by the Blood of Jesus! In Jesus 
Name, Amen

Did you pray with me?
