The Teacher says - A little faith can move a mountain. He even says - Nothing will be impossible for you.
I confess sometimes I don’t get what the Teacher is talking about. Mustard seeds and moving mountains!
Doesn’t describe my life! My faith! I guess I’m not much of a Mountain-Mover! Maybe I could start with mole-hills and work up!
The words of an old song express my weaker faith –
Lord don’t move that mountain. Give me strength to climb it. Please don’t
move that troublesome mount. Lead me Lord around it!
The lyrics of the song make sense to me. Instead of asking to move the mountain, I ask God to help me deal with it, overcome it, get around it. What’s wrong with that?
Maybe it shows a lack of faith. And a waste of effort if a little faith would move it right out of the way!
I have a question: Does the Teacher really believe a little mustard-seed-kind-of-faith will move a mountain?
Sorry. I know they say there are no dumb questions, but that was close! Of course! Jesus has that kind of faith and He seems to think His students should too.
So here’s the real question: Is mustard seed faith possible for us?
Maybe not if we haven’t even begun to believe what the Teacher says about it!
