Today’s Scripture Selection: Luke 17:5
“The apostles said to the Lord, ‘Increase our faith!”
Even with all they were witnessing
- All the teaching
- All the healing
- All the miracles
…they had the need.
They needed help with their faith.
Isn’t that true of all of us?
No matter how close we sometimes feel to God; no matter how much grace we feel at times; there are those moments when, most of all, we need just a little more faith.
That’s why Jesus’ response to them is so helpful – and hopeful.
“If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea, and it will obey you.”
Another time – he said the same thing – adding that such faith can literally move mountains.
How about it?
Do you have a mountain that needs to be moved in your life?
Do you feel so overwhelmed that you can’t see past tomorrow – much less way into the future?
Then I encourage you to ask like the apostles asked.
“Lord, increase my faith!”
And if you open your mind; open your heart; come to God as honestly and sincerely as you can – I believe God will honor that prayer.
Faith moves mountains. Even just a little bit can move mountains.
Why not see if God can help you move one today?
Prayer: Lord, I pray as one good man in desperate need once prayed, “I believe, help my unbelief!” AMEN.
