The Badge of Faith

Matthew:17:20 -“And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.”
I love this Sunday school song, “Faith as small as a mustard seed can move mountains in the power of God”. Indeed, that is absolutely true and powerful. When it comes to faith, I was reminded of a miracle that I read in a book called “I believe in vision”. The servant of the Lord finished his sermon and it was time to do individual prayers. During that time, there came a man who had a severe spine issue and he couldn’t bend for a long time. So the servant of the Lord laid his hand on his back and rendered prayer for healing and asked the man “if” he can bend over. The man couldn’t bend. So he repeated this couple of times and still the same answer. While the servant of the Lord stood there wondering why the healing didn’t happen and at that time he saw a man standing by him. It was Jesus!!! He asked the Lord why the miracle didn’t happen when he prayed for him. Jesus answer was “In my name the demons will leave” and He kept saying that couple of times.
And that was the moment; the Lord’s servant understood that he had acted in unbelief. The word “if” is the badge of unbelief. No matter how much authority we might have, no matter how many special gifts we may have or how much power we might possess, it works by faith and faith only. This time, the prayer was made with authority, power and faith. As a result, of that, the man was healed of his spine issue and could bend.
Dear one, situations always cause us to lose our faith in God. Questions arise from nowhere in our minds and that leaves behind “unbelief”. At that time, we must remember that Faith as small as a mustard seed can move mountains. God’s power is shown when you look at your problem and pray over it with authority, power and faith in the Lord. Don’t let thoughts of uncertainty creep in because that’s the enemy’s way of making you think there’s no way out. Remember there’s power in the name of Jesus. Say it with authority and in faith, no matter what the size of the problem is, pray in faith and live by faith. Replace the badge of unbelief with the badge of faith.
Dear Abba Father in Heaven,
We praise You for the wondrous things You have done in our lives. Lord, when we are up against the difficult situations in our lives, we lose our faith and at that time Your word help us to rise again in faith. We thank You for Your word ” Two-edged sword” that makes the way for us. Lord, we have faith that “In Jesus name” every storm and every mountain like situations will move out of our way. Lord, we are Your children and Your inheritance. We receive You in our lives Abba Father in Heaven through the Sonship of Your Son Jesus Christ. Forgive us and help us to be deeply planted in You. Thank you, Abba Father. In Jesus name. Amen.
God bless you.
