Because of Your Little Faith

Ange Oak tree

In response to the disciples inability to cast out a demon Jesus told them why they couldn’t. And He said to them, “Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you” (Matthew 17:20 NASB). King James Version uses a different Greek word meaning “unbelief.” Everything we do is by grace through faith. Here Jesus is saying they don’t have any faith; in fact, you could call it unbelief. It takes a tiny amount of faith to move mountains. Anything is possible with mustard seed faith. Jesus used the mustard seed as an example because it’s so small. God is for you and will work with your tiniest faith. It isn’t the faith itself that does something apart from God, but faith allows God to work on your behalf. Unbelief is negative faith. Amplified Bible says it’s “lack of firmly relying trust.” Faith is trusting in God for what He says He will do. By grace through faith you can do all things.
