Too Much Faith
by Berni Dymet
Matthew 17:20 For truly I tell 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 for you.'
I have to tell you, sometimes, I've seen people do the craziest things in God's name. They make ridiculous statements of faith. It's like they suspend any sense of reality, believing God for something crazy - and so often I've seen them fall flat on their face.
But there's something that hits me right between the eyes when I read up about Jesus. When it came to this faith thing - He never, never criticised anyone, ever for having too much faith, only when they didn't have enough.
This was the Jesus that said if you have faith the size of a tiny mustard seed, you can cast this mountain into the sea - nothing will be impossible for you.
I don't know about you, but I seem to come up against a lot of impossibles in my life. Lots. And every time I do, I look at this tiny mustard seed in my hand and say to Jesus - well Lord, that's all I've got. And you know something, it's always been enough. Always.
