Faith is very pleasing to God! He is the author and the perfector of that same faith. Faith the size of a mustard seed can achieve the unimaginable…the incredible…the miracle that God’s heart is moved to make happen!
Faith does that…moves God to action! Our faith is being filled up with His Presence, His Glorious Grace…
His Powerful action…in order that we are faith-full!
Hebrews Chapter 11 is all about faith in action. God has a plan to bring our corporate faith to a glorious culmination…
“These were all commended for their faith, yet none of them received what had been promised,since God had planned something better for us so that only together with us would they be made perfect.” (Heb 11:39-40)
God’s design and desire is that we walk by faith – not by sight….(1 Cor 5:7) and that faith even the size of a mustard seed (Matthew 17:20) would cause such great movements – ‘mountain be thou removed’ – it is so!
1 Corinthians 13:13
Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.
Without faith, we cannot please God, (Hebrews 6:11) without hope we have none of His Promises (Hebrew 11:1) and without His Love within, we cannot truly live a purposeful life. (Matthew 22:36-40)
I love how God explains in His Word, that we do not need a bowlful of faith, a bucket load, truckload or any great size amount of faith….just a tiny bit…a mustard seed is quite small, about 1 to 2 mm in diameter. To have a mustard seed full of faith is pleasing to God and He says, is more than enough in the exercise of it, to see great things.
My question then is…
Is our faith full?
Are we exercising the faith we have,
powering up that muscle of faith…
being faithful with the portion of faith we have been given?
Being faithful and being full of faith (faith-full) means we will see fruit-fullness from that same faith…like our forefathers in the faith, they exercised faith and were faith-full and saw many promises fulfilled!
They did not see the completion or receive all that God had promised and indeed nor will we…the culmination is coming and we will be made complete in that same faith…hope…and love!
Meanwhile being faith-full we will absolutely see fruitfullness and fullfilment of Gods promises!
URLOVD to the fullest and overflowing!
