In Matthew 17:20, Jesus says, “If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
It’s a popular verse among Christians, and one that is often used to encourage people in their faith journey.
But what does it mean, exactly? And how can we apply it to our lives?
In order to understand what Jesus is saying in this verse, we need to first understand what a mustard seed is.
Mustard seeds are tiny—much smaller than other seeds such as sunflower or pumpkin seeds.
In fact, they are often considered to be the smallest of all seeds.
Given their small size, it’s no surprise that Jesus would use them as an example of something that has great power.
The point that Jesus is trying to make is that even the smallest amount of faith can accomplish great things.
Mountains represent obstacles in our lives that seem insurmountable.
But with faith, even the biggest challenges can be overcome.
And as Christians, we have been given a supernatural power source—the Holy Spirit—to help us in our faith journey.
So how can we apply this verse to our lives?
– Pray for God to increase your faith.
– Talk to a trusted Christian friend or mentor about areas where you struggle with doubt or unbelief.
– Read your Bible regularly and meditate on Scripture.
– Get involved in a local church or faith community.
– Spend time with people who have strong faith.
– Serve others and look for ways to share your faith with others.
– Remember that your part is not to figure everything out but instead to trust God and step out in obedience.
Be patient and don’t give up when things are tough—keep moving forward even when it feels impossible.
Faith is not always easy, but it is always worth it.
And even when our faith feels small, we serve a big God who can do big things through us!
So let’s put our trust in Him today and see what He can do!
Each of us has been given a measure of faith by God (Romans 12:3). And while our individual measures may differ, each one of us has the opportunity to use our faith to do big things for His kingdom!
So whatever challenge you’re facing today, remember that Jesus said nothing will be impossible for you if you have faith the size of a mustard seed—and take courage in knowing that He will never leave you nor forsake you (Hebrews 13:5)!
