Today’s devotion for today is based on Luke 17:6, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted, and planted in the sea’, and it will obey you.”
I cannot imagine telling them a Mulberry tree to get up and plant itself in the sea. I guess my faith is much smaller than a mustard seed. And a mustard seed is tiny!
Fortunately, Jesus’ words are not actually about how big or small our faith is. Yes, it’s important that we have faith. But much more important is the Lord who provides faith, who cultivates it, and allows it, even when smaller than a mustard seed, to achieve mighty things.
The wonderful thing is that God can use my faith, even when it might be even smaller than a mustard seed, to restore hope where there is no hope, justice where justice does not seem to exist, grace where grace does not seem to be present, and faith where faith cannot be seen.
Please pray the prayer for today with me: Heavenly Father, creator, and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, thank you, God, that it is not the size of my faith that counts, but your nurture, presence, and grace that brings blessings through me. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
