Today's devotion is based on Luke 17:5,6, "The apostles said to the Lord, "Increase our faith!" He replied, "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."
Jesus indicates that even with a bit of faith, great things can be done. That's because it is not our faith that does anything. It's the one we've put our faith in who does the impossible. For, after all, God did the impossible. He took away every single sin of everyone in the world through the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross.
If God found it necessary, he would allow you to do great things. God could make that happen for you. But God probably doesn't need you to do that. Instead, he has given you faith to be able to forgive those who sin against you, just as he forgave you. He has given you the faith to persevere through difficult seasons of life and moments of significant loss. He has given you faith that clings to Christ so that salvation and heaven are yours. The impossible has been made possible through faith in the all-powerful God.
Please pray with me, Lord, I believe. Please help me in my unbelief so that your will, will be done. You have worked the impossible with your death and resurrection, so I know you can use even my weak faith to accomplish great things. I pray this in your holy name. Amen.
