Mustard Seed Faith

Six 1/2 years ago I was going through one of my toughest seasons. I remember going to the unemployment office to find a job. When I got there, the Lord had a woman waiting for me to speak into my life. She told me things that I had only pondered in my heart and laid before the Lord. She spoke of my new home and the colors that I would have in my living room. I was homeless at the time and had only spoken to the Lord about my hearts desire. She gave me these 3 little mustard seeds and reminded me that I only had to have faith this small. I taped the seeds to this business card and I have carried it with me ever since. I was going through my wallet jut now and the Holy Spirit told me to share this. It’s for someone who needs a reminder that God is in control. Keep putting one foot in front of the other and trust that when you tell that mountain to move it will surely move and nothing will be impossible for you, in Jesus’ name!!

“You don’t have enough faith,” Jesus told them. “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible” Matthew 17:20, NLT.

  1. Amen and Ame . This was a confirmation for me. A few years ago God told me to send mustard seeds to my prayerline sisters. This just really touched me. Thank you so much for sharing

  2. Awesome testimony! Your test turned into a testimony. Our God is Awesome. 🎶🎶
    Glory to God 🙌🏾

  3. Amen! Proclaiming to the mountains that appear to be blocking the path, “you must move in the name of Jesus. Gods will is taking place and it will not be hindered by anything, not man’s rule or regulations and not by society’s expectations.”
    Our Jehovah God is all powerful, and he is the creator, the alpha & omega. He is worthy of honor and praise. He will manifest His will and all glory belongs to Him.

  6. Thank you for the reminder! Sometime that’s all we need is to be reminded of Gods promises and Grace. Thank you so much

  7. A couple if years ago I had a mustard seed faith moment. I had lost my son in a tragic car accident. He was only 14 years old and our lives were forever changed that day. After a whole I struggled in my faith. I was praying one day in the bathroom at my house crying out to Jesus and telling him i only have a small mustard seed of faith left in me. Jesus hears our cries for help. At work we were doing secret Santa and the girl had gotten me a pendent with a mustard seed in it. It was just a week or so prior I had been crying out to my Savior. At that moment I knew without a shadow of a doubt he was still with me. Through the fire and the rain he was still with me. Not because I am good but because he is good. He is faithful even when we are faithless. He is so good to us Thank you Jesus for the reminder today of some of the storms you have brought me through

  8. ALL GLORY TO GOD!!! I REALLY needed to read this devotion today . My family and I are temporarily displaced due to the cost of living. I’m searching for a 2nd job at the time trusting God to open doors of wisdom and increased finances to take care of my children. I know this is just a season and this too will pass. My faith is activated in Jesus name and I know God has already made the way. Thank you for sharing

    1. Yvette, I know what you’re going through in being homeless, because my family and I were homeless a couple of years ago, but God opened a door for us! I’m so sorry about your daughter, I’m praying for you and your husband. Keep the faith, because God is so good! He said in his word, when we are weak, that’s when we are at our strongest because He’s carrying us through.

  12. Thank you for sharing! Just incredible how He works! We are never alone and His timing is always perfect! What a blessing!

  13. I was the one who needed to hear this on Dec 4th. I was 3 days from closing on my first home purchase as a single woman, on my own after leaving a 25 year abusive marriage, when the lender asked me to provide a financial document that would possibly take weeks to aquire. This process had already taken me back down to the depths of depression, because every day it felt like I just wasn’t “good enough” to make this happen. I was so angry that I emailed the lender, “no, I cannot do this. ” and explained why I thought the document was unnecessary. I wrote in my journal with the time “1:51 pm It looks like I’m not going to get the house. ” and then I opened up this devo. And then, I prayed, and I said “Mountain, MOVE!” 1:56 pm my lender said that was the best rebuttal he had ever seen from a borrower and he was going to take it to his boss and see if it could be waived. 2:54 pm It was waived. I signed on my home on Dec 7th. A tiny home with a big, fenced in, SAFE yard where I can have 3 chickens and a clothes line. Thank you for listening to Papa and posting. I NEEDED it that day.

    PS. I’ve taken to saying “mountain, move!” to my fear, as well! Fear is a mountain that has held me back all my life. I am done with that! ❤️
