I have been on a mission! Just how big is a "mustard" seed? I finally found one, and it is about this " . "big. Did JESUS say, "if you have FAITH the SIZE of a mustard seed'? Or did HE say, "if you have FAITH LIKE a mustard seed..." (Matthew 17:20)? Have we been "persuaded" to view our FAITH as some mystical QUANTITY, when GOD'S WORD talks about the PRESENCE of FAITH in us? Isn't FAITH a CONDITION of the Heart, a vitality and energy that continues to grow from our Confidence in JESUS? When someone you TRUST or have CONFIDENCE in, tells you they did something nice for you; DID YOU THANK THEM even before you SAW IT because you HAD NO DOUBT? Isn't FAITH the PRESENCE of CONFIDENCE in JESUS not AMOUNT? DO WE THANK GOD, EVEN BEFORE WE'VE SEEN WHAT HE IS DOING? NOW THAT IS FAITH!
It is the Presence of FAITH, not necessarily the AMOUNT.
