Our father is willing and able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we can ask for. When asking the question, Father where art thou? no need to wonder or worry. When you need Him, He is there. When you fall, He is there. When you are sick, He is there. When it seems all hope is gone, He is there. Know that He is ever present.
In the midst of your storm, call Him. Don’t fret, don’t worry and don’t cry. God says in His word that He will never leave you or forsake you. The scriptures tells us to “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he shall never leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6 Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.” Genesis 28:15 He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
Listen closely, if you are going to worry, why pray? But if you are going to pray, why worry? If you don’t believe God is just and able to do what He says He is will to do, than you have a major problem. You lack faith, and it appears that you even lack the faith, the size of a mustard seed. Do you realize how little a grain of mustard seed is?
One must believe God’s word, it is true, and know that it is alive! The scriptures also tells us that faith is vital to the Christian life, that Scripture tells us that, without it, it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6). Faith is such a powerful gift from God. (Ephesians 2:8–9) Christ told His disciples, just a tiny measure of faith, the size of a mustard seed, mountains could be moved. So, what does it mean, “mustard seed faith”? First, in Matthew 17:14–20, we see Christ’s disciples were unable to exorcise a demonic being from a young boy, even though Jesus had previously given them the power to do so (Matthew 10:1).
After they inquired of Jesus why they were not able to drive the demon out, Jesus replied, “Because your faith is so little. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘move from here to there’ and it will move; Nothing will be impossible” (Matthew 17:14–20). In Luke 17:6, Jesus tells the disciples, “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.” Using the uncommonly small mustard seed as an example, Jesus is speaking figuratively about the incalculable power of God when unleashed in the lives of Christians with honest faith.
Note that the statement about moving mountains and uprooting trees by faith is not to be taken literally. The key to understanding the passages is the nature of faith, which is the gift from God. The power of faith reflects the omnipotent nature of the God who bestows faith on His own. The mustard seed is one of the tiniest seeds found in the Middle East. But the fact of the matter is, that the amount of faith that is needed to do great things is small indeed. As in the parable of the mustard seed (Matthew 13:31–32), Jesus uses rhetorical hyperbole to make the point that little is much when it comes from God. Below is a simple but great prayer to pray to the father, it covers every aspect of what is needed from God. As well as the scriptures that say “Lord I believe, but help thou my unbelief.”
The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, which art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those
who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever. Amen. To God be the Glory!
