"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.”(Matthew 17:20).
Do you sometimes feel limited in what you do for Christ? There are times I feel limited. This morning I remind myself that there is no limit to what I can accomplish with His power. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (Philippians 4:13). If God has called me to do something, He will supply the strength that I need. He faithfully empowers those He calls (1 Thessalonians 5:24). I will never give up because something seems beyond my power to accomplish. In my weakness, I shall realize His strength and power that moves mountains.
What has the Holy Spirit called you to do that seems beyond your capability? In your mind, it may be. But the Lord always sees your potential. There is power in what you consider weakness in your life. Your weakness is just an area that calls to be surrendered to Him so that His power and glory may be exemplified in you. Consider the weakness of what you might think is your small faith. When that small seed of faith is surrendered to the Lord, you can tell your mountain to move. Nothing is impossible.
Pansies have the potential to bring color and beauty to a winter morning, but when the air is freezing they are shriveled and withdrawn; their beauty is hidden by the cold air pressing upon them. As warm water pours gently upon them, they open and stand strong and beautiful in the frigid air. I, just like a pansy, may be weary and shriveled from circumstances which weigh on me, but if I surrender to the warm power of His Spirit, and not to pressing circumstances which surrounds me, He pours himself into my life. I can also stand strong and beautiful in Him. There is no task that He calls me to do that I can't accomplish.
“He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint” (Isaiah 40:29,31, NLT). When I surrender the little that I possess to the power He offers, I experience faith that believes nothing is impossible. I soar in Him, and He moves the mountains in my life.
