Lots of people have read about mustard seed faith (Matthew 13:31-32, Matthew 17:20, Mark 4:32-32, Luke 13:19, Luke 17:6)
Lots of people like to talk about mustard seed faith.
Few people who are willing to BECOME mustard seed faith…
Few people are willing to “go backwards” when it comes to material things. Few people are willing to let themselves, their circumstances, their finances, or their lifestyle become small so that God can make and grow them into something big and fruitful.
God has ordained things to start out SMALL.
Often, things start out EXTREMELY small.
In nature, a seed is planted. It’s so small and insignificant. Compared to the full-grown “giants” that are all around it, it’s hard to imagine that this one little seed even matters – let alone that it could ever make a difference.
But, the seed doesn’t concern itself with such burdening, limiting thoughts.
It just begins the germinating process by absorbing miniscule amounts of moisture and nutrients from the soil that’s around it.
Compared to the resources of the surrounding “giants”, the resources of the tiny seed is almost laughable.
But again, the seed doesn’t waste it’s time making such non-useful comparisons.
By drawing upon that which is available to it with the small strength that it has, it soon enough starts a root. Now, it’s a little bigger and has a little more strength. Now, it can draw a little more moisture and it can draw even more nutrients from the soil.
It doesn’t worry about what others around it are doing. It just keeps doing all it can do with all it has available to it.
Before long, a sprout pops out of the ground. Now, it can draw on even more resources such as sunshine.
Eventually, the little seed becomes one of the “giants” that contributes to the eco-systems of nature in a major way.
This is the way of God. This is how God has ordained things to work.
Do not be afraid of becoming small.
Do not be afraid of people seeing you in a low estate.
Do not be afraid of moving into a position where you’re now the “least”.
For in doing so, you place yourself firmly into the hands of God so that He can make you one of those who are among the “greatest”.
