Have you ever had seasons where one particular saying or verse from scripture seems to follow you around?
That’s what the past few weeks have been like for me: one little, well-known verse that seems to pop-up in devotionals, prayer times, and conversations. Even in hashtags.
“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
A pressure can build when we look left and right, and it’s not just one complicated problem to solve. It’s life and death. Homosexuality and the church. Healthcare mandates. Presidential debates.
But when we choose to look straight ahead, we’re faced simply with a mustard seed.
With each decision, we’re called to choose the mustard seed of faith over everything else. For me, that means putting in work and believing that it’s not in vain. That means running after life in community. That means resting, knowing that God needs my heart more than my muscle.
What does your seed of faith look like this week?
Friends, we need to know scripture now more than ever. Let’s take the energy we’re using up on all of those pressures, and move it to a passion for winning over souls, even own own, for God.
Our minds, hearts, homes, and conversations, even our hashtags, need to be filled with the spirit-breathed word of God to redirect us when we start looking left and right. Even when that means going back to the basics and committing the most well-known of verses to memory all over again. Pick a verse this week and stick with it until it’s second nature, then join us back here every few weeks to memorize more. #youvegotthis 🙂
