“And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith. And the Lord said,
If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you. But which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle, will say unto him by and by, when he is come from the field, Go and sit down to meat? And will not rather say unto him, Make ready wherewith I may sup, and gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten and drunken; and afterward thou shalt eat and drink? Doth he thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded him? I trow not. So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servant: we have done that which was our duty to do.” Luke 17 v5-10 AKJV
A little bit of faith goes long way. We desire our faith to be increased, I do often feel the need for more faith. But to ask, how is faith measured, because it is not seen. A comparable question, how is the breath that we breathe measured, it to is not seen. The breath that we breath contains all the necessary components to sustain our living in a normal health. The faith that we practice-use will also provide the same results, life.
God is good to us, and working around us all the day long, as ‘Henry Blackeby’ would tell us-all we need to do is join him God in what he is already doing. A verse handed to me of a co-worker just yesterday on a small piece of paper…
“All prophets testify about him that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.” Acts 10:43
The story behind this is somewhat intriguing and maybe the opportunity will come to share it someday. Keep on keeping on, God’s word will not return void. It is not of me that the work is done. The great humility is to realize the blessing of being part of the family of God and joining him in what he is doing.
Lord, this day is yours. Cover all that are in our thoughts and prayers this day with your mercy, and your grace. Amen
