Minister’s Corner
Meade Co.
Today I want to ask the
question, how much faith do
we really need?
I recently heard a certain
preacher on the radio talking
about how we need a great
amount of faith in order to
live the victorious life God
wants for us. He said that
our faith starts out small, like
a mustard seed, but that it
doesn’t stay that way. I agree
that faith starts out small
and grows as we experience
more of the results of faith.
However, I think we have
to be careful to always give
God the credit for whatever
amount of faith we have.
In Matt. 7:27-34 we have
the story of Jesus healing
two blind men. He asked
them, “Do you believe that
I am able to do this?” “Yes
Lord” was their reply. Then
Jesus said, “According to
your faith will it be done to
you.” How much faith was
required for them to receive
their healing? Not much.
Just a simple “Yes Lord” was
all that was required.
In 2 Cor. 12:7-10, Paul
tells us about a “thorn” in his
flesh given to him to keep
him humble. He pleaded
with the Lord to take it away
three times. The answer he
got was: “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power
is made perfect in weakness.”
Did Paul not have enough
faith? No, he had the same
faith as the blind men. He
simply said “Yes Lord” to the
all sufficient grace of God.
Some say they are believing God for a miracle.
Maybe the miracle is just
believing God. Faith-fullness is one of the fruits of
the Spirit as recorded in Gal.
5:22-23. Being full of faith
is the result of living in relationship with Jesus. Just say
“yes Lord” and be faith-full.
