Mustard Seed Faith
And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you. If you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, remove hence to yonder place, and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting (Matthew 11:20-21) .
The disciples walked with the Savior as well as received His teaching, but yet they had unbelief when they were asked to heal a man’s epileptic son. It could have been they had doubt within themselves that they were incapable of healing the man’s son in their own ability, and if that was the case they would have been right, but they had forgotten Jesus had given them the power to tread over serpents and scorpions and all the power of the enemy.As born-again Christians, we have received a portion of God’s Spirit living within our being, it is Him working in and through us. Within ourselves, we cannot heal anyone, but when we release our faith in the power of God to manifest Himself through us; it can be done. What is impossible with us, is always possible with Jesus. At the name of Jesus, every knee must bow, but we must believe within ourselves there is power in His name and this comes by faith in His name.
At the name of Jesus, everything in heaven and earth must bow in other words come subject to His name. Sickness, lack, envy, manipulation, everything you can think of that is opposite of the Word of God must come subject. Because somethings we have allowed for years to dominate; it will take more time to get rid of them. We’re talking about spirits, not people when spirits have dominated for so long they don’t want to release what they have taken control of. But if you keep fighting them with the Word of God and the name of Jesus they must come subject. As Christians, we are in a spiritual war, a war against evil, and it’s going to take those who have been Holy Spirit baptized to fight for those who can’t fight for themselves.
Secondly, we must be prayerful coupled with fasting. Prayer keeps us connected with the Father and fasting makes us more sensitive to the voice and the Spirit of God. If we have faith as a grain of mustard seed which is very small, we will see the manifestation of God ‘s power moving in and through us. Keep your faith in God, don’t allow your focus to be on the giants or the mountains that may be present in your life, but look at the Father and His Greatness, place your faith in God. Thirdly, we must know it’s in the will of the Father for someone to be healed as well as their appointed time to die. Everyone will not be healed physically, but they can be healed spiritually. Continue to pray for your unsaved loved ones, continue to speak the Word of God into their lives, words have the power they become active whether we’re speaking positive or negative. If you don’t know Scriptures by memory, get your Bible, find Scriptures that pertain to your circumstance, and read them over your circumstances until you receive a manifestation of the Word of God.
Faith is the things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. What you want and need comes from the Father of all nations, you have the power to speak life into things that need to come alive, and speak death to the things that need to die, we’re talking about spirits, not people! Positive faith moves the hand of God, negative faith moves the hand of Satan.
