Memory Monday – Week 31

The Memory Verse last week was Hebrews 11:1, which tells us to put our faith in the unseen. This week I’m sharing Matthew 17:20, another verse on faith.

The context behind this verse takes place when disciples, who were unable to drive out the demons, asked Jesus why they couldn’t. Jesus pointed out it was due to their lack of faith.

In this passage, all that Jesus requested was that if they had faith as small as a mustard seed, the mountain would move. Faith as small as a mustard seed was sufficient enough. He didn’t measure the size of faith by the ocean or sky, but the mustard seed, which was such a small particle.

There is so much potential in such little faith. I think sometimes it’s so easy to get wrapped up in how small or big our faith is or maybe how many times we pray and ask. We need to remember that it is God who moves mountains. Even though faith must always be present, It’s never our faith that causes the mountain to move, it’s always God. We need to make sure as Christians we put our faith in God, not in our own abilities, our actions, our circumstances, or other people. If your problem seems too big to face, stop fixing your eyes on the mountain and start fixing your eyes on the one person who can remove the mountain. With Him, nothing is impossible.

    So thankful it is not my feeble faith that moves the mountains, but God’s working through me. He heals the sick and makes the lame walk. All glory to our God!

    Wonderful verse. Our faith may be small but our God is so big. Thankful that my faith isn’t what makes the mountains move.

    This one of my favorite scriptures to study and think about. I love that WE are the ones to tell our mountains to move. Before I really studied this scripture I was often too busy just talking to God about my mountain, but then I realized I needed to be talking to my mountain about God and telling it to move! xoxoxoxo

    This is my FAVORITE VERSE OF ALL TIME. When I was little, my mom bought me a necklace with a tiny little glass charm which contained a mustard seed inside and an inscription with this verse. Also reminds me of the song Only A Mountain by Jason Castro. Think of this verse every time I hear it. Love it!

    Great reminder, Caroline. Even with faith it is God who moves the mountains, not us. We can only marvel at His power and majesty. Blessings for a safe trip.
