Planting the tiny seed of faith is a choice to deepen our relationship with God; it is making Jesus the Lord of our lives, submitting to the guiding power and blessings of the Holy Spirit.
We watch the news on TV, read of horrific events throughout the world, and see graphic photos of death and destruction. Where is God in all this?
His Word assures that the kingdom of heaven will continue to grow and expand, providing shelter, love and comfort to all who believe. As faithful believers plant tiny seed of faith, the kingdom grows.
In Matthew 13:31-32 “Another parable He put forth to them, saying: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his field, which indeed is the least of all the seeds; but when it is grown it is greater than the herbs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and nest in its branches.”
Faith may begin like a tiny seed. When we exercise our faith, it grows. Let’s compare it to planting a seedling. We tend to it, fertilize (nourish) it, and it grows. We need to keep the weeds away from it.
Our spirituality is much the same. The Holy Spirit of God prepares our hearts as the seed of faith is planted. That tiny seed of faith is nourished through prayer, studying the Bible, and surrounding ourselves with like-minded Christians. As it grows, we begin to share with others what God has done for us.
Are you discouraged by events, and things happening around you? Are you willing to trust God’s word that the kingdom of heaven will continue to grow throughout the world?
Then ask God to water the “mustard seed of faith” that you have planted in that person’s life. Practice listening actively to that person, remembering that just a small word of faith to him/her can help them grow in faith, trusting God in all circumstances.
Believe with faith and grow your spiritual relationship with God, and be blessed in Jesus name.
