In Matthew 17:20 it says “He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
This verse kept coming into my mind as my band and I played worship and hymns at The Mustard Seed in downtown Edmonton last Tuesday with the accompaniment of Shaun’s missions class. I knew we were going into an environment that we might be torn down, laughed at and possibly even hurt because of the music we were playing…
As we started playing and the homeless community started to go through the line and get their food…There was just an incredible peace that feel upon that place that the Mustard Seed hadn’t seen in years..Around that time, the community is prone to more fighting and arguments, but..There was just silence and it was an incredibly humbling experience.
I even felt an incredible peace fall over me in that moment, and I felt as God was telling me ” This is what my purpose is for you.”
In life, we seem to underestimate God and what he can do in the lives of others because we feel “unqualified” to serve, guess what? You are the type of person God wants to use for his ministry! I titled this “Faith Like A Mustard Seed” for a reason, and I hope that you understand why…Nothing is impossible for God and for you if you have faith in Him!
