Daily Devotional – 9/1/11 “WTF” (Where’s the Faith)

God says, “Why are you so fearful, oh ye of little faith?” (Matthew 8:26) When the door gets closed in your face, didn’t I give you hands to knock?  When folk talk about you, didn’t I give you knees to pray for them!  When you mess up, didn’t I give you a mind to think & learn from your mistakes? When your heartache seems to be too hard to bear, am I not a heart fixer? When folk speak death in your life, didn’t I give you a tongue that speaks life? (Proverbs 18:21)  When the car stops, didn’t I give you legs to walk?   When money is low, am I not your provider! When times are hard, won’t I be your way-maker?  When folk leave, am I not always there! When sickness comes, am I not a healer? When the job lays you off, don’t I always come through? When husband/wife doesn’t act right, don’t I wipe your tears?  When your gas light is on, don’t I get you home safe?  Then where is your faith? 

Matthew 17:20, God says, “Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, 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!”

Isn’t that enough? Stop stalling and step out on your faith. Surely if it only takes faith the size of a mustard seed to move your mountain, imagine what an immeasurable amount of faith will do for you? That job, car, house, business, etc., is yours!  But YOU must have faith!
