Remember the Lord Jesus said in Luke 18:1 that we should pray always and not give up. Through prayers we can actually change things. We can change the course of our lives and our circumstances. We can change things in our homes, our jobs, our finances and our bodies. We can even change things in the lives of other people, things in our schools, our cities, our nation and the world! This is why it’s so important that we study and understand how to pray effectively. In Matthew 17:20, Jesus said,“…verily I say unto you, If ye 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”(Matthew 17:20).
When Jesus talks like this. It gives us the reason to be hopeful and believe that anything, absolutely anything, is possible!
A man had brought his lunatic son to Jesus’ disciples to cast the devil out of him. His disciples tried and couldn’t, so he took his boy to Jesus who then cast the devil out of the boy.
The disciples later asked the Master why they couldn’t cast the devil out and He answered them, “because of your unbelief.” Then He added, “If ye 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” (Matthew 17:20).
Now, a grain of mustard seed is so small that if you put several of them in your palm and blow just lightly, they’ll fall off.Jesus said if you have faith as small as that grain of mustard seed you will say to a mountain to move from here to there, and it will! Then He said, “NOTHING SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE UNTO YOU!”
