And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? (Matthew 6:28-30)
Jesus made a distinction between someone who has much faith and those who have little faith.
Mark 11:23 tells us that a person with strong faith can move mountains because although he may doubt in his heart, he still believes that whatever he says will come to pass.
On the contrary, little faith is when we are filled with doubt and disbelief that God is going to do anything for us.
Jesus gave us an example of how to combat our little faith moments. He said, “Look around you.” As Jesus looked around, He saw lilies in the field and grass on a nearby hill. He told those listening that God made these things beautiful and with purpose. The strength and resiliency of nature should remind us that God will take care of us.
When you are tempted to doubt, remind yourself of God’s goodness. Notice His power displayed in creation and remember how God has seen you through in the past.
We are not to be people of little faith. We should giants in the faith as we declare what we know God has said in His Word. Don’t settle for any less than the best that God has planned for your life. Don’t live with little faith - you are called to be a giant.
Practical Application – Don’t be a person of little faith. God has anointed you to be a powerhouse. Begin to declare what God says about you. Speak His promises out loud before you leave the house every day. Remind yourself that you’re not a doubter; you’re a giant in faith.
Matthew 8:26; Matthew 14:31
