I watched the men’s 100 meters final (2008 Olympics) last Saturday, and the race was something to behold. The winner – Usain Bolt – ran 100 meters in 9.69 seconds; that’s approximately 23 miles per hour! Even more impressive than his time, however, is that only 0.22 seconds separated first and third place. 0.22 seconds is a small difference, but it was just enough to give one man a world record and another third best.
Small things can have tremendous impact, and that’s JESUS’ point in the text cited above. JESUS taught the disciples that a little faith can go a long way. HE illustrated this point by mentioning a mustard seed. A mustard seed is tiny, but it has the potential to develop into a tree 10 feet tall. Faith is no different; a little faith can make anything possible!
This recharge is dedicated to those who have backed away from your GOD-given assignments and dreams; you’ve concluded that the task is beyond your capabilities. Stop focusing on the how, and start focusing on the what. What you need is a little faith; just believe that HE can accomplish what HE’S shown you!
A little faith can go a long way. Try it!
