Faith does start out the size of a mustard seed, but you must not forget that seed must grow. It must be appropriately nurtured with the living water and watched over to ensure it grows into a beautiful large tree. What does this have to do with trusting God? When it comes to trusting God, it requires you to have faith in Him.
There are some things that God will do in your life that though you may not know how it will fully turn out, you trust Him. These are circumstances that are slightly similar to what God has already done for you before. So of course it’s easy for you to have faith and trust Him, because you’ve seen something done like this before. But what about when God wants to grow your faith tree? What does that require?
For one, it will look like a situation or circumstance you’ve never been in. Which means, you can’t automatically pull a piece of fruit from your faith tree and say ,” Here God, I already have enough faith you will do that.” Nah. You don’t have the fruit yet, which is why it requires you to trust Him even more. When God wants to do something new in your life, it requires you to trust Him so that faith can be built. Because indeed it is your faith that produces the miracle right?
Someone reading this may be in a completely new circumstance or situation and you are wondering why God keeps saying trust Him. It’s because God wants to increase your faith to activate this new level or miracle He wants to bring you. Instead of allowing doubt to creep in, just surrender and trust Him.
““Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, And whose hope is the Lord. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, Which spreads out its roots by the river, And will not fear when heat comes; But its leaf will be green, And will not be anxious in the year of drought, Nor will cease from yielding fruit.”
Jeremiah 17:7-8 NKJV
