|Luke 17:20-21 – “…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.”|
Many feel the sting of discouragement and want to give up. One wrote: I’ve taught a class for many years; borne many burdens, toiled through tears—But folks don’t notice me a bit, I’m so discouraged, I’ll just quit.—Unknown
One word in scripture comes to mind, one used in the context of the trials of faith. It is ‘perseverance.’ It means to stay under a burden until it passes. Even though we live for God, we may live under pressure, but in due time the burden will be lifted. Be patient and lean on God. If you have the faith of a mustard seed, He can see to it that you reach your heavenly home!
