God Centered Faith Quickly Moves Believers
Out Of Little Faith
In Matthew 6:30-34 Jesus describes the condition of having “little faith” rather than having mountain moving faith that all believers can have from Mark 11:23.
Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not worry, saying, “What shall we eat?” or “What shall we drink?” or “What shall we wear?” For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”
As we see in this passage, little faith is a worried faith, worried about tomorrow and occupied with lack instead of being occupied with God.
Some Christians believe God cares, but they have little faith in God because their focus is based upon the fear that He can’t provide for them. By thinking opposite of God’s Word and making statements like, “What am I going to eat? What am I going to wear? How am I going to get by?” Christians keep themselves from trusting God for all of their needs to be met. This kind of attitude keeps faith in God from developing.
In Matthew 6:30-34 God tells us that He will not only bless us with everything we could want or need, but we don’t have to think or especially worry about tomorrow. God’s care for us lasts more than one day because it’s infinite. It lasts forever as long as we don’t limit ourselves to having a little faith in God which will keep us from receiving the flow of His blessings.
While our thoughts about our daily needs are all legitimate; we must realize that our Father knows of those needs. He created us so He naturally knows everything about us. It just makes sense that rather than focusing on your lack and being worried about tomorrow by pulling tomorrow’s clouds over today’s sunshine, you can let your focus be on God and His sufficiency, His care, and His abundant love.
