What Jesus teaches about Faith


Welcome to today’s devotional! Faith is one of the most powerful forces we can harness in our lives. When we have faith in Jesus, even the seemingly impossible can become possible. The journey of faith is a beautiful adventure that draws us closer to God and strengthens our relationship with Him. Dive into this devotional with an open heart and ready spirit; you’re about to uncover profound truths about what Jesus teaches us about faith.

Imagine facing life’s challenges not with fear, but with confidence because you trust in God’s promises. That’s the essence of a faith-filled life. Jesus has shown us time and time again that with faith, the mountains in our lives can be moved. Let’s explore His teachings and find ways to apply them in our everyday lives.

Bible Verse

Matthew 17:20 (NIV): “He replied, ‘Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, 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.'”


In this verse, Jesus highlights the incredible potential of even the smallest amount of faith. A mustard seed is one of the tiniest seeds, yet when it grows, it becomes a large tree. Similarly, our faith, no matter how small it starts, can grow and create significant impact in our lives.

Jesus confronts the disciples about their lack of faith, pointing out that their inability to perform miracles was not due to the enormity of the task but their lack of trust in God. This teaches us that it’s not the size of the problem that matters, but the size of our faith. Even small, seemingly insignificant faith is powerful enough to achieve great things when rooted in God.

Faith is about believing in God’s promises and His power, regardless of the visible circumstances. It’s a reminder that our faith should be in God alone, recognizing His unlimited ability to operate in our lives. With just a mustard seed size faith, we partner with God in His miraculous work.
