What Jesus teaches about Faith


Faith is the cornerstone of our relationship with Jesus. It’s what gives us hope in times of despair, courage in moments of fear, and strength when we feel weak. Sometimes, however, life can cloud our sense of faith, making it difficult to see the path forward. If you’re feeling disconnected or in need of a faith boost today, you’re in the right place. Let’s explore what Jesus teaches us about the power of faith and how it can transform our lives.

Are you ready to deepen your faith and see its potential to move mountains? Throughout history, Jesus has shown us through His life and His words how unwavering faith can lead to miracles, healing, and incredible peace. This devotional will guide you through wisdom from the Bible, practical steps to incorporate faith into your life, reflective journal prompts, and more.

Bible Verse

Matthew 17:20: "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 powerful verse, Jesus shares an essential truth about the nature of faith. Faith doesn’t have to be grand or perfect; even faith as small as a mustard seed can create monumental changes. A mustard seed is tiny, yet it grows into a large tree. Similarly, our small acts of faith can bring forth tremendous outcomes.

Jesus is reminding His followers that the power of faith lies not in its size but in its presence. When we trust in God, no matter how minuscule our faith may seem, we unlock incredible potential. This means that every step of faith, no matter how small, is a step towards the extraordinary.

Faith allows us to connect with God’s power and omnipotence. Jesus is teaching us that through faith, we are partners with God in accomplishing the seemingly impossible. It’s an invitation to trust deeply and act boldly, knowing that God is with us every step of the way.

Actions to Take
