Increase My Faith –

Key Verse: Luke 17:1-6; Matthew 17:14-21

A Three Word Prayer met with three impossible situations.  Luke 17:6; Matthew 17:20

Compare the two verses in Luke and Matthew, we see that He speaks about three impossible situations:

It is not easy to uproot a mulberry tree. You should know the mulberry tree has a deep and invasive root system. You probably can cut a mulberry tree, but it is extremely difficult to uproot it.

Mulberry trees don’t grow in the ocean. it is impossible to plant a mulberry tree in the water and it survive, nor will it grow and bear fruit.

Thirdly, very clearly you cannot even shake, let alone move a small hill, let alone moving an entire mountain from here to there.

So, what Jesus was actually saying was a faith as small as a mustard seed would make the impossible possible in your life. 

Faith is taking the Gospel in; works is taking the Gospel out.

Lord Increase our Faith! Increased Faith is unleashed faith!
