Increase my faith?

Luke 17: 5 The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!”

He replied, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you.

“Increase my faith”. I have prayed that more times than I can count. “Help me to believe you for this.” “Help me to believe you for that.” But when should we stop asking and start stepping out in the faith we already have? The answer is now. You and I have enough faith at this moment to do exactly what Jesus has called us to do.

When the disciples asked for their faith to increase, basically Jesus told them to step out in the faith they already had. He told them they could actually change the course of nature if they believed it would be done.

What are you praying for? Or maybe a better question is “What are you lacking the faith to pray for?” What or who needs a touch of God in your life? You’ve been given everything you need to reach out and touch that person; that situation; that mulberry tree.

Let’s stop asking and start acting.
