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.””
There are many people today who attribute their failure or incapability to excel to the size of their seed. A farmer never limits his possibility for increasing harvest in the years ahead because of what he has now. A good farmer sees potential. He knows that he can plant a seed that will give back a crop which has hundreds of seeds. Those seeds can in turn be planted which will yield a harvest, and seeds from those can be planted again and again. Even though the farmer started with one seed, if he has a big dream or expectation for his future harvest he can continually repeat the process of sowing and reaping until it becomes a huge harvest.
The seed is a beginning for anything. It represents what is available to you now, and it exists in various forms; prayer, information, thoughts, words, and assets. All of which must have their roots in the primary seed, the word of God. Rather than complain about how small your seed is, have an expectation that nothing is impossible, and plant what you have. Don’t be like the man that was given one talent, who dug the ground and hid the talent in there because he thought it was too small (Matt.25:18).
Jesus taught on the power of a seed in Luke 6:38 (NKJV)when He said, “ Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.” He was not talking about money here, but on the actions we sow.
What you possess currently may be small, but with big dreams, hopes and expectations, you can cultivate the little that you have and as you remain diligent and patient over time, the “little seed” will produce for you a great harvest.
