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.
Mathew 13: 31-32
The Kingdom of heaven is like this. A man takes a mustard seed and sows it in his field. It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it grows up, it is the biggest of all plants. It becomes a tree, so that birds come and make their nests in its branches.
The seed of Brassica nigra (black mustard) is the size of a grain of sand and grows to 8 feet tall. It is one of the more dramatic examples of nature’s expansion, but any seed is small in comparison with the potential it holds for growth. With the proper mixture of nurturing elements, any seed expands exponentially beyond all recognition of its humble beginnings.
The energy of faith grows like this because it comes from so much more than just your conscious belief. Divine Faith is your state of being when you are aligned with your unlimited potential as an aspect of God/Goddess/ All That Is. When you fully know that as the truth of who you are, then the creative power of the entire universe is flowing with you and you can move mountains.
When we are in fear and doubt, we have become small and believe ourselves to be separate, disconnected and helpless. How can one puny human have any real power? But when we are in our knowingness of our full divinity, we know ourselves as everyone and everything; we know ourselves as Source. How can Source be anything but unlimited?
The seed knows its path and purpose from its genetic coding and it simply grows, pushing up through the soil without knowing what lies beyond the surface. Your faith is your path and purpose, even when you don’t see it manifested yet. Having faith in yourself is knowing that you are God/Goddess/All That Is and nothing is impossible.
