Apostle Grace Lubega
Matthew 17:19-20 (KJV); Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
Faith in its seed form is the Word of God.
In Luke 8:11, Jesus explains this when He says, “Now the parable is this, the seed is the Word.”
In size, a mustard seed may be one or two millimeters. However, when it grows, it can reach up to twenty feet.
When He speaks of faith that is as small as a mustard seed, He means that THE SLIGHTEST REVELATION OF THE WORD CAN COMMAND VERY GREAT FAITH.
If something that is the size of a mustard seed can move an entire mountain, one word received into your spirit can stir up the faith to alter the toughest and roughest of circumstances. One word enlightening your spirit can provoke you to believe God in a deeper dimension than you have ever known.
This is why we never take the word for granted and give it our undivided attention.
One sentence may change the entire course of your destiny. One verse may transform your vision and set you on a path to greatness.
God wants your attention and the greatest way to give Him your attention is by attending to His Word (Proverbs 4:20). As you do so, faith is stirred in you to move the immovable, shake the unshakeable and break the unbreakable.

GOLDEN NUGGET: Faith in its seed form is the Word of God. The slightest revelation of the Word of God can command very great faith.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this truth. I am eternally grateful for the gift of Your Word. It directs my life, lights my path, and shapes my future. It dwells richly in my spirit and is constantly on my lips. With revelation, I do the impossible in my world because faith by Your Word is at work in me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
