Faith As A Seed And As Your Servant

Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.  When Jesus talked about faith he said “If you have faith as a grain of mustard seed.”  He said that because he was comparing faith to a seed.  When you plant a seed that seed works to produce the very thing it was planted to produce.  That seed does not produce in the earth until it breaks through the ground.  Then that seed continues to produce in the earth taking on the form and substance of the thing planted for. 

When faith is planted in your heart you will know it because out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.  That’s interesting because Jesus compares your heart to soil.  And when that faith comes out of your mouth it will work to produce according to the faith that was planted.  And that faith will continue to work until the faith you release takes on the substance of the faith that was planted in your heart.  That’s why it says faith is the substance of things.

In Luke chapter 17 Jesus compares faith to a servant.  Faith is your servant it should be working for you.  Jesus said “If you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you might say”, that’s how faith is released.  And when faith is in your heart and you release it out of your mouth you have just given your servant an assignment.  And your servant faith will work for you until the job is finished if you don’t speak against it.

That’s how God created the worlds with his faith and words.  The faith that was in him He released by his words.  Somebody might say well that was God, but Jesus said if you believe what you speak will come to pass you will have what you say. Jesus explained how the faith of God operates, it performs what is released to perform.  And the word of God is the faith of God.  So when the word of God is in your heart and you speak it out of your mouth it will perform the very thing you speak, isn’t that what Jesus said.

    I realize this is an old post. But as im currently trying to strengthen my faith in Gods word and build my hope in His promises. I wanted to re juvenate this topic and maybe learn some more about it. I did read somewhere to not speak negatively about a situation your praying for. Whether its deliverance, healing, etc. I had to repent of that myself in my own current situation where im believing for a miracle.

      faith is doing what is not practical, praying all night rather than everyday thing is not pactical,not eating for a week or 2 is not either,but it is a show to God,you will do these things as a act of trust that he is and is able to change what can’t be changed

        I dunno bout you…..I fast cause I want to weaken the flesh and strengthen the spirit. Jesus fasted for 40 days and 40 nights. He also over came temptation and evil. Not that I’m saying people need to not eat like that. Yet I am saying we fast to draw closer to God. I think we need to explain what practical is a little more so people don’t misunderstand what you mean Holy_rollar.
        practical (ˈpræktɪk ə l)

        — adj
        1. of, involving, or concerned with experience or actual use; not theoretical
        2. of or concerned with ordinary affairs, work, etc
        3. adapted or adaptable for use
        4. of, involving, or trained by practice
        5. being such for all useful or general purposes; virtual

        — n
        6. an examination in the practical skills of a subject: a science practical

        [C17: from earlier practic, from French pratique, via Late Latin from Greek praktikos, from prassein to experience, negotiate, perform]
        Etymology Dictionary, © 2010 Douglas Harper Within the world Practical it’s used centering around the practice of some action. So what I believe your saying is that one can stay up all night praying but if this was just a one time practice and you never pray again or practice the art of prayer to God…..Then you are not seeing prayer as truth or meaning having faith in prayer. Also, eating is not a practice we do often or fasting. However, if we practice these acts we are seeking God and showing our faith in him. When we excise faith we show and prove we have trust in God.

          fasting makes the flesh weak,no so much in actual strenth,but in pulling us away from temptations of the flesh and helps keeping our mind and heart on Christ,meals,or days,all is profitable. For great deliverences,I (H.R) believe greater sacrifices are nessasary, also Jesus did the 40 days,because of the miracles he did,and to be an example for us all, although he was God,he was also man,and was subject to temptations as we are, Barb, great to hear from you, also practical is as the world goes,going against what our flesh wants,and do that which shows God we believe in him enough to sacrifice ourselves,and long to see him deliver us from all our troubles.

      It’s written in Heb 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Faith (Belief=Believe= to see something as truth) is the substance (physical matter) of things hoped for, evidence (proof) of things not seen. None of us have ever seen the physical matter or substance of kindness have we? No. What we see is the physical matter and evidence or proof of the unseen impressions of kindness presence. When someone does a deed of kindness. The impression of the kindness is what we see, it’s how we know it’s there. What is kindness? Is kindness good? Very much so. It’s written all good things come from God. Also, anyone who knows Papa God can say that the impression of kindness is so strong about him because he is kindness. We cannot see it’s physical matter. However, see it as truth one because it’s good and all good things come from Papa God. Then 2 because it’s impression it leaves on mankind when it’s present is amazing. If you want to build up your faith look at the unseen things of god. You will see but you won’t see? Understand? Also, it’s written in Heb 11:3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. Well think of it this way. None of us was around in the beginning. Yet we have faith, see the beginnings truth because of the world around us. Go to Gen. the beginning of our blue print for faith. Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
      Gen 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
      Gen 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
      Gen 1:4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
      Gen 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. God said let their be light and hey there was light. We weren’t there but we believe because why? Well, everytime I see day with the sunrise after a night with barely light. Praise God! There’s light!!! It’s written there was no light the earth was without form and void. Well even scientists today can confirm that in the beginning there was nothing. Yet There’s light now. God saw the light was good. Yes it’s great amazing and wonderful!!! Could you imagine a world with out light? Void? I don’t want to begin to go there. However, I have faith that God created light. I see it as truth. I wasn’t there I really can’t see or microscope a ray of light. Yet I know it’s there. Even on a cloudy day there’s still light during the day. How is that? Oh yea it’s written God said Let their be light. There’s so many things to increase your faith and draw you closer to papa god. Even the mustard see of hey God said let their be light and there was light is a mountain of faith. You just have to choose to believe or see it as truth. If you can believe that this small truth. What else do you think you can have faith in or see as truth just saying. The possibilities are amazing and endless. The bibles a blue print to everything. Just gotta choose to read and study it. To have faith is a personal decision. Your choice.
