Our daughter forgot her dance outfit leaving for school today, so I dropped it off to her this morning. On the drive over, the Lord spoke to me about the little cross I have in my truck. I was at a red light and I looked over at my little cross and the Lord spoke a word into my heart: “A mustard seed of faith.” He knows I have a lot on my mind. I’m not discouraged or down, but my wife and I are believing and praying for big things right now and I appreciate the Lord encouraging my heart! I know God can do big amazing things whenever He wants to and anything is possible for those who believe!
This little cross is special to me because it’s broken. I found it on the floor a couple years ago at Costco one day. There was a bunch of people shuffling in and out of the store and I saw it on the floor by the carts. The top is broken off, so it is kind of slanted, but I didn’t care. I was having a very hard time with my suffering back then and when I saw that little cross it was like God had given me a brand new shiny gift! It wasn’t broken to me. It was perfect! God encouraged my heart that day and He lifted me up and showed me He was with me!
It helped me get my focus back on Jesus that day and I have kept it in my truck ever since. Our kids love it. They always ask if they can hold it and I always say yes. They hear me preach all the time, so they are very familiar with the cross. You should hear our 8 year old son preach! The Holy Spirit really moves through him! One of these days I will write a blog featuring one of his sermons. He loves the Lord and he knows the Word! Sometimes he just starts preaching from the back seat while I’m driving down the road. It’s great and the Lord really speaks encouragement through him. He always has me saying, “Amen son!”
The Lord reminded me this morning that He wants to do great things in my life and He loves giving His children great gifts and our faith doesn’t have to be any bigger than the little polished stone cross I found that day. If you ever feel like your faith is broken and you feel abandoned, remember that any amount of faith in Jesus is faith enough and He will never abandon you! He will never leave us nor forsake us! Thank You Jesus!
“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.”
Jesus speaking in Luke 17:6
“‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for him who believes.”
“I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.”
Jesus speaking in John 14:18
Have a blessed and encouraging weekend!
Grace and peace friends!
