'MUSTARD SEED FAITH'.

(Mustard seeds)
''And Jesus said to them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say to you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you shall say to this mountain, Remove here to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible to you. However this kind goes not out but by prayer and fasting'' - Matthew 17:20-21
.
Faith like a mustard seed is not like the great faith Jesus talked about in Matthew 8:8. Great faith requires a word from the Lord which a man believes but mustard seed kind of faith is in the saying (verbal declaration and it is enhanced through prayer and fasting.
.
Mustard seed faith sees a mountain (difficulty, problem, challenge etc) and speaks to it. Confessing positive words is not the same thing as speaking to the mountain.
.
There is a correlation between mustard seed faith and prayer and fasting. Prayer and fasting that is properly done releases a spiritual energy in your spirit man, hereby giving you the authority and boldness to speak to any mountain and nothing shall be impossible.
.
How can I have this faith? Live a prayer and fasting life. You can be faced with mountains at any time, the best to do is to be prepared before hand. If the disciples had been engaging in prayer and fasting, they would have been able to speak to the man's mountain.
.
You do not prepare for battle in the midst of battle, you prepare for battle before battle comes.
.
Over-feeding the flesh with all that it needs will make a man to be filled with unbelief, fear and worry. But when you starve or deprive it of all it craves for and engage in prayer and fasting, you will be filled with the energy to demonstrate a mustard seed faith.
