God’s Boundaries are Not Limited to the Size of Our Faith!

Some are facing seemingly impossible things. Daunting medical conditions, broken relationships, challenges with kids or parents, job difficulties, and every unique personal situation imaginable. As Christians, we are instructed to live by faith, not by sight, but it is incredibly difficult at times. Whatever your situation, be encouraged that God does not require perfect faith.

"So Peter was kept in the prison, but prayer for him was being made fervently by the church to God.... When she recognized Peter’s voice, because of her joy she did not open the gate, but ran in and announced that Peter was standing in front of the gate. They said to her, 'You are out of your mind!' But she kept insisting that it was so. They kept saying, 'It is his angel.' But Peter continued knocking; and when they had opened the door, they saw him and were amazed" (Acts 12:5, 14-16). How thankful I am that the boundaries of God's activities for his people are not limited to the size of our faith. The church in Jerusalem was obviously asking God to do something far beyond their own personal capacity to believe and were, therefore, completely shocked when God gave them exactly what they asked for. Because God does not require perfect faith of his children we can ask God, with mustard-seed sized faith, to do above and beyond what we can think or imagine (in accordance with his will of course), all the while praying: "I do believe; help my unbelief" (Mark 9:24).

May your faith grow more deeply as you trust in our faithful God. He’s got this!
