This reminds me about my wavering faith, too. Even though my mind knows the greatness of God, yet my fears can crumble my faith in Him. I am SO very weak, but I'm GLAD that He knows that I'm SO weak. He knows that, yet He still loves me the way I am.
I wonder why Jesus said these words:
"I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." (Matthew 17:20)
Why "as small as a mustard seed"? If it's so easy to accomplish, then there would probably be many mountains moving around on earth as Christians tell them to move he he he he he...Just kidding he he he...
However, the Bible said that there were people with GREAT faith. I wonder how they could accomplish that. I wonder if they NEVER experience wavering faith at all. Is that possible? It seems highly unlikely, except if they can maintain a WONDERFUL personal relationship with God 24/7. Can we ever accomplish that without the help of the Holy Spirit?
Yeah, yeah, these are just my musings. I find that when I focus on my own fears, I start questioning God's actions and my heart becomes hardened. Fear is really a debilitating emotion. I've surrendered those fears to God and I hope He'll continue whispering His truths to me. I wanna hear His voice...
