The Value of Faith

Today I read the whole Gospel of Matthew through in one sitting, and one thing that stood out to me is the great importance that Jesus placed on faith. 

He told His disciples that they were unable to cast out a particular demon because of unbelief. He wondered how long he would have to put up with a generation of such little faith. He commended a couple of Gentiles for having great faith. He repeated that whatever a person believes, he can have or do.

Faith that our heavenly Father will provide - food and clothes, for He knows that we need all these things. He can provide it! Faith to receive healing. Faith to cast out demons. Faith to heal. Faith to feed a multitude. Faith to walk on water. Faith to remove mountains. Jesus really values such faith!

Need. Desire. Ask. Say. Believe. Receive. Have. Do. He shall provide. He shall do it.

So just seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness.
