FAITH IN A SEED
In the coldest grip of winter, we begin to dream of spring—imagining the warmth, the buds, the greenest grass, the scent of jonquils on the breeze. So in each heart long-frozen by great fear God plants a mustard seed of faith—faith that a day of joy and grace can yet be our reality. The testimony of God’s Word is clear: “God has dealt to each one a measure of faith” (Rom 12:3). And that means you—you, too—with all your doubts and conflicts, struggles and uncertainties. So pray with me in ever-warming confidence, “Lord, increase our faith.” “He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ” (Phil 1:6). Grace always meets us where we are, but never leaves us where we were. So grow in grace.
