Little Faith

Description

You may have a little faith in believing that God does care, but your focus is wrong if you're concentrating on your everyday needs rather than God and His sufficiency.

The first level of faith is:  no faith.  No faith is based on the belief that God does not care, and that such a belief is completely false.  God does indeed care for you!

The second level of faith is found in what Jesus says in Matthew 6:30-34,

“Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?  Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’  or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’  For after all these things the Gentiles seek.  For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.  But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.  Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things.  Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”

This second level of faith is little faith.  As we see in this passage, little faith is a worried faith, worried about tomorrow and occupied with lack instead of being occupied with God.       

While people with little faith believe God cares, their focus is wrong.  They are concentrating on, “What am I going to eat?  What am I going to wear?  How am I going to get by?”

Now, those are all legitimate things; and your Father knows you have need of those things.  So rather than focusing on your lack and being worried about tomorrow, pulling tomorrow’s clouds over today’s sunshine, let your focus be on God and His sufficiency, His care, and His abundant love.

Do not live a life of little faith.
