Faith of a Mustard Seed

Jesus said to him, “I will come and heal him.” - Mathew 8:7
On a recent bike ride, I stopped and talked with an older man in a wheelchair. We made small talk about the beautiful morning and the need for rain. “Bill” mentioned that he was getting some weeds in his yard. I mentioned that what I considered weeds, “invasive species” a few years ago, I now appreciate how creation is showing me what is truly important. These “weeds” are full of medicinal value.
As I started to pedal off, the Holy Spirit prompted me to ask Bill, “How is your faith in God? Is it as big as a mustard seed?” He shook his head no. The Holy Spirit then prompted me to say, “I ride this circuit routinely. When you do have the faith of a mustard seed, through the healing power of Jesus Christ, I will command you to rise and walk.” We smiled at one another, and I pedaled off. God arranged this encounter. He always brings people together for His purpose. Thanks be to God!
All life and healing come from God!
