However, in contrast, if we had God-like faith, huge Faith, massive Faith, unshakable, without a doubt faith, we can walk on water like Jesus did in Matthew 14. Well, I don’t know about you but is sounds a bit impossible to have that kind of faith. And that my friend is exactly where we want to be. In the realm of impossible faith, because who in the entire universe has accomplished the impossible? Who, as we have already mentioned has walked on water, fed 5,000 with 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish, and has given power to heal in His name. That’s right folks; you thought it and I’ll confirm it. The one and only Jesus (applaud now).
In the above reference Jesus says that if we can just obtain mustard seed faith that nothing will be impossible for us. Remember we asked, “Faith in what?” and we answered, “In what Jesus has done on the cross.” We answered that way not only because Jesus is an awesome role model and brother but because in Romans 12:3KJV, it says “For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.”
I get the impression from studying these verses that as human beings, with our finite minds, obtaining just 2 mm of faith is a difficult thing. God knows this about us. So as you can see above, in Romans 12:3 KJV, He has helped us out by giving every man the measure of faith. A percentage of the goal of the ability to walking on water. The passage goes on to say in Romans 12:5-8 KJV, “ So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching; Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.”
