Pause…
Take a couple of deep breaths.
Recall that you are in the presence of God.
You are loved and blessed.

Luke 17:5–6
5 The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!”
6 The Lord replied, “If you had faith the size of a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.

What would you do if you believed you could not fail. Putting a man on the moon, building the great wall of China, come to mind. Curing Polio, creating the light bulb are all examples of work done by people who kept trying even after hundreds or thousands of failures. Is that what Jesus means? Between the time of Christ’s death and 350 AD which was a time of great persecution. Christianity grew from the 12 to over 30 million perhaps as much as 1/3 of the know world at that time.

What would you do if you knew you could not fail?
What will do through Christ who gives you strength?

Pray to God, using these words or others as you see fit.
Holy God,
Thank you for all that I have, all that you have given me.
You say to seek you first and all things will be given me.
Help my faith, increase it, let me look only to you in all that I do.
Show me what you would have me do in your name.
Give me the faith to step out and follow you in all that I do
Amen
