And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you    —Matthew 17:20

Jesus could not have been talking about the size of faith in the scripture above  because that only means He was contradicting Himself. On several occasions, Jesus rebuked His disciples for having little faith (Mtt. 8:26; 14:31). Why rebuke the disciples for having little faith?

'LITTLE' FAITH CAN BE DANGEROUS!

The reason is that, little faith could end up doing more harm than good to them. If little faith could achieve something great or move mountains, Jesus would have commended them rather than rebuke them for having little faith. While it is true that a mustard seed is very small, but it is no less a seed. In one of His teachings, Jesus said that though the mustard seed is the smallest of all seeds, when it is sown, it becomes the greatest of all herbs (Mk. 4:30-32).

'MUSTARD SEED FAITH' MEANS 'GENUINE FAITH'

A mustard seed in hand is not easily noticeable, but it does not change the authenticity of the seed. If your faith is as real and genuine as a mustard seed, only then can you move mountains. Though Jesus agrees that the mustard seed is quite small, he added that the transformation occurs once it is sown. Therefore, you cannot claim to be acting in faith if you don’t release your faith—by acting on what you claim to believe.

When someone says, “Although I am sure I have faith, but what, if nothing happens when I speak? What if my decree does not come to pass?” This simply shows that what he has is not real faith!

A 'SEED' IS TO A FARMER WHAT 'FAITH' IS TO THE BELIEVER

Consider a farmer who holds seeds in his hands, but begins to doubt the ability of those seed to germinate and produce a harvest. A seed is a seed and all things being equal, it will germinate. You can’t have faith and begin to wonder whether or not you have it.

The mustard seed principle refers to the genuineness and authenticity of what you have on the inside of you. It is not something that other people may believe if you tell them.

This is why Jesus never said you should go about telling people you have faith; rather, you should speak to the situation directly.

A lifestyle of faith may not make sense to people, notwithstanding, Jesus said if you have it, you will move mountains!

FAITH IS NOT ABOUT SIZE

Moving the mountains in your life is all about how real your faith is, not how small or big it is. In a nutshell, no matter the level of faith you operate in at the moment, Jesus says your faith will still move mountain!
