The Mustard Seed Summer

July 26, '08

Waking early the first thought I had come to my mind was "Mustard Seed". Being the very first day of our Odessa Summer Conference; I had a sense God had a special visitation for us this year in Odessa. Just days earlier we preached to a total of 6,000 people over a period of 4 days in Yuhzni Ukraine with Sports Power and Bruce Crevier at the city stadium, on Ukrainian Satelite TV as well as on the streets. Many responded on this crusade in Yuhzni and Mikolaiyev. Next week we have Andriej & Lecja's wedding in Odessa; a precious couple in the church with a great call on their lives.

Mat 17:20 So Jesus said to them, "Because of your* unbelief. For positively I say to you*, if you* are having faith like a grain of mustard [or, a mustard seed], you* will say to this mountain, 'Move from here [to] there,' and it will move, and nothing will be impossible to you*.

This Mustard Seed abides in us and is the least of all seeds, easily underestimated but an embarrassment for Satan. David had it as he approached Goliath, he was shamed by David's perspective of the situation and embarrassed Goliath. Our little portion, the loaves and the fishes, are enough for Jesus to multiply. The one word from Jesus "Come" is enough for Peter to walk on water, something no one has ever done before. The incorruptible seed in the believer is enough to overcome the world. Our mustard seed confession in God's unchanging nature is enough to change people's lives and turn the world, and neighborhood where we live.

What I haven't seen before is "you shall say to this mountain..." Not only does the Word of Grace have power to move mountains but the mountain will be moved to where we tell it to.

I believe God hides from us 90% of the affect we are having in our walks of faith so that it is just that, a walk of faith that it would be by grace in our lives.

Many precious things have happened this past month of July. Much fruit. Thank you for your prayers and support. Enjoy the slideshows below:
