We’ve been talking a lot about building your faith this past week. Today, as I was driving to work, Bryson was playing a video game and made a statement that caught my attention.

He was playing a video game in which there were fighter planes and one of the planes had become weak because it had been hit so many times. This was the only plane Bryson had left on his game at that time.

At first, he wasn’t very happy about it. But then he said ‘Nana, a weak plane is better than no plane at all, right?’ I said, ‘what buddy?’ He repeated, ‘a weak plane is better than no plane at all, right?’ It jumped in my spirit. I said ‘Yes, Buddy, a weak plane is better than no plane at all.’

I began to think about how we have been talking about building your faith and how some of our readers may be discouraged because they may feel their faith is not strong enough to take them where God wants to take them or to bring forth the fruit in their life that they are believing for.

Just like Bryson said, ‘a weak plane is better than no plane at all.’ Weak faith is better than no faith at all.

I think about the man who asked Jesus to heal him and Jesus replied, ‘do you believe I am able to do this.’ In pure honesty, the man replied, ‘Lord I believe, help my unbelief.’

You know, sometimes we are faith giants in one area but have a weaker faith in another area. For instance, if we have suffered physically in our body for a long period of time, it could possibly affect our faith and cause it to not be as strong as it once was.

Or you may have gone through a season of lack where it seemed that God did not answer your prayers when you needed them answered concerning provision. Perhaps after a while you begin to distrust that God will bring forth provision. You still want to have faith, you may even have a little faith, just not as much as you used to have.

A little faith is at least something to build on and it is much better than having no faith at all.

The bible says in Luke 17:6; ‘So, the Lord said, “If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.’

Have you ever seen a mustard seed? It is quite small. So, what is Jesus saying? He is saying ‘if you have just a little bit of faith, you can speak to this tree and it will be uprooted.’ Just a little bit of faith.

We can do things to help our faith grow. That’s another interesting thing about a mustard seed, though it is very small, once grown, it is massive. It is the same with your faith. As you daily water your faith with the living word of God, it will grow into something larger than you ever imagined.

Just as Jesus did for the man that day, even in his admission of little faith, He still honored his faith and brought healing. He can do the same for you.

Just like Bryson’s plane, even a weak plane can fly. So, it is with your faith, even if your faith is weak, you can still fly in God. So…fly!

Prayer for today: Father, I thank you for helping me to fly. Help me to build my faith and increase my faith, but in the meantime, help me to overcome with the faith I have. In Jesus name. Amen.
