I am afraid that we often say we need more faith, when in truth we just don't want to do what God is calling us to do. Or we may be too scared to do what he wants, and we think extra faith will help us overcome our fears. I can list for you people who had only "a little" amount of faith and have gone on to do the mightiest of works for God. And it was all because they had the quality of faith in God, and not a truckload of faith in themselves.
How much faith have you been asking for lately? Have you been asking for more than you need? Are you thinking you will be better off if you had an overabundance? Do you think you can produce more for God with an extra supply? It is not the quantity of faith, but the quality of faith that makes a difference.
If you have faith in God, as He is revealed in his Holy Scriptures, then you can move mountains. You only need faith the size of a mustard seed if your faith is in the one who is larger than all of Creation!
