Luke 17:5,6 “The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!” And the Lord said, “If you had faith like a mustard seed, you would say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and be planted in the sea’ “

Rather than Jesus just laying hands on them and imparting faith, Jesus wants us to place our faith in an all powerful God. Faith in Jesus is what can move mountains on our behalf. Remember, faith without works is dead, we must be active in our faith and proclaim the word of God in faith. If people are sick, proclaim healing in Jesus name (1 Peter 2:24). If people are spiritually blinded, proclaim the light of Christ to come upon them. If people need deliverance, proclaim the captives must be set free. We are not doing this out of our own flesh or thinking, but done under the power of the Holy Spirit. Check out this passage.

Luke 4:18,19 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me, To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.

We must be submitted to the Spirit of the Lord for all these things to take place. May we seek to glorify Jesus alone!
