Mat 17:20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: (if it is because of unbelief then it can happen because of your faith) 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. Mat 17:21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting. The mustard seed is a very small seed but grows into the greatest of all herbs. So our faith must be growing and increasing.
