Mighty Putty Faith
Could Mighty Putty Wood pull Billy May’s ship out to sea?
Like me, you might have seen Billy Mays on the Pitchmen Show talk about all the majestic properties of Mighty Putty Wood and its miraculous feats. Billy was hanging from a boom on the HMS Bounty which is a reproduction, made in the 60’s for the movie, Mutiny on the Bounty. Two oars were joined together with Mighty Putty Wood and a chain was attached to both ends. One end of the chain was connected to a tugboat and the other chain end of the oar was connected to the HMS Bounty. Would the oars withstand the pull of the tugboat and the ship? It did and all were amazed.
This is a picture of me and my mustard-seed faith sometimes. Jesus says in Matt. 17:20, that if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you can move mountains.
I remember the time just about a year ago when I stood in a prayer line after a church service with a monumental need for deliverance of a burden I was carrying regarding a work situation. After my pastor prayed, I left the church and got in my car. I felt free for the first time in a week. I drove home singing in my car never to be attacked by that dark spirit again. My boss was more worried about me than the situation which turned out to be insignificant.
I remember another time the doctors chose not to operate on my husband’s stomach. They found a dark spot, eight centimeters, on his lung x-ray. We had to wait 3 weeks before they could perform a CAT scan. During that time, my mustard-seed faith stood on the healing promises of God. The CAT scan showed no abnormalities.
I’m encouraging myself today as I reflect on Jesus’ words. I have a mustard seed of faith and Jesus is the huge force in it that brings me victory through the gigantic challenges I’m currently facing. I expect to be amazed.
