Faith For The Seed (3 of 4)
Series: It Started With A Seed
Introduction: We are in need of a "faith increase" visitation of God upon our mind and spirit. The pressures of our day work against the person who desires to believe in something that is invisible, intangible, like God, the Holy Spirit, or the miracles of God at work.

Disappointed, he staggered back to a corner, but then noticed an old jug off to the side. He looked at it, wiped away the dirt and the dust, and read a message that said, "You have to prime the pump with all the water in this jug. P.S. Be sure to fill the jug again before you leave." He popped the cork, and sure enough, it was almost full of wat ...
