verses 19-20: Then the disciples came to Jesus in private and asked, “Why couldn’t we drive it out?” He replied, “Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ’Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
What can I take from this lesson? The disciples were given special specific powers to heal. What power have I been given? God doesn’t always let me know where my actions lead. God is the one who provides the increase, and the change. So, what is my power, and how does my faith affect that power? I don’t think I am to know. I am only to have faith God is with me, and allows His Spirit to work through me. If I don’t believe, I won’t be a part of the healing.
Holy Father, help me. Your Spirit lives in me, and I have the power to let others see you living in me. Help me to have faith. You are the power, and you have allowed me to be part of the process. I am so thankful, and will try to be worthy of this. Amen
