Matthew 17:14-21

Matthew 17:14-21

An epileptic son that could not be cured by Jesus' disciples.  
Jesus rebukes the demon and it came out of the child and was cured that very hour.  
This type of demon does not come out except by prayer and fasting.  

To have faith like a mustard seed.  So small.  Jesus told the disciples they could not get the demon out because of their unbelief.  But Jesus could.

Application:  sometimes it's seems like there are mountains to big for the miracles.  I struggle with doubt and unbelief in those areas...  Forgetting what God has already done in those moments and looking at the glass half empty in discouragement.  
I need to be making more of an effort to pray when something is broken.  Need to be able to take time to pray instead of fretting worrying or doubting.  

Lord please help my unbelief.  And please help me be once again blown away at the power of seeing You answer prayers in the way You see fit. Not my will but Yours be done.
