Jesus sent the disciples on a mission and His instructions were very clear.
Heal the sick.
Raise the dead.
Cast out demons.
Yet, just a short time after departing on their journey, they encounter a man with a sick son. And the result is puzzling.
I begged your disciples to cast out the spirit but they could not. Luke 9:40
I brought him to your disciples but they could not heal him. Matthew 17:16
Even the disciples are confused. “Why couldn’t we do it?” they asked Jesus. The answer was just as simple as the mission.
Because of their little faith.
A lack of faith will prevent us from fulfilling our God-given missions. Our ministries will be unfruitful. Our witnesses will be ineffective. Our spirits will be unsatisfied.
What is God calling you to do?
You are loved. <3
