In the midst of the crowd, this man came looking about. Before Jesus he did kneel. His pain the Lord did feel. My son, he suffers from an evil spirit. Even your disciples we did visit. But none could heal him at all. He'd just get a seizure, and falls. How unbelieving and wrong you people are! Even after I walked with you this far. Confused, the disciples took Jesus aside. Why not to our words did the demons abide? It is because you have insufficient faith. If that is the case, for your miracle - you'll only wait. I assure you if you have faith just as much as a tiny mustard seed, you will be able to pull out just about every weed. You could do anything ...with a little prayer and fasting. What is prayer? ...communion with God. And fasting is nothing, but denial of the flesh -that is something to applaud! Baptized in the Spirit, put on the complete armour of God. Stay in communion, in one accord. The Blood, the finished work of the Cross, With these on guard you are never at loss. The truth, the way and the life - readiness to proclaim; use your authority in faith to reclaim. Focus on the Word, Don't fumble or the deliverance will be deferred. -RUELHA (inspired by Matthew 17:14-21)
