“God has been FAITHFUL to me, that is why I have FAITH in Him.”

You were made by God and for God, and until you understand that, life will never make sense. Rick Warren: (born January 28, 1954: is an American evangelical Christian pastor and author.)

Gospel Text: (MT 17:14-20)
A man came up to Jesus, knelt down before him, and said,
"Lord, have pity on my son, who is a lunatic and suffers severely;
often he falls into fire, and often into water.
I brought him to your disciples, but they could not cure him."
Jesus said in reply,
"O faithless and perverse generation, how long will I be with you?
How long will I endure you?
Bring the boy here to me."
Jesus rebuked him and the demon came out of him,
and from that hour the boy was cured.
Then the disciples approached Jesus in private and said,
"Why could we not drive it out?"
He said to them, "Because of your little faith.
Amen, I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed,
you will say to this mountain,
'Move from here to there,' and it will move.
Nothing will be impossible for you."

The insurmountable can be accomplished by the infinitesimal.  Faith – even a small and fragile faith – has the power to unleash God’s healing grace in our lives.  That is what Jesus tells us.  And when we doubt his words, we are to listen to that thunderous cloud-covered, mountain-top voice: “Listen to him.”
