A man came up to Jesus, knelt down before him, and said,”, 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.”
No wonder people say miracles died out when the Apostles did. Most of our world does not have the faith necessary to see them, much less perform them. Prayer, fasting and faith are what are needed to perform the miracles Jesus told us we would see and do. Have you seen miracles? I have. Check out your life and see how much you give to the Lord. It might open your eyes and your heart.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I have seen your miracles and know that you still bless us, as you did when Jesus walked the earth. Thank you for all that you do for us. In Jesus’ holy name, I give you thanks and praise!
You forsake not those who seek you, O Lord.
