Matthew 17: 19-20 (NASB)
“Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not drive it out?” And He said to them, “Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly 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; and nothing will be impossible to you.””
Tonight when I was serving at The Shepherd Church at Porter Ranch as a greeter, an elder man with nice suit walking with a cane headed straight toward me. He raised my hand and placed it on his forehead. He said, “I want you pray for me and my serious headache…” I hesitated a second and asked myself in my heart “Why me?!” A voice told me “Just do it.” I knew where the voice came from so I did. Twenty minutes later the man came back with big smile on his face and told me that he feels much better now. I told him that’s our Lord’s healing power and his faith healed him. And the verses of Matthew 17:19-20 immediately raised in my heart. That’s the Lord’s teaching – whenever we bless or pray for someone we need to have these elements – TRUST, SINCERITY, and FAITH. With God nothing is impossible!
