The disciples were puzzled. They had failed to cast a demon from a boy. But Jesus succeeded. Wondering why they were ineffective, they approached Him privately and asked what they had done wrong.

He told them the problem was their “unbelief.” They just needed faith the size of a mustard seed but needed to put this faith into action. Then “nothing will be impossible for you.”

He said that “this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.” Jesus had prayed and fasted. He was equipped and prepared. As a result, He was ready to face any situation.

The Bible defines faith as “the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1). Faith helps us recognize a world only seen with spiritual eyes. But those preoccupied with the things of this world can be blind to this spiritual dimension.

When our minds are cluttered with thoughts from the world, it can be hard to believe God’s promises, to dwell in the Spirit, to walk by faith.

The Bible reminds us that God’s supernatural power is available to us. But to tap into this power, we need to be people of prayer, with an intimate relationship with God. Thinking His thoughts. Approaching the world His way. Confident to meet every challenge. Ready to put our faith into action.
