ECWA FOOD FOR THE DAY - Friday 22nd October 2021

TOPIC: THE POWER OF FAITH TEXT: MATTHEW 17 : 14 - 21 When Jesus, Peter, John and James returned from the mount of transfiguration, they found a helpless epileptic who had been brought for healing but this could not be done (vs. 16). This brings to mind the episode of worshipping the golden calf in the days of Moses. It was during Moses absence that the community of Israel changed their allegiance from Yahweh to worshipping the golden calf (Exodus 32:15-21). Now, should we attribute all epilepsy cases to Demon possession? The bottom line of this narrative is that the disciples who were unable to heal the sick person probed further in order to know why (vs. 19). It does not matter how many years we have spent in our relationship with Jesus Christ. What matters most is whether or not we genuinely believe in Him. When we have faith in the one we trust, we will see the power of God at work in all we do and ask from Him.

QUESTION To what extent do you trust Jesus Christ? PRAYER Dear Father, forgive me for not taking my relationship with You serious and help me to have faith in You, Amen.
