Daily Devotion for September 18

He Is Greater

One in the crowd answered, “Teacher, I brought You my son, who has a mute spirit. Often it has thrown him into the fire and into the water to kill him. But if You can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.
- Mark 9:17,22

You may be facing failure, or perhaps you just received a bad report from the doctor. You may desperately need Jesus, but a faithless disciple may have destroyed your faith. One of the greatest obstacles to seeing lost souls won to the kingdom is the failure in the lives of professing Christians to live for Christ. They say one thing on Sunday--but on Monday, it's business as usual.

Jesus responded by telling the one who came to Him the problem was not with what He could do, but in what the man could believe, Jesus said, "Don't let the failures of my disciples destroy your faith in me. Look beyond their failures, Satan's antics, and your own disappointment."

With God . . . all things are possible. God is greater than demons, death, and disappointments. God can do anything!

Jesus, I will stop trusting in my own strength and I will trust in Yours. I confess that You are greater than any obstacle I face. Amen.
