Read: Matthew 17:14-20 Open Heaven 12 March 2019
14 And when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying,
15 Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for of times he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water.
16 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him.
17 Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me.
18 And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.
19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, why could not we cast him out?
20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

Message:- Open Heaven 12 March 2019 Tuesday Daily Devotional
From our Lord’s message in today’s Bible text, we learn that
mountains symbolise the challenges of life. The good news is that Jesus also
assures us in this teaching that we can be mountain movers, even if our faith
is as small as a mustard seed. In the story captured in today’s Bible reading,
the demons of insanity constituted not only a nuisance to the life of a young
man and his father, they were also a source of embarrassment to the disciples
of Jesus Christ, as they refused to leave the boy after the disciples had
commanded them to. Why were the disciples not able to cast these demons out?
Jesus explained that it was because of their unbelief!
This is food for thought for those of us who call ourselves
men and women of faith. Before this event, the disciples might have felt that
they had faith, but when their faith, was put to test, they failed. One can
safely assume that before the disciples embarked on trying to deliver the young
man of these demons, they must have believed that God was able to use them to
carry out this deed. In the same way, one would assume that before people leave
their homes for a church programme, they must possess a level of faith to
receive from God. However, experience has shown that such assumptions are not
always valid. Many people are very religious but don’t have faith at all.

To be a mover of mountains, you must possess the right kind of faith. Beloved, what kind of faith do you have? Is it living or deed faith? It is not the size of faith that matters; what matters is whether the faith is alive or not. Before confronting a mountain, you need to check if you have the right kind of faith that can move mountains. An example of someone with mountain-moving faith is the Canaanite woman in Matthew 15:22-28. She came to Jesus so that her daughter could be delivered of the evil spirit that troubled her. In spite of all the discouraging obstacles thrown her way, she convinced herself that the only solution to her challenge lay with Jesus Christ, and so she would not let Him go. The result of her tenacity is clearly seen in Matthew 15:28, which says:
“Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.”
Some people seem to have alternatives to the miracle-working
Jesus, and so, after they have tried Him once or twice and things seem not to
be working, they go looking for a solution elsewhere. Mountain movers tarry
long with the Master until their petition is granted. I join my faith with
yours and decree that those intimidating mountains in your life are removed
today in Jesus’ Name.
