Daily Devotion: The Why of Failure

Bible Reading: Matthew 17:14-21

Key Verse: Verse 19 - "Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?"

Key Words: Why could not we cast him out?

The disciples had failed in their attempt to cast out the demon from the young lunatic. Jesus’ answer is found in verse 21, “Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.” This takes total commitment.

When Julius Caesar landed on the shores of Britain with his Roman legions, he took a bold and decisive step to ensure the success of his military venture. Ordering his men to march to the edge of the Cliffs of Dover, he commanded them to look down at the water below. To their amazement, they saw every ship in which they had crossed the channel engulfed in flames. Caesar had deliberately cut off any possibility of retreat. Now that his soldiers were unable to return to the continent, there was nothing left for them to do but to advance and conquer! And that is exactly what they did.

You must get involved to have an impact. No one is impressed with the win-loss record of the referee.

What to do:
✞ He who fails to be committed, is thus committed to fail.
