“So I spoke to Your disciples, that they could cast it out,

but they could not.”

 (Mark 9:17)

 

At the bottom of the mountain, the disciples were powerless against the demonic activity that violently gripped this young boy. This impossibility was bigger than their faith. The only thing left for them to do was wait for power to come down from the mountain and deliver them from their powerlessness. Likewise, when you’re at the bottom of the mountain and the leadership is at the top, be careful whom you listen to. When you find yourself at the bottom of the mountain, remember that hope is on the way for the helpless.
