A Davidic Psalm.
“The LORD is the one who is shepherding me; I lack nothing.
He causes me to lie down in pastures of green grass; he guides me beside quiet waters.
He revives my life; he leads me in pathways that are righteous for the sake of his name.
Even when I walk through a valley of deep darkness, I will not be afraid because you are with me. Your rod and your staff—they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me, even in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Truly, goodness and gracious love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will remain in the LORD’s Temple forever.”
Matthew 17: 14 – 20
“Jesus and his disciples returned to the crowd. A man knelt in front of him and said, “Lord, have pity on my son! He has a bad case of epilepsy and often falls into a fire or into water.
I brought him to your disciples, but none of them could heal him.”
Jesus said, “You people are too stubborn to have any faith! How much longer must I be with you? Why do I have to put up with you? Bring the boy here.”
Then Jesus spoke sternly to the demon. It went out of the boy, and right then he was healed.
Later the disciples went to Jesus in private and asked him, “Why couldn’t we force out the demon?”
Jesus replied: It is because you don’t have enough faith! But I can promise you this. If you had faith no larger than a mustard seed, you could tell this mountain to move from here to there. And it would. Everything would be possible for you. “
Psalm 119:11 (NIV)
11 I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you.
