Mark 9:28 (KJV) 28 And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out?
With all the intimacy the disciples had with the Lord Jesus, there were still some things they did not know and some things they could not do.
Even in a saints’ most spiritual state, Jesus is still set apart so highly from us, we will be in continuous process of learning from Him.
Just because we’re unable to accomplish what we need to accomplish doesn’t mean we’re not living up to our call and duty as believers; we’re just presented with new opportunities of learning, higher levels to attain, more understanding of our Lord’s words, will, and ways.
It’s okay to ask the Lord questions; many times, the most spiritual thing we can do is to ask questions.
There’s a huge difference between asking the Lord questions and questioning Him.
When we succeed in something other believers don’t succeed in; it doesn’t mean we’re more spiritual than them; it may just be because we cover the area needed to succeed in a specific situation, and they cover another area where they succeed in and we won’t.
We’re not disappointed when there are some things we haven’t yet learned or areas we’re not gifted with because we have already been taught many things and we’ve been given gifts in many areas.
