And when they had come to the multitude, a man came to Him, kneeling down to Him and saying, “Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is an epileptic and suffers severely; for he often falls into the fire and often into the water. “So I brought him to Your disciples, but they could not cure him.”
– Matthew 17:14-16
It happens often that after great spiritual high’s and “mountain-top experiences” we then find ourselves immediately in a demon possessed valley. Peter, James and John had seen the Lord in all His glory on the mountain top, only to come down the mountain into a pressing trial.
It is important to keep in mind that mountain-top experiences and spiritual high’s are preparation for the low spiritual battles that are to come.
Be on guard. We are in a spiritual battle, so walk circumspectly.
