“Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!””Mark 9:24
Have you ever been in this situation? You believe, but you don’t think God can change or do something about it.
There are so many believers that don’t believe!
Or maybe it is that you believe, but you don’t have faith because of the experiences in your past.
We limit our belief by what didn’t happen for us in the past. So are you a believer only in the good times or all times?
We need to be full of faith. We need to be steadfast in our faith.
Let us have faith like the centurion to hear Jesus say in amazement “Truly I tell you, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith…Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go! Let it be done just as you believed it would.” And his servant was healed at that moment.” Matthew 8:10, 13
Our belief will garner the results that we want. Do we truly believe what we believe in? Do we live what we believe?
Life is a not easy and comes with complications that can cause us to question our belief. Even John the Baptist questioned his beliefs. Who after baptizing Jesus and heard God speak from the heavens.
We are all human and experience this. But we can’t lose faith in the good or bad times.
Jesus came in to this world to bring hope, joy and peace. This season, don’t put your hope in the gifts, food, and Christmas parties. Believe and celebrate that your Savior was born and may we all believe in what Simeon said when he saw baby Jesus:
“For my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the sight of all nations: a light for revelation to the Gentiles…” Luke 2:30-32
Food for thought: God wants to use you… Don’t let your experience determine your faith and conviction. The world continues to change and many times we may question what we believe, but never question WHO you believe in.
Prayer: Creator. Omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient God. Our alpha and omega. Forgive us our unbelief and our ability to be swayed by the wind depending on what the world throws at us. Grant us thy courage and strength. We ask for your wisdom. Help us overcome our unbelief. In Jesus name. amen
May God’s grace, peace and mercy be with you.
