but.. help me in my unbelief. This is from the classic story of healing found in Mark 9. There was a boy possessed by a spirit, and the boy's father asked for healing. Jesus replied, “If you can believe,all things are possible to him who believes.” The father replied, "Lord I believe, help me in my unbelief." I don't know if there has ever been a more honest response in our outside the bible than these well chosen words from this father. I think I should remember to say this at the end of each time I pray to God. I am in the middle of a 2 week work stretch that will be very demanding. It is consuming so many hours of my hard work where I am daily praying for God's blessing of my efforts. Truth is I believe God is blessing the outcome, but... Lord help me with my unbelief. If my faith were perfect, I would not have so many doubts, but being a 'bear of very little brain' (Winnie the Pooh quote) I do honestly have doubts. Sometimes they are doubts in my faith and understanding of God, and other times they are doubts in myself where the only answer is praying and believing with my faith the size of a mustard seed which in another famous scripture Mt 17:20 is told can move a mountain into the sea. Mountain into the sea? Thank you, but today I am ok with where the mountains are at, but but use help where I am weak. Good news because we are also taught.. 2 Corinthians 12:9-11..where I am weak because He is strong. May God bless each of you today with honesty and peace that God understands what we do not understand.. and he is strong when we are weak. May we pray, believe, and trust in these truths.
