How Do You Have Faith In God And In His Promises?
Dear Friend, Ask God for Help. God will help you. God will help me. God will help us all as we continue to seek Him with all our hearts. We can do everything through Christ who gives us strength (Philippians 4:13).
I am reminded and encouraged by an account from the Bible. The particular verse that I keep recalling is “I believe, help my unbelief!” (Mark 9:24) It is a reminder that we all sometimes struggle with doubt. That’s just life. We just have to keep going back to God again and again to help us. We must never rely on our own strength or our own power, it will fail us.
Here are the surrounding scriptures for that verse:
Mark 9:17-25, NIV A man in the crowd answered, “Teacher, I brought you my son, who is possessed by a spirit that has robbed him of speech. 18Whenever it seizes him, it throws him to the ground. He foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth and becomes rigid. I asked your disciples to drive out the spirit, but they could not.” 19″You unbelieving generation,” Jesus replied, “how long shall I stay with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring the boy to me.” 20So they brought him. When the spirit saw Jesus, it immediately threw the boy into a convulsion. He fell to the ground and rolled around, foaming at the mouth. 21Jesus asked the boy’s father, “How long has he been like this?” “From childhood,” he answered. 22″It has often thrown him into fire or water to kill him. But if you can do anything, take pity on us and help us.” 23″‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.” 24Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!” 25When Jesus saw that a crowd was running to the scene, he rebuked the impure spirit. “You deaf and mute spirit,” he said, “I command you, come out of him and never enter him again.”
When I struggle with periods of doubt or unbelief, I say this prayer. I ask God to please help me overcome my unbelief. I ask God for help. God wants to help! See also: Bible Verses about God Helping Us & God Helping You.
Dear Friends, Go to God In Prayer. Please remember that you can talk to God anywhere, anytime. You don’t even have to speak audibly, God can hear your thoughts. You can talk to God while you are taking a shower or while you are lying down in bed. Our goal is to always have a line of communication open with God, so communicating with God is natural and continual (1 Thessalonians 5:17). God will bless your efforts as you continue to seek Him, Amen. Let’s keep Trusting God one day at a time!
