“Help my Unbelief!”

April 6, 2014

Mark 9:24

Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!”


Having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ is what Christianity is all about. But no where in the Bible does it say that this is easy. No matter where you are in your walk with the Lord, you have been, or you will be bombarded with constant trials and struggles. You will (continue)face fear, doubt, insecurity and unbelief.

Know that you are not alone in this.

The verse above is taken from a story in Mark, where a man brings his demon possessed son to the disciples first, then to Jesus. But although this man came to Jesus, his belief in the power of Jesus was not rock solid.

What really stands out to me is the request of this man. Of course what Jesus did was amazing and deserves way more credit, but for this message lets focus on the reaction of the man.

This man was not afraid to humble himself before the Lord and say: “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!”.

The Lesson for us is that we must come to the Lord, acknowledging Him as Lord, in our hearts and mouth. We then must be able to humble ourselves to the point of admitting any sin, weakness or fear before His throne. We must understand that He is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords which means He knows all. So why keep acting like He doesn’t?

We serve a God that truly Loves You and wants the best for you. Lets boldly approach His Throne in prayer, admit your struggles, doubts and fears and ask Him to Help you. Keep seeking Him, don’t give up if you don’t hear a voice thunder from heaven. Don’t give up if all your problems don’t just disappear. God wants to deliver you, but more than that He wants genuine repentance, genuine desire for a deeper, richer more intimate relationship with HIM for now and eternity!
