When Faith Fails

So watch your step, friends. Make sure there’s no evil unbelief lying around that will trip you up and throw you off course, diverting you from the living God. Hebrews 3:12 (The Message)

No sooner were the words out of his mouth than the father cried, “Then I believe. Help me with my doubts!” Mark 9:24 (The Message)

Believing can sometimes be difficult when the circumstances of our lives are far from what we expected.

We want to have faith for something different but the scene is playing unfamiliar and uncomfortable.

So what does God ask of us in this situation?

    • To trust.
    • To believe anyway.
    • To look beyond our circumstance and see His power.
    • To believe He is our Helper and our Savior.
    • To trust Him as Lord over every single one of our challenges.

Ask Him like the father did in Mark 9:24. “Hey God, I’m having my doubts. Can you please help me in my unbelief? I want to believe but I’m struggling right now.”

He hears your cry for help in your unbelief. His power will help you believe more and more.

Just ask and trust He’s working on it.

Absolute trust.

Can you do it? I think you can and I’m praying for you now.

God bless your heart that cries out to God for strength and power. Just ask Him.
