Mark 9:24 is probably one of the most honest verses in all of the Bible. A father brings his son to Jesus who has been possessed by an evil spirit and essentially says to Him, “If you can do anything, please help us!” Jesus replies by telling him that all things are possible for those who believe.
Mark 9:24 contains the father’s response to Jesus:
“I do believe; help my unbelief!”
Have you ever felt that way — where you believe but you need Jesus to help your unbelief? I know I have. Because God’s ways are higher than ours, we will absolutely encounter moments and issues we don’t fully understand. And so, we will also have moments of doubt.
But something I love that my pastor challenges us with often:
The more you see God move. The more you witness Him keep His promises – both in His Word and to you personally. The more you feel His peace and His presence when every inch of your flesh “knows” you should be freaking out. The more the Holy Spirit works in you. The more you realize how infinitely far God’s grace extends.
It becomes easier to doubt your doubt than it does to stay in your doubt.
