And Jesus said to him, “‘If you can’! All things are possible for one who believes.” Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, “I believe; help my unbelief!”
Mark 9:23-24 ESV
I’m not the best DIY’er, but with a video tutorial and some tools, I’ve saved some money fixing things around the house.
The video is what helped. It didn’t do it for me, but it gave me the confidence to try.
In the same idea, we don’t always have the faith we need. But God takes the little faith you have and uses it.
The man whose son was demon possessed asked Jesus for help. Jesus told him that all things are possible for those who believe.
The man said that he believed, but he needed help with his unbelief.
What he was saying is that he had some belief, but he didn’t feel he had enough. He didn’t feel worthy. Maybe he was far away from God too.
But, God can do a lot with a little!
He takes your faith and where you are and moves you. Are you desperate enough to allow Him to do that?
When you allow Him to move in your life, you then have an experience with the Lord that builds on your faith. So next time, you have a little bit more.
But sad is the person who has seen God move in their life and then hasn’t allowed that experience to build their faith for the next step.
How has God moved in your life? Have you allowed all those times to add to your faith?
Father, help me to live a faith filled life.
