Help My Unbelief

Mark 9:24 (ESV) … “Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, “I believe; help my unbelief!”


“Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief”CommentsWith a man’s heart (spirit) he can accept the things of God, while with his “natural mind” he struggles to understand the things of God. Jesus still responded to this man’s faith, because of his honest and sincere heart. Note these words from Frances J. Roberts:


“Never stifle the cry in your heart. God put it there. God puts no special premium on our perennial spiritual Pollyannas. His joy springs forth most abundantly in souls that have been soaked in tears. Not the tears of self-pity. Never. But the tears of devotion and longing after Him. Weep. But when you weep, weep in His arms. Doubt if you must, but tell each doubt to Him candidly. You will be surprised how quickly they will melt away. His love and His smile will dispel every doubt as silently and surely as sunshine removes frost. You cannot look in His face and doubt at the same time!”[1]
