24 Feb Believe
One of my favorite verses in all of the Bible was spoken in Mark 9 by a father, and he was able to verbalize exactly how I feel. He was begging Jesus to help his demon-possessed son, saying, “If you can do anything, take pity on us and help us.” Jesus replied, “Everything is possible for one who believes.”
Here’s my favorite part: the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”
I know exactly how he feels. I believe, but I need help believing. I believe with my head, but sometimes my heart needs some help. I believe it for others, but sometimes I need help believing it for myself. I believe in theory, but sometimes I need help believing it in reality.
Believe. I wish it were as simple as it sounds.
