Help My Unbelief

TODAY’S VERSE
“Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed. – Abraham never wavered in believing God’s promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this he brought glory to God. He was fully convinced that God is able to do whatever he promises.”
Romans 4:18, 20-21
“The father instantly cried out, ‘I do believe, but help me overcome my unbelief!’”
Mark 9:24

TODAY’S MESSAGE
Everyday you get a choice. Circumstances may change but your choice never does. Will you choose to live with faith and hope today or not? You don’t get much time to make up your mind. Fear comes knocking on your heart’s door. He brings worry and doubt with him. Self pity, anger and apathy are right behind. Before you know it, you have wandered down the road with all those familiar companions that you have walked with so many times before. Faith and hope were never invited to come along. It would be like inviting light to join darkness. They can’t coexist. Abraham was no different than you or I. He was human. He had emotions. He had struggles and disappointment. But he knew God and he chose, against all hope, to hope. He decided not to waiver in believing God and the result was that his faith grew. As his faith grew he became convinced the God was able to do whatever He promised. God can grow this same faith in you. You can respond today the same way the father who wanted his boy healed by Jesus did. When Jesus told him, “Anything is possible if a person believes.” the father said, “I do believe, but help me overcome my unbelief!’”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I want to believe with all my heart. I want to experience Your supernatural presence in my life. So, today, I choose hope. Today, I choose to put my faith in You. I cry out from the depth of my being, “I do believe, help me overcome my unbelief!” Thank You that You will indeed help my faith get stronger. In Jesus’ name. AMEN

A Simple Thing

TODAY’S VERSE
“This is what the LORD says: This dry valley will be filled with pools of water! You will see neither wind nor rain, says the LORD, but this valley will be filled with water. You will have plenty for yourselves and your cattle and other animals. But this is only a simple thing for the LORD.”
2 Kings 3:16-18 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
I love the faith of Elisha. He is telling everyone that God is going to do this mighty miracle. God was going to fill a desert with water without rain! And yet Elisha glibly adds, “But this is only a simple thing for the Lord.” Why is this so hard for us to believe? Why do we so often vacillate between faith and unbelief? Most of the time when I have doubt, it is because I do not know what the will of God will be in a given situation. I seem to lack confidence in how to pray. Other times it is simply a lack of faith. I need to be reminded what Elisha was trying to say; miracles are not too hard for God. So how should I pray? I think I need to pray as God leads me. Elisha was close to God and it was God’s Spirit that came upon him and led him to believe. Deep communion with God will do the same for me. I should be able to ask Him for mighty things and have the assurance that nothing is too hard for God. So if a miracle does not happen, let it be due to the sovereignty of God, not in fact that I did not believe or never asked. Today let us seek God’s face in all matters and pray in faith believing. Answering prayer is a simple thing for the Lord.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, thank You for Your mighty miracles. Help me to trust in You. Give me see with Your eyes. Help me to commune with You and really know Your heart so I can pray in faith believing.
AMEN

A Deeper Faith

TODAY’S VERSE
“For they did not believe God or trust him to care for them.”
Psalms 78:22 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
I must admit that I am guilty. I do not always believe God or trust Him to care for me. I am not being glib, I am not proud of it. And even though I deeply believe in the grace of God, I shutter when I think of God’s anger toward the Israelites for their unbelief. My unbelief goes against God’s Holy plan for mankind. My fear, because I doubt whether or not God wants to or even can care for me, flies in the face of everything God wants to do in my life. I get up some mornings and the best I can mustard is, “Lord, I believe, help my unbelief.” But the amazing fact is, He hears my prayer. He knows my fears, He knows my doubts and as I commune with Him, His Holy Spirit prays on my behalf and starts to churn hope, and faith and perseverance deep into my heart. And I press on. I cry, “I believe Lord, help my unbelief” and God begins to reveal Himself and I start to believe all over again. His faithfulness is greater than my forgetfulness. His nurturing, caring, loving grace is greater than all my sin, even my unbelief. This I truly believe. Today, repent, believe and trust Him. He does care for you.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I am so glad I can come to You in my human frailty. I ask forgiveness for my unbelief. I need You and trust You to speak to me, comfort me and guide me into a deeper faith.
AMEN

Love Not Fear

TODAY’S VERSE
“I, yes I, am the one who comforts you. So why are you afraid of mere humans?”
Isaiah 51:12 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
What is the opposite of “love”? Our first answer would no doubt be “hate.” I use to think so. However, the longer I live, the more I believe “fear” is the opposite of love. True, if I am going to act the opposite of love, it would be to hate. But if I am going to live in the opposite of love, it is fear! Fear keeps us from love’s reality. Fear tells us that the promises of love are nothing but lies. Fear chooses to doubt love’s sincerity. Worse, it doubts the lover. When we choose to believe fear, it means we have chosen not to believe God. He says, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” And yet we act as if we are abandoned, all alone with God no where is sight. We need to start seeing God as God. We need to give up our fear beliefs and start to bond with God. We need to meditate on His love for us and then appropriate that love to every moment in our life. He is the one who comforts us. He is the one who will never leave us. He is the one who will never stop loving us. Today, believe it, rejoice in it, live as if it is true. It is.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I confess I live much of my life in quiet desperation. Fear is constantly challenging my faith. It stands between me and You. Today, I renounce that fear. I rebuke it in Your name and choose to believe in Your love for me. I believe you have not left me and will not forsake me. Help me, Father, to abandon fear and run to Your love. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Lies

TODAY’S VERSE
“And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:19 (NLT)

TODAY’S MESSAGE
Does it seem hard to believe some of the Scriptures? We read today’s passage and if we listen closely, we can hear an inner dialog start to deny whether it is true or not. It may be, “Why should God help me?” “God didn’t help me last time.” It could be a muffle sound from a deeper level saying, “I don’t deserve His help.” “It will never work out.” These are lies that keep us from believing the truth of God’s love for us. I wish I could simply say, “Hey, stop believing a lie and believe the truth” and everything will work out. But it isn’t that easy. You see, lies often serve a purpose and until the need for the lie is taken care of, we will keep lying to ourself. If I am hurting because of a trauma I experienced, then simply pointing out the lies I believe will not change anything. I need Jesus to help heal the pain from my trauma, then I will be free to destroy the lie. We need to get beyond the lie that God will never help me and ask, “What happened that I feel that way?” Bring that pain to God, ask Him to heal your pain and then you will find the ability to believe the truth.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I am often hampered by lies I choose to believe instead of believing Your word. I have wounds, hurts, scars that have left me believing the wrong things. I need you to heal me. Lord, come visit my pain. Speak truth to my heart. Heal me. Set me free to believe the truth of Your love for me. I pray in Jesus’ name.
AMEN
