Mark 9:21-24

“And Jesus asked his father, “How long has this been happening to him?” And he said, “From childhood. And it has often cast him into fire and into water, to destroy him. But if you can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.” And Jesus said to him, “‘If you can’! All things are possible for one who believes.” Immediately the father of the child cried outand said, “I believe; help my unbelief!”

  • Many of us state that we believe like this boy’s father stated, but we do not seek more belief like the father did. Claiming Christianity through true belief in Jesus Christ is essential to our salvation. If you are saved you have been saved by faith. We believe that Jesus took our payment for sin and that we will abide with Him throughout eternity with our Father God in Heaven. The problem most of us have is that we limit God’s sovereignty and power by relying on our own power and ability. No matter how long we have struggled with a problem, God can relieve us of it. We should never doubt the power of Christ in us, but we should admit to God where we are lacking in faith, pray that He will increase our faith in Him in those areas, and determine in our mind to fully trust God to handle all situations. He is “The Great ‘I Am’”! May we continually seek to increase our faith through prayer, being in God’s Word, and walking boldly with other Christians, which is essential to a life of peace and assurance, no matter what circumstance we are in.
  • Will you pray to God today for a faith that allows a peace that passes all understanding?

Dear Lord, we admit that there are areas in our life where our faith is weak. Please increase our faith and give us a heart and yearning to seek You through your Word and through prayer so that our faith in You will never waiver. Amen

Proverbs 15:1

“A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” We have total control of how we talk to others. We must choose to either honor God or to remain prideful and self-righteous. May God be glorified in our responses. Do your answers induce anger or turn people from it? Matthew 12:34 “…..For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.” Proverbs 14:10 “Each heart knows its own bitterness, and no one else can share its joy.” Psalm 139:23-24 “Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” Proverbs 15:18 “A hot-tempered man stirs up strife, but he who is slow to anger quiets contention.” Proverbs 15:28 “The heart of the righteous ponders how to answer, but the mouth of the wicked pours out evil things.” James 1:19-20 “Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.” Dear Lord, please guide us to be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to anger.
