TOPIC: Faith and Doubt
"Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, 'I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!'" - Mark 9:24.
The father in this story wanted his son to be healed and had faith, but it wasn't perfect faith. He cried out for God to help him and Jesus granted his desire and healed his son. This is certainly good news for you. Your faith doesn't have to be perfect and doubt-free for it to be effective. You simply have to wrestle with the imperfections and not allow them to rule the day. Do you let your doubts disturb your faith? Do your doubts keep you from moving in faith? Does the fact that you have doubts cause you to think that your faith is ruined and inoperative?
Lord, I have faith! I know You can do anything and I pray to You regularly. Today I am set free. I realize that my faith does not have to be perfect, but it has to be dominant over all other considerations. From this point, I know You will help me overcome my unbelief as I stand firm on the faith I have. Thank You!
