Help My Unbelief

Read:  Mark 11:22-24 "Then Jesus said to the disciples, 'Have faith in God.  I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, 'May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,' and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen have no doubt in your heart.  I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you've received it, it will be yours."

Prayer changes things!   Jesus told us himself that we have the authority to say to the mountain, 'mountain be lifted up and thrown into the sea and it will happen'.  What is your mountain?   What are you facing right now that is big and stands in front of you, glaring at you, starring you down? It's big, it's huge, it's rocky, and it's just too hard to climb.  You can't even see over it!    

We all have mountains - hurdles that we can't seem to get through.     Jesus told us to speak to the mountain and tell it to be gone - cast into the sea!       Jesus tell us that if we believe (really believe, and have no doubt) that what we ask for we will receive it.

In Mark, chapter 9, we see father who had a mountain in front of him.   He brought his son to Jesus to be healed of an evil spirit.  The spirit would cause the boy to have seizures and it (the spirit) would throw the boy violently to the ground, cause him to foam at the mouth, grind his teeth and become rigid.   The father told Jesus that the spirit would often times throw the boy into the fire or into the water trying to kill him.   The father said to Jesus, "Have mercy on us and help us, if you can".    Jesus said, "What do you mean, if I can?  Anything is possible if a person believes".   The Father instantly cried out, "I do believe, but help me overcome my unbelief!"   

How many times do we feel like this father?  Desperate for something to change, for a mountain to move, but we struggle with this BIG thing called unbelief.    You see, we can be in faith and unbelief at the same time .... and one can outweigh the other.      

Anything is possible if a person believes.

If you are finding yourself facing a mountain and you are struggling with unbelief - dig into the word of God.....  Faith comes from hearing and hearing by the Word of God.  God's Word is your answer to getting rid of unbelief!
