Help My Unbelief!

ocean-864995_640

Hello dear ones,

I came across this video today during my cyber travels and felt I just had to share it with you all. Please don’t let the title put you off! This is not just a message for unsaved people.

Okay (I hear you ask), just where does the issue of evil come in? Well, before I explain, let me first introduce the following text:

So watch your step, friends. Make sure there’s no evil unbelief lying around that will trip you up and throw you off course, diverting you from the living God.

Hebrews 3:12 (The Message)

 

As you can see from the above quote, God tells us in no uncertain terms that unbelief is evil.

Now please understand that I am not accusing anyone of being evil.  However, because the Bible clearly tells us unbelief is evil, we have to accept that any belief system or predominant thought pattern contrary to God’s Word, is therefore evil.

Now, I’d be very surprised if there are any amongst us who will deny that they’ve had their struggles with unbelief. In fact, let me be the first to put my hand up and admit that I’ve struggled with this in the past and it has become even more an issue for me since witnessing the declining health of my dear mother.

Again and again, I’ve had to cry out to my Father God with the same desperate prayer uttered in Mark 9:24: “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!”.

Dear precious reader, if you are struggling with believing God’s promises because of a delay to your prayers, or if you feel confused and discouraged about perplexing world events or any other negative circumstance, don’t shrug your shoulders and remain passive in whatever situation seems to be at odds with God’s Word and don’t entertain the lies of the Enemy.

Carry your burdens and troublesome issues to God in prayer. Ask Him to work within your heart and bring you to the place where you can trust Him with all of your heart and not lean upon your own understanding (Proverbs 3:5).

And dear reader, if you are someone who has not yet made a commitment to Christ, I pray your heart will be open to the Spirit of God, as he woos you with his Word and soothes you with this beautiful music.

If this post, or the video speaks to you please let me know in the comment box below – even if it is to reiterate that prayer from Mark 9:24. Thank you.

WoW! followers and visitors have an exceedingly blessed weekend.

  1. god didn’t say a thing! the author of hebrews wrote what he wrote. his audience lost their zeal and what else would the author say? the entire book of hebrews is an apologetic.

    1. Hello, thank you for taking the time to read and comment upon my post.
      When someone works for a large corporation the company’s policies etc are relayed to the employer not by the bigwigs but by their representatives. Likewise the quoted text was not directly spoken by God but as a Christian I believe the Bible is His inspired Word and He has used individuals to pass on his commands etc. I therefore accept it as His Word, particularly as my Bible tells me that ALL scripture has been inspired by God.
      Have a great weekend.

      1. everyone feels that way about their holy texts. thing is about truth though, it simply is true and appealing to source or to authority are classic fallacies, indictments on clear thinking rather than what makes something true at all.

        all that can matter about god-talk, oral written, is that what is being said is worth saying, worth hearing … and in that, good is no judge, we are.

        you have a great weekend too.

      2. Dear Steven it is not absolutely clear to me what you are saying but I sense we disagree with one another, so let’s leave it there.
        I do appreciate you beginning this discussion in a lively manner. 😃
