    I Doubt It!

    Posted on Jun 9, 2022 12:00:00 AM


    Mark 9:23-24, "Jesus said to him, '"If you can?”Everything is possible to the one who believes.' Immediately the father of the boy cried out, 'I do believe! Help me in my unbelief.'" 


    We all have doubts. As much as we want life to be full of certainty, there are always unknowns. In this story of Scripture, a man was asking Jesus to heal his son. In his request, he asked, "If you can…," and Jesus called him out. He could hear his doubt. But Jesus didn't walk away from him, nor shame him. Instead, He encouraged him to believe that everything is possible, even when it seems impossible. And the man's response? He asked Jesus to fill in the gaps of his faith. Even though he still had doubts, he asked Jesus to help him. That became his step of faith, and Jesus did the impossible.  


    Where do you need God to work in your life? Are you facing a seemingly insurmountable obstacle? And are there doubts that plague you? Talk to God about it. He can handle them. When you doubt your doubts, God will feed your faith.  


    Feed your faith by spending time with people whose faith has been tested.
