No Christian has impeccable trust in God, and there are bunches of enemies of God in this world trying to undermine our mustard-seed confidence in Him. Be that as it may, we don’t have to stress. God has spared us by his beauty in Jesus Christ – we all simply continue saying to God,”I accept – help my unbelief.”
Thankfully, God is more noteworthy than our questions. The way that we turn to him at all is just conceivable by his benevolent activity in our hearts and minds. Ephesians 2:1-10 gives an incredible portrayal of God’s work for us, and verse 8 shows us that even confidence is a blessing from God.
In the end, we are not saved by the strength of our belief, but by the cross of Christ. We’re not saved by our own certainty about Jesus, but by God’s act of mercy in history to save us and show Himself to us.
There’s a story of Jesus from the gospel of Mark that is really relevant here. A boy has an evil spirit that has made him mute for years and throws him into fits. The boy’s desperate father brings him to Jesus, having seen the disciples try and fail to heal him. From Mark 9:21:
What’s more, Jesus asked his father,”How long has this been occurring to him?”
What’s more, he said,”From adolescence. What’s more, it has frequently thrown him into flame and into water, to pulverize him. Be that as it may, in the event that you can do anything, have sympathy on us and help us.” And Jesus said to him,”‘If you can’! Everything is workable for one who believes.”
Quickly the father of the kid shouted out and said,”I trust; help my unbelief!” And when Jesus saw that a group came running together, he reproached the unclean soul, saying to it,”You quiet and hard of hearing soul, I charge you, leave him and never enter him again.” And in the wake of shouting out and shaking him horrendously, it turned out, and the kid was similar to a body, so that the greater part of them said,”He is dead.” But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him up, and he emerged. (Mark 9:21-27)
Isn’t that unbelievable! The man says,”If you can do anything, have compassion”” I cherish Jesus’ response,”If you can?! What do you mean, If you can? Trust me!”
What’s more, the man needs to accept. He says that incredible line:”I accept – help my unbelief.” He’s platitude that he trusts Jesus somehow, yet that he’s insecure about it and he needs assistance to trust all the more firmly. What’s more, Jesus mends his kid, as though bringing him resurrected.
I don’t think there’s any greater cry of dependence (that is, faith or trust), than what the man says,”I believe – help my unbelief.” He has just enough to ask Jesus to fill him with faith. For the person who wants to repent and become a follower of Jesus, that little stepping off, as unsure as it may be, is the start of great growth into trust of God.
Just before the bit from Ephesians above about the work of God, the apostle Paul talks about praying a prayer for the Ephesians. His prayer is that God will give them greater insight and wisdom to know God better – to trust him better (Ephesians 1:16-21)).
God will work in Christians to convince them of the truth of the gospel.
Remember: God has an impeccable plan to not only direct you towards your daily provision, but moving you towards your divine purpose and supernatural blessings that will go beyond your lifetime.
