“I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!” Mark 9:24
WOW do I have a good one for you this week! The topic is from UNBELIEF to FAITH and I tell you ALL about it in my new video “Atheist No More!” (at pastoraj.com) in which I interview attorney and former Atheist turned believer Ohav Cohen LIVE from Tel Aviv, Israel! You won’t want to miss this! His prayer reminds me of the man who came to Jesus one day with a problem. His son was possessed by an impure spirit. The spirit would throw the young man into seizures in which he violently convulsed and foamed at the mouth like a rabid animal! Jesus’ response: “Everything is possible for the one who believes” (v23). The man’s problem: He struggled with UNBELIEF. I mean, he wasn’t an unbeliever. He just struggled to COMPLETELY take in all the promises of God. So yes friends, even BELIEVERS can struggle with doubts at times. Yet this man made the most honest, transparent and faithful plea to the Savior. He said, “I do believe; Help me overcome my unbelief!” (v24). Immediately, the compassion of Jesus took over and he removed the spirit from the young man. Problem solved. Similarly, my friend Ohav asked God for some evidence. What was God’s response? He came through BIG TIME by leading him to many of the archaeological sites I spent the last month seeing for myself in Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Israel. These FACTS, then, had a MAJOR impact on Ohav, swinging him from futility to faith and God WILL do the same for you! All you have to do is ask and seek his face. Jesus WILL make himself real to you right now!
Have you ever or are you currently struggling with unbelief? How can you ask God to help?
Is anyone in your immediate circle an unbeliever? How can you use some of the evidence for the Bible to win them to faith?
