Help Me Overcome My Unbelief
By Rick Warren
“‘If you can do anything, do it. Have a heart and help us!’ Jesus said, ‘If? There are no “ifs” among believers. Anything can happen.’ No sooner were the words out of his mouth than the father cried, ‘Then I believe. Help me with my doubts!’” (Mark 9:22-24 The Message)
Is it possible to be filled with faith and doubt at the same time? Yes! You can have faith that God wants you to do something and still be scared to death.
But that’s OK, because God lets you begin with the faith you already have. It may be just a little, but that’s all you need to start.
We have all thought at some point, “Lord, I have some faith. But I also have some doubts.” That’s where God will meet us and give us what we need to keep moving and accomplish the work he has given us to do.
What are some areas of your life where you trust that God is at work? What are some areas of your life where you’re struggling with doubt, wondering if God is really helping you?
Your knees may be shaking, but you just have to put one foot in front of the other. Keep moving forward!
Talk It Over
What do you believe God wants you to accomplish? What are the tasks he has given you for today?
What scares you about your calling? What do you doubt?
How can Scripture encourage you as you move forward in faith, despite your fears?
