Thought from the Word

A THOUGHT FROM THE WORD

Mark 9:24

“ Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.”


Many times the past 62 years I have had to pray this prayer “Lord help my unbelief.”When a situation would arise where only God could work it out I would get on the spiritual rollercoaster.On day I would be up the next day I would be down in my trust in the Lord.Just recently I went through a similarly experience.Martin Luther tells an experience he had:"At one time," he says, "I was sorely vexed and tried by my own sinfulness, by the wickedness of the world, and by the way things were going at our church.”One morning I saw my wife dressed in mourning. Surprised, I asked her “Who had died”“Don’t you not know?” she replied; “God is dead.” Martin Luther said “How can you talk such nonsense?How can God die?” Then she replied: “Is that really true? Of course, though you do not doubt that—yet you are so helpless and discouraged.So God must have died." How many times in our trials in life’s journey do we act as if God died?“Oh, Lord help thou my unbelief.”

God is very patient with us in our weaknesses and faults
