DO YOU BELIEVE?
This is one of the most incredible questions ever asked by Jesus. It’s a question of trust, of reliance, of faith. Do you believe? What is it that Jesus is asking us to believe? The answer is found in the very one who poses the question. Jesus is asking us whether or not we believe in Him. Do we believe He is who He says He is? Do we truly believe that He can do what He says He can and will do? Jesus says that “All things are possible to him who believes.” (Mark 9:23 NKJV)
This year I believe God is asking us as people of faith, ‘Do you believe?’ Our response should be “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief.” You see faith is a gift that only God can give. While we may believe Him to a point, we all need help to believe Him all the way. Let’s join together in faith and trust God to do what He has already promised He will do!
“Heavenly Father, I resolve in this new year of 2009 to believe you with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength. I ask you to help me in the areas that I am weak to learn how to trust you more. I want to be a person of faith and not live in an atmosphere of doubt. In Jesus’, All-Powerful name, Amen!”
