Matt 17:20 Because of your unbelief;
The disciples were around Jesus 24/7 – learning from Him and watching Him. When it came time to minister to a father and his son, they could not do it.
What held them back is the same that will hold you back – unbelief!
Jesus said, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” Mark 9:23
That’s not just an obscure promise to someone long ago but a promise for you today!
Faith and belief must walk arm in arm in the life of a believer.
You believe in certain things around you because you see it – the TV exists, France is a real place, and rain is wet. These things are believed in because they are seen and experienced.
But much of God is unseen and believed by faith. Without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Heb 11:6
The words Jesus spoke to Jairus are the same words He would speak to you, “Only believe.” Mark 5:36
Abba, in Jesus’ name, help my unbelief and increase my faith today! YES&AMEN
