“What do you mean, ‘If I can’?” Jesus asked. “Anything is possible if a person believes.”The father instantly cried out, “I do believe, but help me overcome my unbelief!”
Insight - Perhaps one of the most honest and human responses found in the Bible, is this father who is desperate for a miracle. How many times have you struggled with unbelief? We know that Jesus had the power to do anything he wants, but we stop short of believing he would do it for us! Take comfort in knowing that you are not alone in feeling this way, furthermore in our reading today we see that Jesus can handle our lack of faith, in fact all he needs is a very small measure of faith to do the impossible!
Prayer - Jesus, I really do believe that you can do the impossible! But I also struggle with unbelief at the same time, help me to overcome. I thank you that even mustard seed size faith can move mountains, I look to you today to do what only you can do. Amen
