WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS, GOD DOESN’T!

Do not rely on your own understanding of a situation. “For we walk by faith not sight” — 2 Corinthians 5:7

Have you ever caught yourself thinking, “God, It’s not suppose to be this way…”

Sometimes things happen in life that simply catch us off guard. We feel disappointed, disillusioned and we quietly start to question and wonder about God’s goodness.

In Mark:9 it tells a story of a father who came to Jesus with his son asking Jesus to heal him. Even in his asking, he still questioned — And then Jesus said to him, ” If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears; “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief.”

And If you feel like this is you, and you’re in the same boat, still questioning God. Take heart, you don’t have to fight through your disappointments, tears and unanswered questions alone. God can do ANYTHING! — God can do EVERYTHING!

So how can this be the end? It’s not. There is so much more for you. Jesus is our great REDEEMER, RESTORER and ALMIGHTY SAVIOR! — He is that for YOU — HERE, NOW!

And some of his best work — HE does in the unseen. For when you least expect it, the Lord steps in and brings about your miracle. God truly is the redeemer of all! Glory to God! Amen!

Blessings and Love…๐Ÿ˜Š

  1. I always liked this story. Many think we donโ€™t dare express doubt, but God can handle our doubt. He knows when we doubt anyway whether we admit it or not. How much better to be like this father and ask for help with our disbelief.

  2. Thank you. I’m constantly “floundering” because of a [long-term] personal situation and find myself asking “why?” / “when?”. Reading this post, however, gives me strength and renews my faith. I have to believe. I will believe. Never stop posting!

  3. Amen! God is a God of miracles and there’s nothing that He cannot do if we only believe. I have had to pray that prayer before, Lord help my unbelief. I have also prayed it for others. It is only by His grace that we can believe in the first place and faith is a powerful thing provided we invest it in its proper place. Thank you for this awesome reminder of God and His miraculous nature!

  4. Good thoughts. Some spiritual writers advise us to consider the human pattern of lying down to sleep and rising to a new day in light of God’s reliability. In sleep we trust God to run the world and take care of us while we rest. Only, we must remember that God also runs the world and takes care of us in our waking hours as well. Keep up the good work! Blessings!

  5. Amen and Amen!! I find I can relate to the father in this account. Like him it’s not that I don’t believe, rather it is because I am so close to a situation I cannot see God moving. Another pitfall is allowing myself to get worn down by the events of a given day because I have not stayed aware of the presence of our Awesome God. Either way, I find I do need the Lord’s blessing to help me overcome me!
    At the conclusion of your post, you rightly remind us all of the limitless power, love, compassion, etc. of the Almighty. I will add part of Jeremiah’s prayer to this: “Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.”

  6. Amen God does not fail us. Great reminder. Thanks for the encouragement

    Please understand that there is a way out of the cycle. It is different for each person, but it is also possible for each person, by the grace of God, no matter how uniquely and irreversibly crippling that personโ€™s shame might feel.

    When we let shame control our actions, we cannot know God, because we cannot live our lives for him. Christian Atheists may live as if God doesnโ€™t exist because, in their cycle of shame, it doesnโ€™t seem as if He does.

    Rather,ย we are who God says we are: His children.ย We are forgivable. We are changeable. We are capable. We are moldable. And we are bound by the limitless love of God.

    The first step to overcoming shame is to accept that which cannot be changed.

    Once we accept the unchangeable past, we must embrace that God can change our future.

    While we may always remember what happened, we need to believe that we are not what happened. We are who God says we are โ€” new creations

    And the one sitting on the throne said, โ€œLook, I am making everything’s new!โ€ And then he said to me, โ€œWrite this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true.โ€
    Revelation 21:5 NLT

    Glory to God. Blessings to you. ๐Ÿ˜‡โค

  7. very interesting and inspiring post. we need Godโ€™s help to strengthen our unbelief; but Irrespective of this, we need to fulfill Godโ€™s minimum requirement of having belief that God exists and rewards those who believe in his awesome and indescribable power, and diligently seek him, even when the world is turning up side down.

    somewhere in Hebrews says without faith its impossible to please God; so good enough, we donโ€™t need all the faith in the world, but at least we need some faith thatโ€™s minimum enough to believe that the supreme God existsโ€”thatโ€™s enough.

  8. I love that line โ€œLord, I believe, help my unbeliefโ€, because if you think about it, I think we sometimes question whether or not we trust God, or weโ€™re just saying that, even if we want desperately to believe. I think that, that saying is something we all end up saying at some point in our life, whether a new believer, or someone who has believed for years. I loved this message, it was well written! ๐Ÿ™‚
