For example, Mark records that a father brought his son to be healed from an evil spirit and the disciples couldn’t help him. Later, when Jesus arrived, the father asked Him to heal his son and they had this exchange:
Jesus: “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”
Child’s Father: “Lord I believe; help my unbelief!” (Mark 9:23-24 NKJV)
Mark also describes how desperate and tearful the man was. He was so concerned for his child, but admitted his shortcoming and asked for the Lord’s help. In a moment, his son was healed and his faith grew exponentially; not because of self-generated commitment, but because of his humble request.
Honesty with the Lord is always the best place to start. He knows every secret thought of our heart already and we’re in need of confessing them. Is there an area of life where your faith is wavering? If so, confess it. Admit the obvious, and speak the words of “Lord please help my unbelief…”
