Unbelieving Believers

unbe

The words that the father with a son that was demon possessed exclaimed with tears in his eyes about his situation saying “i believe lord help my un-belief” is the prayer most of us need to pray.

We may be acquainted with Christ and his service, we may know that he is lord, we know he can heal, we know he can solve problems and work wonders, we often even have prayed and fasted over our issues. We have wept in the night and presented them to those that claim yo be his and presented them even to him, yet we still harbour a feeling that nothing will happen.

Many are afflicting themselves in fasting and prayer overnights. Many in pulpits and many in prayer bands. There are too many believers with unbelief.

Uprightness is not a sign of faith, for even the priest Zechariah one who the bible says was upright in the sight of God, struggled with unbelief.

Observing commandments is equally not guarantee that you have faith for luke 1 vs 6 says he observed all the lord’s commandments and regulations blamelessly.

Serving in a church position equally is not proof that you have faith, for this man was a priest.

Participation in church activities is no proof of faith, neither for the man who is a priest offering incense in the temple.

Praying about your situation is not proof either that you have faith for the priest was praying about his situation testified to by the angel who in verse 13 told him that his prayers have been answered.

In verse 20 the angel tells him he will be dumb because of his un-belief. Praying yet not believing.

Faith is a very important part of the Christians belief system

You see friend many are rubbing shoulders in the religious mob of your church with Jesus every Sunday or Sabbath. Many are singing his praise in choirs and concerts.

Many are afflicting themselves in fasting and prayer overnights. Many in pulpits and many in prayer bands. There are too many believers with unbelief.

Its not prayers with many words and shouting but Prayers seasoned with faith, its not deafening songs and praise but A humble dependence on him that is able.

You don’t have to have a position for the woman with an issue of blood had no position, her name not even known yet her touch of faith made her to hear the words your faith has made you whole.

Total dependence and trust in his ways, his wisdom, his commands, his love, his forgiveness, his requirements, his timing, his power and might moves him into action. Believe dear friend for even salvation is only promised to those who believe in him.
