Hello and thanks for joining in on to today’s daily devotion. Today is Wednesday January 6th. The 4th day of the Hebraic week.
Our verse today is Mark 9:24
Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”
What an honest statement! Ever been there before? Of course you have. We all have. You may even be there right now. Facing something that is bigger than us can just be overwhelming. We want to believe, but everything around us makes it seem so difficult to do.
Yet, with everything around us shouting doubt, there’s that steady small voice encouraging us to hold on. To not give up. To cling on to the very last thread of hope we’ve been given. And so we continue on the best we know how.
There are times in this life that can truly wear us out. They can seem to drag us to the bottom of the Barrel even. However, have you ever thought that could very well be the plan? Sometimes He wants to empty us of us before we can move forward in Him.
So while we hold on to Him saying “I believe; help me overcome my unbelief!,” don’t let your focus be on getting your prayer answered. Let it be on becoming more like Him. Emptying us of ourselves. Becoming more like Him. When we can achieve this, we can truly overcome our unbelief.
Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until tomorrow, shalom!
