If Christianity explains the spiritual realm (an all-powerful, all-knowing, all-present God who is actively involved in loving and disciplining His creation as a loving Father), then God is *actually* REAL. I believe help thou my unbelief I take the finite risk of trusting like a child I believe help thou my unbelief I walk into the unknown, trusting all the while “I Believe Help Thou My Unbelief” is based on the Bible verse in the book of Mark. And as for what fell among the thorns, they are those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by the cares and riches and pleasures of life, and their fruit does not mature.  As for that in the good soil, they are those who, hearing the word, hold it fast in an honest and good heart, and bear fruit with patience.  (Luke 8:11-15). It’s about the precious Name above all Names – Jesus Christ. nothing?  I dunno… I just have a regular life…”, “I checked off reading all the books of the Bible…”, “Well, the NEW testament was fairly interesting… To be honest, the OLD testament was a chore…”. (Note, my sister had also seen “spirits” when she was a child, and my daughter has also seen a demonic manifestation). When you believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you accept that what the Bible teaches about Jesus is true and that His death paid the price for your wrongdoings. My head and my heart have found peace and salvation.  Don’t get me wrong – I genuinely believed I was seeking God when I would commit to reading the Bible or praying with others. Such as, “Smile and you will start to feel happy?” Well… that may work with confidence and good feelings, but I can tell you it doesn’t work with salvation. In the deserts of Egypt in the years after Jesus’s resurrection, a community of monks formed. Jesus is a gentleman; He didn’t force his way inside my life. Very common in “religious” circles. …but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.  Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God.   (Romans 5:8-9). The ones along the path are those who have heard; then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, so that they may not believe and be saved.  And the ones on the rock are those who, when they hear the word, receive it with joy. Help my unbelief God Jesus I believe Submit Corrections.  I am consciously CHOOSING to put my faith in God, trusting that He will take it from there. I wrested so long and so deeply with my heart – my heart would wane from enthusiastic, to wandering, to doubting.  At times, I was swept up by emotional experiences.  I would fall away when the “good feelings” were replaced by hard times of testing my faith.  My faith would “ebb” and “flow”, but I resisted committing wholeheartedly.  I couldn’t maintain passion as my foundation was on the “sandy land”.  I sprung up quickly when hearing a good sermon or testimony, or singing a touching song.  But I was easily swept away.  The cares of this world choked out cares for eternity.  I was actively involved in the church from time to time, but my root motive (if I was honest) was friendship/belonging and trying to prove my salvation to myself. Pray With Me:  Jesus, there are many voices competing for my attention.  Conflicting thoughts run through my head.  I confess that I’ve entertained the idea of following some of those voices and thoughts that lead to doubt, away from You.  Today, I choose to take those voices and thoughts captive.  I choose to trust You and Your Word.  Develop my spiritual ear to hear Your still small voice.  We don’t have to SAY or DO anything.  We are utterly, and completely, helpless to do anything about our own condition.  I believe the enemy led me there in my weakness, attempting to lead me down the same path he had led this other man. disbelief, or unfaithfulness.  It was this I struggled with for decades. I had fully submitted myself to the realization that if Jesus was my Savior, He was also my “master”. “You deaf and mute spirit,” He said, “I command you to come out and never enter him again.”… So, despite this being a very negative and terrifying experience, it definitely convinced me that there is a spiritual (usually unseen) realm.  Matthew 18:3.  If I ignored Him, He went away.  Only then will your works be “a fragrant offering, a sacrifice acceptable and pleasing to God” (Phil 4:18). Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Philippians 1:29 For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake; Immediately, soon, at once. Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters. There is no other way. I decided I better start reading the Bible again. help my unbelief!” 25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, He rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, “Deaf and dumb spirit, I command you, come out of him and enter him no more!” I hope this helps you on your own personal journey.  If this has touched you, I’d love to hear from you.  If you still need help, I’d love to hear from you.  Please message me, or comment below!  The closer I get to God, the more I am aware of how far I am from God’s holiness.  Why, when others seem to “get it” so easily? To cry aloud, shriek. ALL my heart. Help my unbelief.” What to remember about doubt But I KNEW I didn’t get something still! As a young child, as far as I knew, I legitimately loved Jesus.  I sang to Him, prayed to Him, trusted in Him to help me.  As I entered the pre-teen years, I began to be drawn away.  In my teen years, I never “stopped believing”, but I certainly was looking to the world to fill the empty place in my heart.  I may not have battled addiction, abuse, or false religion, but I did wage a long and bloody battle with my own heart.  My friends, I do not know when the law “sprang to life” in me.  I do not know when exactly I was saved.  But in the end, it doesn’t matter.  What matters is that I am saved NOW.  I am trusting in Jesus alone for salvation TODAY.  And that is what matters for you, too! ), Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. As the man says to Jesus in the gospels, “Lord, I believe, but help my unbelief.” And Luke’s gospel frankly describes the reaction of the disciples—who were hiding in fear—when the women tell them of Jesus’ resurrection: “These words seemed to them an idle tale, and they did not believe them.” The Lion And The Lamb. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.  (Galatians 2:20), So this is the part where you may be stuck. He paid our ENTIRE debt. Writer(s): Jason Ingram, Michael Weaver. Test yourselves. Jesus didn’t just pay PART of our debt, or even MOST of it, leaving some on the tab for us. 2. When we focus on our outward behaviors, we miss working on aligning our hearts with God. That’s the purpose for every single human. The purpose of your life is to live with JESUS as your compass. The full context of the man’s prayer, “I believe; help my unbelief!” helps make his meaning clearer.

He’s the Good Shepherd. For if the people did not escape when they refused Him who warned them on earth, how much less will we escape if we reject Him who warns us from heaven?  (Hebrews 12:25-26).  My heart is a fickle thing, full of deceit and selfish motives. You realize you are lost, and you want to be found. I write my story because I can’t be the only one who has gone through the agony of wrestling with faith.  Struggling with doubt – not doubt of the truth, but doubt of my own salvation.  Maybe there is one person here who needs to hear this message!  I want to share with you today what Jesus has done, and is doing in my life.  While I can talk endlessly about Jesus today (as you will see!  No other religious book has the track record of archeological and historical proof that the Bible does.  Why did I doubt?  Through this, God showed me that I was holding out on Him.  I was horribly convicted that I was one of the “lukewarm”. Apparently a primary word; a 'father'. AZLyrics. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. Change ). It’s more like an inaction – a surrender. Pray With Me:  Jesus, please show me the true condition of my heart.  Am I seeking heaven?  Blessings?  Emotional encounters?  Experiences?  Belonging?  Or am I truly seeking You and You alone?  If I have no special feelings or encounters, will I hold firm to faith in You?  Reveal to me the beliefs of my own heart. If you believe, but are struggling with unbelief, this is for you.  If you believe, but have doubts of your salvation, this is for you.  If you believe, but are nervous you might be considered lukewarm, this is for you.  If you believe, but are terrified that if you died tonight Jesus might say “Get away from me, I never knew you!”, then this is for you. Or another way of saying whatever is true right pure and lovely, keep your thoughts on these things. I was trying to good-works my way to proving my salvation to myself.  Are you trying to get close to Jesus by being good, or are you approaching Him through the cross of mercy? I had worked through a belief in heaven and the supernatural.  Choose today whom you will serve – yourself, or Jesus. At one point, we choose faith in something.   I couldn’t maintain a commitment – I would try for awhile (sprout), then give up and focus on LIFE (entertainment, work, buying things, hobbies) (wither/choke out).  Even though I had grown up “Christian”, I struggled with not having boldness to share my faith – or even to admit I had faith when people were openly mocking Christianity. J ust…. This post is very long, but then – you’ve been struggling for a long time, right?  I can’t lead your heart in two or three paragraphs.   So get comfy, get some tissues, and get ready.  I know this is all still rough and skips around in places, but it probably never will be “perfect”.  It’s a work in progress.  Just like I am.  Just like you are.  But that’s exactly it.  I never was, and never will be deserving.  And I can’t do a single thing about it.  It is only when I truly stopped myself, died to self, crucified myself, that I found out how to live. You cannot serve God and wealth.” Matthew 6:24).  Do I really believe there is a spiritual realm?  Not just, yeah, of course.  But really?  Deep down? To be honest, I didn’t have a lasting passion for Christ. album: "Beautiful Offerings" (2015) Beautiful Offering. – Romans 10:13 ESV.  Our works can’t add to or maintain salvation – I might do enough good things to build a great toboganning hill… Mother Teresa built a Mount Everest of good works… And neither of us could reach the Moon.  I reflected on the Sabbath, and how Jesus came to fulfill the Law so that we could rest from striving for salvation.  Salvation isn’t about heaven.  It’s not about blessings or comfort or even about assurance.  Salvation is simply about Jesus.  Being reconciled to Him.  Resting in what He has done.  Becoming immersed in Him, filled by Him, abiding in Him. 2 Kings 20:5 Turn again, and tell Hezekiah the captain of my people, Thus saith the LORD, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will heal thee: on the third day thou shalt go up unto the house of the LORD. Jesus ordered the unclean spirit to leave the boy and never return, and just like that, he was healed. You want to know why I didn’t give up this time? For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.” (Romans 10:9-10).  As much as I was tempted to spin the hamster wheel one more (or many more) time, I honestly didn’t know if I had that “luxury” anymore. My sweet friends, subsequent to salvation we absolutely do want to obey Jesus. I thought, okay, I’m going to convince my heart to believe like my head. It’s easy in concept but we can make it very complicated.  This is where something needs to click. If you have walked away from your faith or you are feeling as though you cannot pray then “I Believe, Help Thou My Unbelief” is great starting place. Jesus is the Door.  Times when I “felt” close to God, and (many more) times when He either “felt” far away or I didn’t really notice what our relationship felt like because I put Him on the sideline. I was personally confident in the “facts” of Christianity, in my head. Now, I say I *chose* God. In the past I was required to write a “testimony” to share with others.  This was always a great struggle for me.  Not only did I (and do I) hate public speaking, it was always a chore to think of what to write.  As far as I was concerned, Jesus hadn’t done anything spectacular in my life.  I didn’t come from a background of abuse, addiction, new age, witchcraft, or anything that made “an exciting testimony”.  So I would look up examples.  I would end up with this: “I grew up in a Christian home.  I asked Jesus into my heart at the age of 4, at a summer backyard club.  I was terrified by the booklet which showed unbelievers clawing and screaming in the fires of hell!  I want to go to heaven!  I have never NOT believed in God and the Bible, so I don’t even know what that would be like.  My family goes to church.  We are pretty typical “North American Christians”.  So… I guess that’s that.”, “Uhhhh…. With God, it’s all about the heart. “the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ, our Lord” (Romans 3:23).  When we are born, we are babies. I Have Loved You With an Everlasting Love, Follow Following Jesus Daily on WordPress.com, God’s Tender Mercy in the Coronavirus Crisis, Blessed Assurance – A Guide to Rapture Readiness, M1D8 – Commitment to Christianity (the Religion). If you asked God to forgive you, and have chosen to follow Him, you are now part of His family.   Your adoption has been finalized and you are “born again”!  God has given you a clean slate. Sanctification is all about Jesus and what He is doing in us.  Always, Jesus is the focus, not us.  It’s not about our feelings.  Salvation is a deep seated trust, knowing in your heart that you are a child of God because you believe God’s Word is true.  How undeserving I am of His love and sacrifice.  Why did I not have assurance of salvation? I know in my head that the Bible is true.  I believe in God, Jesus, the salvation plan, all of it.  I was raised in a Christian family, went to church, backyard clubs, Christian camps, missions trips.  But I am still miserable.  When I look at the fruit of the Spirit, I don’t have ANY – love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, self control.  The more I try to force this fruit to grow in my life, the harder I fall.  Intellectually I know I’m a Christian, but in my heart, I sure don’t feel like it.”. Jesus died on the cross to take our punishment for us. We are to be transformed into His likeness as we abide in Him, and walk by the Spirit.  Was Jesus Christ not in my heart? It was as clear as day, like a light turning on.  It was very much ongoing – day by day, week by week, month by month, year by year.  From the time I started praying for spiritual renewal until I was finally granted assurance of salvation, was approximately five years.  I hope it doesn’t take that long for you!  I will share how it happened for me.  If the Christian God is real, then because the Bible is His Word, it must also be true. I did not used to “pass the test”.  When I truly examined myself I knew deep down that something was wrong.  I didn’t want to die because I wasn’t sure where I would go.  What about you?  In your heart of hearts do you have peace or dread?   Test yourself before God, right now!  Approach Him in prayer with a seeking heart. Heaven Is Here.  Was it?  It’s now time to learn more about Him, grow your relationship with Him, and choose to obey Him.   It’s like any relationship – it takes time and dedication! The Bible tells us what saved people look like, so I’m going to do all the things that saved people do. Either I am following Self or I am following Jesus. Even one wrong thing carries the death penalty in God’s eyes.  You are lost, dead in your sins – “For the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). While the gospel is unchanging, God uses our individual testimonies to touch people in different ways.  We are the hands, feet, and yes – mouthpieces, of God!  Coming to saving faith is a process… many people plant seeds of the gospel in our lives, till the soil, water the sprouts, while the Holy Spirit does the beautiful work of regeneration in our hearts.  If you are reading this, then you are not hard packed soil.  The soil of your heart is tilled!  Seeds have been planted!  Sprouts have formed!  And yet… have those sprouts come to full maturity?  Dear friend, please keep reading and open your heart to hearing the Holy Spirit in your heart today! Jesus washed away my sin, this I do believe. You guys, Our eyes will all get pulled off of Jesus for one reason or another.  1 Corinthians 2:14, In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. Stopping… And letting go.\. A letting go. I, the first-person pronoun.  The part that would send me to heaven when I died, avoiding the whole lake of fire thing. by mc Jesus, where are You now?  Salvation is described as being “born-again”. Of control, of dreams, of self – just a complete and total letting go and falling straight into the arms of God.  With Jesus it’s all or nothing – if I’m not FOR Him, I’m AGAINST Him. We don’t have to, and can’t, maintain it ourselves. To walk with Him, to talk with Him, and to base your worldview upon His Word.  We throw ourselves at God’s feet, acknowledging we are wretched, poor, blind and naked. Big Daddy Weave Lyrics. And here you are.  God made you.  He called you into being.  You are “fearfully and wonderfully made”.  He has a plan for your life and He WANTS you.  He wants to be in relationship with you.  Not in a begging pleading kind of way, but He made you to be in His family and basically you won’t feel whole until you are. I plead with You on behalf of everyone who reads this message.  You know which of Your sheep have strayed.  You love them and have not abandoned them!  You will leave the ninety-nine to find them.  Draw them irresistibly by Your Spirit.  Speak to them, and lead their hearts home!  You have begun a good work in them – the good seed has been planted!  I have confidence that You will be faithful to carry it to completion until the day of Christ Jesus (Philippians 1:6).  And that day is soon!  You are near, even at the very gates!  Plant an urgency in the hearts of Your lambs, may they turn from sin and self and towards You today.Â, “…but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect, having a good conscience, so that, when you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame.  (1 Peter 3:15-16), Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman’s testimony, “He told me everything I ever did.”  (John 4:39). ).  The sprouts end up either choked by weeds (the cares and concerns of this life) or can’t be anchored by roots and fall away.  Look guys, the weedy and rocky soils are “doing Christianity – the religion – in their own strength”.  We absolutely can have warm and fuzzy feelings, emotional experiences, and intellectual assent without being saved.  These experiences also occur in cults and false religions!  We absolutely can do good works, have moral behaviors, and follow religious disciplines on our own… for a while.  Again, see other religions and cults as an example – they have many devout followers! Our heart clicks into alignment with God.  Was I seeking *God*, or warm and fuzzy feelings?  Did I do good things because I wanted to show Jesus my love for Him, or because I wanted to prove to myself I was saved – because “good things” are what “saved people do”? These all led to “emotional” experiences, of feeling my heart and head lined up temporarily.  But I had to know it in my heart.  Our human tendency is to want to add on to Jesus’ finished work in some way, even if it’s trying to force timing or assurance. Learn to help others be honest with their doubts by receiving your friends’ doubts with Christ-like tenderness. We love to obey His rules because they are good and right and holy and lead us into good and moral living, they pay off even for unbelievers. HE alone is True North.  My inner dialogue went like this: Faith without works is dead, but if we work for our faith Jesus will say to us “I never knew you”. The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned. Stopping religion and works and trying and proving. Finally, in my own life, I was ready for full surrender.  I accepted that God’s plan and purpose for me was the same as it is for you – to love Him and serve Him wholeheartedly.  He has prepared you, your personality, your talents, your gifts, for a specific time and place just as He has prepared me. I am also helped by the following two songs, both of which speak of the precariousness of faith and the coldness of the human heart: 1.  Isaiah 64:6, Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit.  John 15:2. Come into His flock.  Not just a bit of my heart. There are two ditches, and the narrow road in between is the Truth.  Both extremes of following the words of Jesus through Paul ONLY versus not following the words of Jesus through Paul AT ALL are in greivous error.  I am praying for both sides to be convicted by the Spirit of Truth! You have broken God’s rules and are considered a sinner – “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). I would pray the “Sinner’s Prayer”, and “sign the card” many times over the next few decades, following the “4-step plan” and the “Romans Road”. Do you believe in the facts of the Bible, God, Jesus, salvation, and yet struggle with having these facts fully penetrate and possess your heart?  Do you struggle with the concept of God being a loving, merciful Father?  Matthew 12:30, Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.  (Revelation 3:20). 2 Samuel 16:12 It may be that the LORD will look on mine affliction, and that the LORD will requite me good for his cursing this day. Speak into my heart and transform me from the inside out! This is a task that ONLY YOU can do. to call aloud. Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord’, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’  Matthew 7:21-23.  I began by reading the gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John).  At this point, I hadn’t really read my Bible (or attended church) in years.  But I have had to wrestle through these issues of faith to the point of exhaustion. “For by grace you are saved through faith, and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God; it is not from works, so that no one can boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9). Lord I Believe, Help My Unbelief by Mike Crawford and His Secret Siblings, released 15 August 2009 Lord I Believe, Help My Unbelief! When you say Jesus is Lord, this means you believe He is God and as your Creator, He deserves to be Lord of your life. So how does your belief in Jesus affect your life? It’s either the narrow one that leads to life, or the broad one that leads to destruction. Jesus’ blood pays the full tab of our salvation past, present, and future. They are your beeping home base, so you know where you belong, who you are, what to do.  As you grow up and become a teen, your compass is swirling in a tornado.  You don’t know which way is up!  Your compass wildly tries to find TRUE NORTH but can’t. ( Log Out /  Saving faith results in works, so if I don’t do the works, I’m not saved. From apistos; faithlessness, i.e.  Even if I think I’m following the Holy Spirit’s leading I still keep getting it ALL WRONG.  I was sitting in the bathroom, telling God that assurance of salvation was just too hard for me.  I didn’t get it… I never would… and I was yelling in my head – “I have tried EVERYTHING…and NOTHING has worked!!!”. Guys.  We are in the sunset of this age.  Did I pray because I knew I should and it was right, or because I genuinely believed that God hears and answers prayer? My sweet friend, have you internalized that God’s love for you, unlike human love, is truly unconditional – independent of what you do or do not do?  If not, please consider reading I Have Loved You With an Everlasting Love.  We are only able to love God because He loved us first (1 John 4:19). “ acting as if ” know my heart, and future Aorist Participle -...
