Hello World….When Faith Fails

A close friend of mine called and told me that she is having a hard time believing that God is hearing her prayers because a thing that is happening to her is continuing to happen.  She said she has prayed and prayed and nothing seems to change. A pastor friend told her that she isn’t receiving because her faith isn’t strong enough to receive what she is asking for.    My answer to that comment is Mark 9:14  Lord, I believe, help Thou mine unbelief.

I don’t believe that you don’t receive because your faith is not strong enough, for the word says,  if you have the faith of a grain of mustard seed you can remove mountains.  A grain of mustard seed is almost the size of this dot    (   .   )    and if that size can remove mountains, then  the size of your faith has nothing to do with receiving answers to prayers.

This verse in Mark has other content that goes along with it.  In context it states:   ‘If thou canst!  All things are possible to him that believes.’   Straightway the father of the child cried out, and said, “I believe, help thou my unbelief!”     This passage does not speak directly of faith.  Faith is  a system of religious beliefs and can cover a multitude of beliefs and or unbeliefs.   Faith can cover any set of principles or beliefs. So, let us look at the many sects of faith.  How many do you think there are?  I must be honest and tell you there are so many that I can not list them all.      I will list  7 of 21 that I have studied in the past. . . . and they are not in any certain order…Mormonism, Christianity, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Islam, Buddhism, Judaism, Seventh Day Adventism.  .  . . . ……  just to list 7 that I know a lot about what they have faith in. 

If you have faith in a system of  rules and regulations, your faith is in rules and regulations or a system.  If you have faith that does not get answers, then you have faith in a system.   BUT sometimes I get answers.  How do the answers come?   Do you tell someone the problem and they answer the prayer by providing what you need?  That is a system that works by manipulation.

The cry of the human heart  is as expressive of human need as it can be when the heart crys out and nobody hears   but God.  The heart expresses the soul’s progress.  As a soul realizes God and His power, and knows God as Helper and Savior, that soul believes the Word more and more. At the same time it is more conscious than   before of its falling short of absolute trust in God.  When you cry out, “Lord, I believe, help Thou mine unbelief!”, the soul begins to progress, to increase in belief and then a cry for more faith— a plea to conquer all unbelief, all lack of trust begins.   You can not believe the Truth unless you know the Truth.   Oh, but I know the truth!, you exclaim…. I once said that, but found out that truth is not what I believe in;   but a person I believe in.  A person who will teach me how to walk, talk, live and live right with other people.  If your Truth is not teaching you to love your neighbor as yourself and to love your enemy the same way, then you do not know TRUTH.   You can not hate another person and love God.   For God is love.  You can not kill another person and love God.  For God  says, you shall not kill.   Living the life of Truth, you must have faith and belief in a person who is TRUTH, who teaches you to love  –  not hate.      

That cry for ‘help my unbelief’ is a prayer that can be answered. More faith, and more love,  and at the same time more power to see where trust is lacking …Children who SEE to go up this path of Truth, Trust, Peace, Love  . . . . and care for yourself and your neighbor and your enemy are going up the path to God’s Truth each step of the way, closer and closer to the ONE TRUE GOD.  . . . . . .   and   I  AM  is  HIS NAME>

When faith fails, go to the One who can grow your faith when you pray, “Lord, help mine unbelief!”.   He will answer and your prayers will manifest.

Try Truth!
