What is your favorite bible verse? Why?
Mine? Mark 9:24
They are words spoken by a frightened father whose son was suffering from a demon. He had asked Jesus to help him IF he can. Jesus replied to him: “‘If you can’?” “Everything is possible for him who believes.”
Then comes the father’s authentic admission in verse 24…
“I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”
I can so relate. That weird mixture of believing – really, truly believing yet being worried and doubting. In turn, Jesus does not chide him but provides sweet relief to the boy’s torment. It encourages me to know that God can help me – even if my faith isn’t perfect.
