Help my unbelief!

17And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit;
18And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not.
19He answereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him unto me.
20And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming.
21And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a child.
22And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us.
23Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
24And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.
25When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him.
26And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead.
27But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose.

Came across Mark 9:24 today. Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.
I know how that father felt (coincidentally, today’s Father’s Day). I do ever so often felt the same. Sometime I force myself to step up in faith, some times I’d just shy away.
Help Thou mine unbelief. That father had a good confession, he wants to believe, yet other half is probably telling him “Are you sure?” However, what impressed me was what Jesus did thereafter.
Jesus healed the child. What a wonderful savior we have in Jesus! He knows our heart, our thoughts, our feelings, our everything!

This unbelief will always come to us as long as we walk with Christ. Cry out! Help my unbelief!

As long as with our mouth with convictions confess I believe! Jesus will start that wonderful work of faith in us, till we see him face to face.

All glory be to Christ, our Lord and Savior.
