jesus i believe, help my unbelief song

 The part that would send me to heaven when I died, avoiding the whole lake of fire thing. What happens is that the Holy Spirit convicts you.  Maybe it’s my personality (type A perfectionist, like to control and analyze everything), or maybe it’s just God’s chosen path for me.  Maybe it’s so I can write this to help those who are on that same path. AZLyrics. You cling to anything with a weak “you belong” signal.  Friends, alcohol, boyfriends/girlfriends, sex, drugs, parties, whatever it is.  But…those make terrible North’s as they aren’t true… so each time one fails you your compass is spinning and swirling on end again trying to find a stable beeping home base.  Only then will your works be “a fragrant offering, a sacrifice acceptable and pleasing to God” (Phil 4:18). They stood on top of pillars for months on end, they hid themselves in caves and refused to come out, they ate bugs or went on forty day fasts consuming nothing but water. 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).  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.  With Jesus it’s all or nothing – if I’m not FOR Him, I’m AGAINST Him. Think over your life.  When and where have seeds been planted and watered?  Is there someone who has been praying for you?  How undeserving I am of His love and sacrifice. Luke 17:5 And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith. 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! When we let our compass get bonked we reset our needle to the Source. And gently, but very clearly, God told me to STOP. Learn to help others be honest with their doubts by receiving your friends’ doubts with Christ-like tenderness. Adverb from euthus; directly, i.e. Help me in my unbelief! 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…. A primary pronoun of the first person I. Unbelief, unfaithfulness, distrust. 25 When Jesus saw that a crowd had come running, He rebuked the unclean spirit. 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…”. It doesn’t save us from hell.  And the point of being saved isn’t actually going to heaven or avoiding hell.  The point of salvation is Jesus. Amen. It’s either the narrow one that leads to life, or the broad one that leads to destruction. B.  Whether that’s another god, or the wisdom of mankind (including our current understanding of scientific and historical discoveries), or the God of the Bible. I wanted to add Jesus as a “part of” my life. 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. No other gate.  Was Jesus Christ not in my heart? This was a rocky time for me. Mark 9:22–24 (HCSB) “But if you can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.” Then Jesus said to him, “‘If you can’? Jesus had just returned from the mount of transfiguration when He came upon a large crowd surrounding His disciples. It’s easy in concept but we can make it very complicated.  This is where something needs to click.  And that they have always been fulfilled – except the ones that are yet to come? (“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. “the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ, our Lord” (Romans 3:23). The Bible doesn’t leave any room for a middle road. If this is God’s job, I realized, surely He is good at His job. 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? From apistos; faithlessness, i.e. I had chosen God.  We know this.  Why then, did I feel such unease in my spirit? My sweet friends, subsequent to salvation we absolutely do want to obey Jesus. 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.  Like little children, we have faith that our Father will take care of us (and our heavenly Father does so perfectly). I’m sure you’ve heard the terms, but it’s called being born again.  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!!!”. Let me be clear upfront that we can’t earn or maintain our salvation in any way.  There is nothing – nothing at all – that we can do to “deserve” salvation.   I deliberately CHOSE GOD.  I chose to keep seeking until He gave me assurance of salvation. When I consciously volunteered my heart to God – his forgiveness was so freeing! But I still didn’t react right. I was scared to invite God to examine the dark corners of my heart. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. But now you actually have to get found and have that blood of Jesus applied to the doorposts of your heart so God’s eternal wrath will pass you by.  In the court of God’s law you will then be declared innocent – ransom price paid in full.  This doesn’t even take words!  It doesn’t take any action.  It’s more like an inaction… A surrender.  A letting go.  Of control, of your future, of yourself, of your way of thinking, or your goals, of your dreams, just a complete and total letting go and falling into God’s arms.  Giving up YOU for HIM. I could look the part, say the right words. Stopping religion and works and trying and proving. You cannot serve God and wealth.” Matthew 6:24). A letting go. 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. 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.  No other religious book has the track record of archeological and historical proof that the Bible does.  In the end it came down to another conviction.  From watching all the signs going on in the world around us, I believe that our time is short.  Many signs indicate that Jesus will come back – SOON. Either I am following Self or I am following Jesus. 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. This thrives on going from experience to experience. Stopping… And letting go.\. And I sobbed – Who am I to know my heart?  Jeremiah 29:13. If we find our seeing of Jesus is impaired, Thomas teaches us not to declare, “Unless I see I will never believe,” but rather, “I believe; help my unbelief” (Mark 9:24). At one point, we choose faith in something. It’s more like an inaction – a surrender. I now believed God was worth pursuing relentlessly, that what the Bible said about Him and eternity was true.  It wavered. If we believe what God has said about us (we are totally lost and have no hope of saving ourselves), and what He has done to fix it (Jesus is the only way as a Savior), we can obtain this “forgiveness slip”. Jesus ordered the unclean spirit to leave the boy and never return, and just like that, he was healed. I am so helped a short story in the gospel of Mark where a man cries out to Jesus: “I believe; help my unbelief!” That sounds so honest! It is a prayer acknowledging that without God we cannot believe as we ought to believe. ALL my heart.  When we see how far short we fall of God’s glory, when we realize our utter inability to do anything about it, when we desire to clothe ourselves with Jesus’ blood and righteousness, when we TURN from following ME to following HIM, we are saved. I wanted Jesus to be my Lord. I stubbornly kept God’s promise in front of my blurry eyes and held Him to it – “You WILL find Me *if* you seek me with *all* your heart”. We must understand that we do, truly, deserve God’s wrath.  God does not consider sin lightly.  When Jesus hung on the cross in agony, tortured and beaten almost beyond recognition, He was not taking your sin upon Himself lightly.  How “Christian” do we have to be, to be saved?  The short answer is, ALL THE WAY, ENTIRELY Christian.  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”?  I chose to confront the following questions: 1. What about you?  Can you understand that God saves you *in spite* of your badness?  Can you comprehend His mercy through the blood of Christ, which will withhold His eternal punishment upon you? In the deserts of Egypt in the years after Jesus’s resurrection, a community of monks formed. I think my experience was best described as the weedy and rocky soils.  Remember that these soils send out sprouts (emotional experiences, re-dedications, intellectual training, etc. When this father cried out, “I believe, help my unbelief” he had a specific doubt in mind. These all led to “emotional” experiences, of feeling my heart and head lined up temporarily.  ALL my heart. God told me – stop throwing your gross dirty rags my way.  Just – Rest. I finally wondered, DO I have saving faith? What I struggled with was internalizing the truth of Christianity in my heart. Now, I say I *chose* God. The Bible tells us what saved people look like, so I’m going to do all the things that saved people do. I have DONE all I can think of to DO. Several years ago, our family went through some big changes and trials.  I prayed to God for a fresh start – a time of spiritual awakening.  I prayed for it for several years.  And I committed to wrestling it through.  As always, there was temptation to be pulled away.  But this time, I pressed on anyways in dogged determination.  I kept quoting: “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” (Jeremiah 29:13), I would repeat it to God in my prayers – “God, you say in the Bible that I WILL find You if I seek You with all my heart.  I’m holding You to Your word.  I WILL keep seeking You until I find You.”. Father, (Heavenly) Father, ancestor, elder, senior. Once we understand what we deserve, sometimes we don’t like that helpless feeling of not being able to earn or maintain their own salvation, so they add traditions and works in an attempt to “measure up”.  They want to feel as if they have some control over the process (if I do X and Y, then I’m “good enough”; conversely, if I do NOT do X and Y, I am NOT “good enough”).   Thus, they think they need to suffer a little bit – or maybe a lot – before they are worthy of “rescue”.  There may be a deep-seated unconscious desire to pay for their badness.  This felt need for punishment often has its’ roots in childhood. Now listen.  Throughout the history of mankind, there have always been two competing voices in our spiritual ears. I, the first-person pronoun. He’s calling each and every one of you.  Sometimes we must ask, and ask, and ask, and ask… Like the persistent widow (Luke 18:1-8).  My heart is a fickle thing, full of deceit and selfish motives. It wasn’t a fast or easy process. Come Sit Down.  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. 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). When a very close uncle and cousin were killed in a motor vehicle accident, I was very angry with God for allowing it to happen.  Shortly after this, I was walking with several co-workers, who were talking about the Christian religion.  One said, “If they truly believed in that life after death stuff, they wouldn’t get all upset when one of them dies.”  I didn’t respond.  How could I?  Touché. But because of Thomas’s unbelief, Jesus made him a gracious example for us of the wrong kind of seeing to demand. Now that I had decided I wanted to wholeheartedly be saved – that Jesus was right, and I was wrong – I wanted to control the process. Saving faith results in works, so if I don’t do the works, I’m not saved. To cry aloud, shriek. 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”. And yet it eludes me. His blood paid the price required by God for our sins.  But for the first time, I think my heart caught a glimpse of what that really meant…. And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. Did I want to be delivered from my sins, or did I want to “go to heaven”?  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”. While outwardly we are wasting away, inwardly we are being renewed day by day.  It’s about an heart transformation from the inside out, and that is the hard thing to grasp in “religion” which is focused on the outside. Or another way of saying whatever is true right pure and lovely, keep your thoughts on these things. album: "Beautiful Offerings" (2015) Beautiful Offering. I believe, Lord, help my unbelief Give the vision that I may see That I am safe in your care Oh Lord, when I'm running ahead of You When I'm trusting this world for truth Remind me that You do what You say And You're all that You claim I believe, Lord, help my unbelief. I had examined my heart. EHSS - I Believe, Help Thou My Unbelief” is from our new CD ”Something Beautiful" Our Favorite Songs of Bill & Gloria Gaither. The full context of the man’s prayer, “I believe; help my unbelief!” helps make his meaning clearer. So, I did. Credit; by implication, to entrust. Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. I want it. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.  (Ephesians 2:8-9). If you are struggling on the precipice of decision, don’t let it go. My heart struggles to believe the promises of Christ and my guess it’s a struggle for all of us. I was personally confident in the “facts” of Christianity, in my head. Following Jesus isn’t about rules. So how does your belief in Jesus affect your life? Examine Yourselves, To See if You Are In The Faith. “You deaf and mute spirit,” he said, “I command you, come out of him and never enter him again.” New International Version (NIV) With my new-found conviction about being lukewarm, I threw myself right over the narrow road into the other ditch of legalism.  Again, this is very typical of my personality – I’m not one to do anything half-heartedly. 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). My loves, we have no control.  We are completely, utterly, totally, helplessly dependent upon Jesus for salvation.  No amount of suffering, trials, tribulation, or even a martyr’s death, would make us worthy!  Why couldn’t I just lah-di-dah in faith, carefree, as many seem to be able to do? Remember when I said that when I examined my life, I saw no “fruit of the Spirit”?  I struggled with depression and anger.  I had no joy or peace.  I wasn’t particularly loving.  I held these up, and decided I wanted to force these fruits in myself.  So I went about with checklists and Bible studies on the fruit.  I purchased some tzitzit (the tassles Jewish men hung on their clothing) to wear as bracelets to remind me to choose goodness and holiness.  I wrote on my arms and hands to desperately try to curb my angry outbursts at my then-toddlers.  I plastered verses on my mirrors and in my cupboards.  I started fasting regularly.  I tossed out things that weren’t “true, right, pure, good, or lovely”.  I stopped celebrating secular holidays and learned about the Feasts of the Lord. “But God demonstrates His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8). We don’t have to, and can’t, maintain it ourselves. When we pray, “I believe, help my unbelief,” he will. [G D Em C B A Bm] Chords for I Believe, Help My Unbelief (New Gospel Song) with capo transposer, play along with guitar, piano, ukulele & mandolin. In this category we have word of faith, lukewarm, half-hearted, etc. So, despite this being a very negative and terrifying experience, it definitely convinced me that there is a spiritual (usually unseen) realm.  The parts about dying to self, making disciples of all nations, and being persecuted for my faith….not so comfortable. Change ). When the disciples ask why they couldn’t heal him, he answers ““This kind can come out only by prayer.” {Mark 9:29} “Help My Unbelief” is a song that has helped me to put into words what’s true of my heart and has served as a helpful prayer that I can come back to throughout my day. Jesus is the Door. 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. The purpose of your life is to live with JESUS as your compass. Help my unbelief.” What to remember about doubt While we can’t open our own spiritual eyes, we can certainly choose to close them – we don’t see what we don’t want to see.  Faith, like love, is a CHOICE.   We all put our faith somewhere.  A comfortable part. You try to be a “good Christian” but it “doesn’t work” for you.  It seems like the harder you try, the worse you fall.  But the thing is, TRUE Christianity isn’t a religion.  And that’s why it’s hard to figure out on a purely intellectual level!  Intelligent as we are, I think it’s a pretty big stretch to say that mankind “knows it all”!  I was keeping Jesus on the porch, trying to entertain him through the screen door.  It was this I struggled with for decades. disbelief, or unfaithfulness. 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! Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith.  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. 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.  We even make cartoons about it!  We have God’s Holy Spirit convicting us on the one side, and satan’s hiss on the other. Previously, when I did pursue God, I would give up if I didn’t seem to get what I wanted (a feeling of closeness, answered prayer, etc). You were made for a purpose.  There is a reason why you are here, in THIS time and in THIS place.  You aren’t accidental.  All those parts of you that don’t feel whole but want to be whole, that’s because you were created for a purpose, to have meaning.  But you haven’t found it yet!  So you’ve probably tried many things to fill it… As most of us do….  But I have had to wrestle through these issues of faith to the point of exhaustion. Pray With Me:  Jesus, I ask that You would open my eyes to see spiritual realities today.  I understand the truths of heaven, hell, and the spiritual realm in my mind, but let me know and understand it in my heart. True salvation results in a changed life.  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. It doesn’t take any words.  Salvation is described as being “born-again”. When Jesus gently pointed that out, the father of the boy with the unclean spirit quickly stated, “I believe, help Thou my unbelief.” Help me remember, Lord, that You are capable of ALL things, and NOTHING is too great for You to heal. Pray With Me:  Jesus, I believe in You.  Help me in my unbelief!  Open my spiritual eyes, that I might see!  Speak into my heart and transform me from the inside out! It believes true salvation can be lost, if we sin or aren’t good enough. “If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord”, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. The Bible makes it clear that every sin has to be punished by death and paid by the penalty of innocent blood. 24 Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!” 25 When Jesus saw that a crowd was running to the scene, he rebuked the impure spirit. I had confronted my beliefs intellectually.  There is no partway. 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! Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers, NT Gospels: Mark 9:24 Immediately the father of the child cried (Mar Mk Mr) Christian Bible Study Resources, Dictionary, Concordance and Search Tools. Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.  We are utterly, and completely, helpless to do anything about our own condition. This is a task that ONLY YOU can do. When you are a baby your compass points to your parents.  God has given many signs so we can prepare our hearts.  How much harder does He have to shake us out of slumber? Then, why didn’t my head and heart agree?Â. I BELIEVE, HELP MY UNBELIEF. We should ask God for help in our unique arenas of doubt. People assured me over and over again that I was saved, quoting scripture to prove it.  Please do it for me!  It’s too big for me – I need YOU!”  We agree that our way is the wrong way, and we choose to follow His way, with Him in control. From boethos; to aid or relieve. The Name at which every knee will bow, every tongue confess that He is Lord.  Salvation is the finished work of Christ. How many times have we been told “act as if”?  He had wrestled with some big issues, and his conclusions led him away from God. But the truth of the matter was, I STILL HAD THAT DEEP EMPTINESS.  I *wanted* to say that Jesus had filled it.  But the truth was, He hadn’t.  If I would have been honest, my testimony would have looked more like: “Guys, I’m unhappy.  At times I’m downright depressed, anxious, and miserable.  Sometimes I feel like I don’t know what’s real and what isn’t.  Sometimes I think about suicide.  But I don’t know if I’d for sure go to heaven.  I want to feel loved, accepted, and secure.  But I don’t.  I’ve looked for it in many places, but everything has come up short.  I want to have purpose, direction, and meaning.  Being a “type A” personality, I’ve tried to find meaning through accomplishing – getting good marks in school.  But I was never “good ENOUGH”.  I’ve tried finding it in popularity and acceptance, in dating and in men.  But I was used, humiliated, betrayed.  I tried finding it in marriage, but unfortunately this has turned into a daily struggle.  I tried finding it in my career – getting diplomas and letters behind my name.  I even tried finding it at Bible school.  That year was one of the most miserable of my life!  It was all empty, a chasing after the wind.Â.
