Daily Devotion: Unbelief

Bible Reading: Mark 9:14-32

Key Verse: Verse 24 “And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.”

Key Words: help thou mine unbelief

It’s amazing to me how many people live with doubts, superstitions, and unbelief. These three can cause some really hard times in our lives.

  • Cain didn’t believe and ended up being a vagabond.

  • Saul didn’t believe and lost his kingdom.

  • Israel didn’t believe and ended up in captivity (book of Nehemiah).

  • The Pharisees didn’t believe and crucified Jesus, to no avail. Praise God, He arose on the third day!

The disciples of Jesus said they believed and then confessed that they really didn’t. So it was with the father of the demon-possessed boy. Unbelief can and will lead to some hard times.

Two fishermen were driving along a highway when they came to a crossroad with a "Closed" sign blocking the main road. They noticed fresh tire tracks leading around the sign, so they decided to follow the tracks and disregard the sign. They had gone some three miles when the road ended at a broken bridge. The only thing to do was turn around, and on passing the road block again they observed this inscription on the reverse side of the sign: "It was really closed, wasn't it?"

Not believing God causes many people to have to make U-turns in life. If only they had believed!!

What to do:

✞ Lord, please revive us again!
