Only Believe!


Do you ever find it is hard to Trust in God? Life will sometimes make you feel like you are all alone, and that just because you cannot trace God, you can't Trust Him! I am constantly inspired by the testimony and song by James Fortune—"I Trust You"… The song is more than lyrics, but a Testimony! "I'll Trust you, Lord it is not easy, and sometimes the pain in my life make You seem far away…" James Fortune simply ends this song with the words of "I Will Trust You!"

So today, when it is hard to Trust God, just Only Believe that you will make, and that He will see you through! Decree and Declare today, "Lord, I Will Trust You!"


Only Believe


Jesus said to him, "If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes."
24Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, "Lord, I believe; Help my Unbelief!"
(Mark 9:23-24).

When the report is so bad and Jesus is still on His way to you but you haven't seen Him show up yet, only believe.  Some situations in life will necessitate that you have an "only believe" in your spirit.  Only believe: Believe that God is for you and that He is more than the world against you.  Believe that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of His coming.  Only believe your child is coming back home and coming off drugs. Only believe your husband will be delivered.  Only believe that your marriage will be made whole.  Only believe that your body will be healed.  Work your "only believe" faith.  You can make it, because God said that you would.

Help! My Unbelief!  The word help is a powerful word; it signifies our limitations and weakness, but speaks to God's strength.  When you shout "Help!" the Father sends forth His warring angels to undergird and protect you.  Many of you would say to the Father, "I believe, but help my unbelief, the part of me that still looks at the natural (the temporary) and not at the spiritual (the permanent), that which is eternal and unseen."

The father was essentially saying to Jesus, "Help me not to give up right when breakthrough is within reach, especially since everyone else has failed me. Help me to believe in you, no matter what.  "If you can believe, all things are possible, to him who believes."  The things that you truly desire and need will happen the moment you decide to believe, because it is at these moments that you actually visualize yourself achieving it all.  When you shift from no faith and no belief into an "only believe" place of life, nothing will be impossible to you.

Immediately, the father cried out, "Lord, I believe; help my unbelief." This was when his miracle came forth.  Sometimes, all you have left is a cry, some tears, and a little belief, but just shout out loud to your Father, "Help me!" The Bible says, "He is a very present help in the time of trouble."

In your time of trouble, God will hide you and send help to you: help to lift you out of a pit, out of a prison, out of despair, out of depression, out of a storm, out of a shipwreck, out of addictions, and out of the chains of your past.  Right now, shout, "Lord, I Believe; Help my Unbelief!"  Notice, the father did not say I believe but…rather he shouted, "Lord."  If he had said "but" then that would have signified doubt.  Therefore, he just shouted, "Lord, help!"  Sometimes the situation is so bad that you don't have time to shout out any "buts"; you just have to get right to the point and shout, "Help!"

Asking for help does not make you weak, but suffering because of your pride and not asking God to help you does.  There is strength in your situation that you have to tap into in order to come out of it.
