Sermon-Lord I believe but Help my unbelief Mark 9:14-29 August 6, 2017
There was a man, like any man that did not want to pay others to do work on his home after a storm. He said I can do it myself. It will not take that long . Any of you ever feel that way? Of course, you have. So he went on the roof and trying to clean off the limbs and the leaves . But, it was harder than he thought and it took longer than he expected. He got hot, tired and, dizzy. and he lost his footing. So, as he is falling ,he is able to catch the gutter with one hand.
As he looks down and sees how far it is to the ground he does a smart thing and he looks up. He says to the heavens, My God can you help me? So, then the clouds parted and the voice of God answers and says, I am here my child just let go.
The man looks down and then looks up again and says, Is there anybody else up there that can help me?
Now, we can all laugh it up at his foolishness but, we all are guilty of the same thing. Saying we believe but, believing half-heartedly. We sing, “Take Your burdens to the Lord and leave them there” at church. We go to the altar and pray for all the issues in our life and then, pick them up and take them back with us.
Try these 3 Steps and watch your FAITH increase.
1.Keep Looking Up to GOD (PSALM 121)
2.Let Go and Let GOD (Hebrews 12:1-2 )
3.Take A LEAP of FAITH.-GOD will never leave you or forsake you. If GOD says LEAP -JUMP TO IT.
