Jesus tells the father of a boy possessed by demons that “All things are possible to him who believes.” In distress, the father cries out, “I believe; help my unbelief!” While seemingly a paradox, this statement describes how many Christians feel about their own faith. We believe, but we know that we need help to overcome our unbelief.
Help My Unbelief meets Christians where we are today. It addresses all the places where our faith wavers and we’re not sure what we really believe. But the good news is that this is normal, and it’s not necessarily a bad thing. Recognizing our weak spots leads us to question and delve more deeply into scripture, and ultimately can bring us closer to God.
Our faith is a gift of the Holy Spirit. This side of Paradise, we simply won’t know all the answers. Help My Unbelief reassures us that we’re on the right path even when we doubt, and that others are struggling along with us. I highly recommend it.
