You are the Teacher,
The Trier of men’s hearts.
You are Trustworthy,
You are the strong Tower I can run to and be safe.
You will Triumph in the end and you Triumph now.
One day you will wipe away every Tear.
But the LORD is the true God; He is the living God and the everlasting King. At His wrath the earth quakes, And the nations cannot endure His indignation. (Jer. 10:10 NASB)
Lord, help me to Trust you in every circumstance and situation.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. (Prov. 3:5-6 NKJV)
In Mark 9:20-24, the father of a boy who had been tormented by an evil spirit for years asked Jesus to help his son. Jesus told him, “All things are possible for one who believes.” Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, “I believe; help my unbelief!” (ESV)
Isn’t that how we respond sometimes? I know I do. I truly believe God’s promises, but then doubt seeps into my mind and heart, along with fear. Will God really help me? God understands our human frailties, of course, and here Jesus helped the man who was honest enough to ask for help with his unbelief.
We can do no less.
