    ” I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!” Mark 9:24

    This mornings devotion was a little bit of a gut punch to me. I have definitely been guilty of believing in God ,but not always believing God. His Word and His promises are true!!! When I was in high school a popular phrase was ” believe that”. When it comes to God’s Word we can ” believe that”.

    “Search me, God, and know my heart;
    test me and know my anxious thoughts.
    24 See if there is any offensive way in me,
    and lead me in the way everlasting.” – Psalm 139:23-24

    This is what comes to mind when he speaks of Jesus shining a light in all the dark recesses of our heart.

    I can definitely identify with the idea that I could do this on my own. I lived that way for a majority of my life and I look back now and shake my head at my foolishness.

    “Belieb dat”!!! haha

    I remember that, and your exactly right- for me this mornings devotion speaks the great depths of Gods love and drawing attention to the word “savior”. As Walt touches on, being born in SIN- but taking it further and being a slave to sin, due to a very surface level acceptance of Gods love and forgiveness- until by the grace of God he opens the eyes of the prodigal, and rescues him once again and the sinner sees the path of destruction he was on and discovers again through the grace and power of the Holy Spirit through Christ that he can “believe that”, with gratitude the promises, love and forgiveness that we’re once just words in a song or on a page- now offer life changing power, by the grace of God and His will for His glory alone.
