Overcome by Faith

I was having Bible study just a few moments ago with a group of friends (it was so powerful and wonderful in so many ways) and I have to share the experience with you guys because I know I am not the only one that feels this way and I know it will be helpful to someone willing to read and who just wants a closer relationship with God because you have turned to everything else and nothing else works. The title of the lesson was Overcome by Faith. In the story, Jesus removes an evil spirit from a little boy. This little boy's father did everything he could do for his son, the little boy, and so the father gave the little boy to Jesus and let Him handle the situation. The story starts with Jesus' disciples not being able to handle the situation because they didnt realize their authority and decided to cast out the evil spirit through arguing. Jesus steps in (the power over all things) and cast out the evil spirit from the little boy because of course Jesus is the only way to cast out evil spirits. He is!!!! period. Read Mark 9: 14-29

Basically what hit me the most was when the father of the little boy cried out "I do believe...help me to overcome my unbelief" after Jesus told him, "Everything is possible for him who believes." Sometimes we try to do everything on our own and we take for granted that God is the only one we can run to in a time of trouble. His is the only way. Jesus came to earth to die for our sins and that should show us enough that He cares and will be there for us no matter what the situation. But as humans thinking only with the physical mind we like to see things right now at this second, we dont even realize what God is already doing in our lives. He is the only one to turn to. After friends have given all the advice they can give, after family have given all they can, you have to go to God. There is only so much friends and family can do and even boyfriends for that matter. We need to trust in Him and have faith. He is here to meet you halfway even for those who dont know who He is or dont care to know...He is still there! He has not forgotten about you...you are His child. He will never forsake you...trust in Him!!!!

I just had to share this with you because it really touched my heart. Please read the passage for yourself...it will help you in your walk with Christ. Also we need to start praying for each other and with each other...thats another subject I will touch on later on so be on the look out!!!....love you guys...stay strong...and have faith!!!
