Beloved, is there any burden in your heart? Are you afraid of what might become of that situation if God did not show up? Does that sickness suddenly become a nightmare? That wayward child or spouse is making you restless?

Never mind, God is still God. He will never fail you nor forsake you. He is dependable, Reliable and Steadfast. There is none like Him. All that is needed of you now is to believe Him and obey Him. Hold on to Him, at the nick of time, He will be there. I am not trying to make light of the situation at hand rather I am convinced that He will do it. It may not happen at our own time but He holds the perfect time of every situation in His hand.

The case study we have in our teaching today will further help your understand and knowledge of our topic of discuss. Come along with me as we learn more at His Feet:

Immediately the father of the boy cried out, “I do believe! Help my unbelief.”—Mark 9:24

Faith does not come from ignorance. Faith is based on what we know.

Before we will trust others with something precious to us, we first try to find out if they are trustworthy. This father was asking that he might come to know God in such a dimension that he could trust Him to cure his son.

His son had been possessed by an evil spirit since early childhood. The father did not know Jesus well, but he had heard and seen enough to convince him that if there was any hope for his son, it lay with Jesus. In desperation he cried out to Jesus for help. Jesus’ response was to heal his son. The desperate father had correctly gone to Jesus with his problem even though he was struggling with his faith.

When you are struggling to believe, that is not the time to avoid Christ or to be ashamed of your struggle. You will never increase your faith by not going to Jesus! Rather, Jesus wants to help you with your belief. He can not only meet your need, but He will also give you faith to trust Him to provide for you.

If you are struggling to believe that God can take care of your need, it is because you don’t know Him as He wants you to. Go to Him and allow Him to convince you of His ability to meet every need you will ever face.

Beloved, did you study yesterday’s teaching? Did you read the first sentence above “our faith does not come from ignorance rather is firmly based on knowledge which I tried to illustrate with parent and child relationship. Let’s read further:

“She bound the scarlet line in the window.” Joshua 2:21

Rahab depended for her preservation upon the promise of the spies, whom she looked upon as the representatives of the God of Israel. Her faith was simple and firm, but it was very obedient. To tie the scarlet line in the window was a very trivial act in itself, but she dared not run the risk of omitting it.

Come, my soul, is there not here a lesson for thee? Hast thou been attentive to all thy Lord’s will, even though some of His commands should seem non-essential? Hast thou observed in his own way the two ordinances of believers’ baptism and the Lord’s Supper? These neglected, argue much unloving disobedience in thy heart. Be henceforth in all things blameless, even to the tying of a thread, if that be matter of command.

This act of Rahab sets forth a yet more solemn lesson. Have I implicitly trusted in the precious blood of Jesus? Have I tied the scarlet cord, as with a Gordian knot in my window, so that my trust can never be removed? Or can I look out towards the Dead Sea of my sins, or the Jerusalem of my hopes, without seeing the blood, and seeing all things in connection with its blessed power?

The passer-by can see a cord of so conspicuous a colour, if it hangs from the window: it will be well for me if my life makes the efficacy of the atonement conspicuous to all onlookers. What is there to be ashamed of? Let men or devils gaze if they will, the blood is my boast and my song. My soul, there is One who will see that scarlet line, even when from weakness of faith thou canst not see it thyself; Jehovah, the Avenger, will see it and pass over thee.

Jericho’s walls fell flat: Rahab’s house was on the wall, and yet it stood unmoved; my nature is built into the wall of humanity, and yet when destruction smites the race, I shall be secure. My soul, tie the scarlet thread in the window afresh, and rest in peace.

Rahab was yet to experience the mighty works of the God of Israel personally but she believe the spies base on the knowledge she had about their God – simple as it seems but difficult to put practice in our time despite all we have heard and seen God do in our midst.

Are you crying out to God this moment to help Your unbelief? She did not just believe, she was also obedient the instruction given her. Do you know that she would have missed her miracle though she believe but was not obedient?

Beloved, we need to check out where and why we are missing our miracles and quickly obey. Recently I received a miracle based on obeying an instruction given by the servant of God. it was simple but if I had not obey him is very possible that I would gone home after the service without receiving that healing miracle (I had a shift Disc 17years ago which also affected my anal bone and pelvic bone) I had at various time been healed but only to discover that it was multiple shift from the spinel bone downward. So early this year I handed the total restoration of whatever that is wrong.

The man of God mentioned my case during the service and true to it I was in pains during the week and several others cases that were mentioned but the instruction here was for those that were effected to ‘stand out to be prayed for’. I was tempted to sit back but I quickly jump up to avoid reasoning out the instruction. Beloved, it was in my standing up that my healing came. I Immediately I felt as if the upper part of my body was lifted and keyed back and that was it. For the first time I felt straightened, I sat down without feeling pain at my pelvic bone. Praise the Lord.

Beloved, you need to check out why that miracle is yet to be. Are you disobeying any instruction given to you concerning it. It is not enough to have faith, it is very important that we obey the instructions given. If I have not obeyed the instruction though I believe God and I also believe His servant, nothing would have happened as my healing was based on my obeying the instruction “stand up and be pray for. Praise God.

Finally, as we shout out to God today to help our unbelief, let us also ensure that we will obey every instruction given to us.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
