There are those who have a difficult time believing in God. There are those who simply do not believe in God. There are some who want to believe but are hesitant for reasons of their own.
We have all heard that if you want something you simply ask. Even scripture tells us: “You do not have because you do not ask God” (James 4:2)
Mark tells us that a father whose son had suffered from demon possession went to Jesus for help, saying, “If you can do anything, take pity on us and help us.” Jesus answered, “If you can? Everything is possible for him who believes.” The anxious father then told Jesus, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”
How many of us need to make that plea: “Help me to overcome.”
