And I have things to do, but just thought I’d put out a small blurb because there is an enormous lack of original posts on my tumblr, whoops.
Jesus simply tells him to go, and this man’s son will be healed. And at face value, the man took His words, turned right back around, and walked back to his home where his dying son was, where there was a possibility that he was probably dead by now.
The amount of belief that it took for this father to head home with nothing but Jesus’ words as comfort must have been something else. A father who trekked a days journey to see this Jesus to bring him back to heal his dying son,and had ultimately had to head back without Jesus, only his word.
The wrestling that must’ve gone on, the spiritual war between belief, doubt, hope, hopelessness, it’s something I’ve been going through. I’m tired. And hopeful. Full of unbelief, wanting more faith. But it’s ok :)
Jesus said it will be, and I trust it.
Two verses to keep you/me going through whatever you’re going through today:
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, “I believe; help my unbelief!”
Jesus will help you, even with our very unbelief, so relax and don’t worry, God’s got your back.
