Exist: By Faith: Prayers and Poetry


Hebrews 11:6, “….without faith, it is impossible to please God, for whoever would approach him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.”

Exist

For those who have met You Lord, or even had a glimpse of You, we doubt one would ever really deny Your existence. In our darkest moments that idea has never once taken root and yet there are questions that bring so many doubts, so many ‘but what if’ possibilities to block us from truly recognizing Your ability or Your willingness to act.

What if we are not welcome or not worthy? What if You exclude us because of our sin, or our selfishness? What if You see through our shields of hypocrisy? What if You can’t really help?

A desperate father brought to Jesus the plight of his son, his history since early childhood, the inability of healers to help him, the inability of the disciples to cure him and begged Jesus as his last hope, if you can—please help. And then his heart wrenching honest cry—“I do believe, help my unbelief.”

Often our faith staggers. We desire to walk in confidence and boldness. To bless and to be blessed according to God’s plans. But we focus on our own inadequacies instead of His power and grace. And create impossibilities before we even hear God’s reply.

Help us, Lord, to come seeking Your will in faith, acknowledging the excuses we try to hide behind. Because You answer in spite of our feeble hope and in the presence of our failures that mock us. Please strengthen our faith into trust that really changes our lives as we daily walk in expectation.   

Your thoughts,
