But God!

Mark 9:20-27 And they brought him unto Him: and when He saw him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming. And He asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a child. And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if Thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us.

Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help Thou mine unbelief.
When Jesus saw that the people came running together, He rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him.
And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, he is dead. But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose.
Subtlety has never been a strength of mine. No, this is not the entire story, no Paul Harvey moment here. My attention tonight was drawn closely to this Passage, most especially (from beginning to end):(1) Our heart is well-aware that Christ is capable of doing something, does our mind often times attempt to convince us otherwise? Do we think “Certainly He can, but will He”? Zero doubt about God’s Power and Ability! (2) Helping our unbelief. As in the above, we want to believe. We know God has the Ultimate Authority. Every power and principality are in subjection to Him. God reigns over our health, safety, jobs, homes, relationships, any and all circumstances and situations. The enemy attempts to capsize our faith, by overloading us with seeds of doubt. The more we allow him to whisper discouragement and lie after lie, we are apt to slip into a place where uncertainty starts to take root. Let’s continue to seek out the Father’s help in strengthening and deepening our belief in Him.(3)When Jesus commands, there is no option for that spirit but to obey. It MUST, moreover, it cried in defeat as it left the boy. Jesus SPEAKS something, it happens. How is that for POWER! (4)According to those around, the boy was considered dead, then those sweet words “BUT JESUS”! How many times in our lives, only so far, have we been able to testify to that very thing. Situations seem hopeless, circumstances are horrific, BUT JESUS! He took him by the hand and he rose. What Power and Might! That is Who we call “Father”.

First, and most importantly, I love Jesus Christ and I trust in Him as my Lord and Savior. I was raised in a Christian home by a godly dad and mom (who planned and had me in July before turning 42 in August), and 5 older siblings. My father passed away when I was 7 and my mother (who went to be with the Lord in 2005 at 81) never remarried. As a child, I was bullied at school, so I did not have many friends. I didn't want to tell my mom this because I knew she had enough worry being a widow at 50. I know what it is like to be lonely. As an adult, God showed me the value of His Friendship and has blessed me, too, with rich relationships with dear friends who also love the Lord. My husband and I (married 31 years as of 2020), have three wonderful, adult children and son-in-law as well as three darling grandchildren. Along with many others, my husband lost his job, but we refuse to be fearful or angry. The Lord has provided for us and we are so thankful for the opportunity to express gratitude through personal contact and occasional memories I share through writing. I believe the Lord has given me a venue to engage with others and a means to share His Word. Thank you for checking out my page. I hope you enjoy what you read. If there is anything positive or insightful in the devotionals (NOT CALLING MY WRITING "INSPIRED" by any means!), I give all credit and glory to Jesus Christ! On the other side of that, when something makes no sense, that's all me
