jesus i believe, help my unbelief song

 2 Corinthians 4:4. I long for the day when we hear the call to come home.  Because this walk, this place is so hard,  But we occupy until He comes. I believe this “yo-yo” or “rollercoaster” Christianity is best explained by the parable of the soils: Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.  And while we can’t explain everything yet, new evidence keeps coming forth in favor of the Bible. Either I am trying to add to Christ’s finished work by heaving filthy rags at it, desperately trying to prove how much I yearn for salvation, or I choose not to do good works and get pruned off and burned. There’s only one door to heaven. Open my spiritual eyes, that I might see! But we don’t follow them as if they are a law into themselves. Saving faith results in works, so if I don’t do the works, I’m not saved. It wasn’t a fast or easy process. Pray With Me: Jesus, I believe in You. Are you with me so far?  You’re the sinner, He’s the Savior.  We chose to sin and Jesus chose to be a “sin-bearer” and take God’s wrath for us. When a very close uncle and cousin were killed in a motor vehicle accident, I was very angry with God for allowing it to happen.  Shortly after this, I was walking with several co-workers, who were talking about the Christian religion.  One said, “If they truly believed in that life after death stuff, they wouldn’t get all upset when one of them dies.”  I didn’t respond.  How could I?  Touché. Ask for God’s Help. Come Sit Down. Speak into my heart and transform me from the inside out! I have been crucified with Christ, and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. These all led to “emotional” experiences, of feeling my heart and head lined up temporarily. I remember the moment clearly. The faith to believe in one’s heart is a free gift of God – sometimes He just gives it, sometimes we must ask.  Was I seeking *God*, or warm and fuzzy feelings?  Did I do good things because I wanted to show Jesus my love for Him, or because I wanted to prove to myself I was saved – because “good things” are what “saved people do”? I could look the part, say the right words. 2 Samuel 16:12 It may be that the LORD will look on mine affliction, and that the LORD will requite me good for his cursing this day.  The parts about dying to self, making disciples of all nations, and being persecuted for my faith….not so comfortable. Jesus’ blood pays the full tab of our salvation past, present, and future. If we had to, we couldn’t and we would all be lost!  My inner dialogue went like this: Faith without works is dead, but if we work for our faith Jesus will say to us “I never knew you”. At this point, I spent a few months reading through the gospels and John MacArthur’s The Gospel According to Jesus by flashlight at night while everyone else in the house slept. I was trying to good-works my way to proving my salvation to myself.  Are you trying to get close to Jesus by being good, or are you approaching Him through the cross of mercy? Through Christ God will give you more faith — as you pray for the Spirit’s work, and as you set your heart on his Word.  Salvation is the finished work of Christ. 2) Intellectual assent or emotional experience salvation. Salvation is the gift of God given by grace, through faith.  God’s mercy withholds the punishment we do deserve; God’s grace gifts the salvation we do not deserve. He’s the bread of life, the living water, the way, the truth, the Word.  No other religious book has the track record of archeological and historical proof that the Bible does. It is then that we stumble….  It was this I struggled with for decades.  Through this, God showed me that I was holding out on Him.  I was horribly convicted that I was one of the “lukewarm”. What happens is that the Holy Spirit convicts you.  Did I pray because I knew I should and it was right, or because I genuinely believed that God hears and answers prayer?  Well meaning people assured me that it was just the enemy’s attacks. “But God demonstrates His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8). Including the feminine he, and the neuter to in all their inflections; the definite article; the. When we join God’s spiritual family, we, too, will get a new eternal body someday. I Have Loved You With an Everlasting Love, Follow Following Jesus Daily on, God’s Tender Mercy in the Coronavirus Crisis, Blessed Assurance – A Guide to Rapture Readiness, M1D8 – Commitment to Christianity (the Religion).   I couldn’t maintain a commitment – I would try for awhile (sprout), then give up and focus on LIFE (entertainment, work, buying things, hobbies) (wither/choke out).  Even though I had grown up “Christian”, I struggled with not having boldness to share my faith – or even to admit I had faith when people were openly mocking Christianity. After studying how Jesus fulfilled so many Bible prophecies, the only religion that made sense to me was Christianity (did you know that over 25% of the Bible is prophecy?  A lot.  For the Bible to “speak” into my life evidences to me its’ power as the Word of God. I believe, Lord, help my unbelief Give the vision that I may see That I am safe in your care Oh Lord, when I'm running ahead of You When I'm trusting this world for truth Remind me that You do what You say And You're all that You claim I believe, Lord, help my unbelief. “Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves.  Do I really believe there is a spiritual realm?  Not just, yeah, of course.  But really?  Deep down? It shows a man crying out to Jesus and He embraces him.  I was sitting in the bathroom, telling God that assurance of salvation was just too hard for me.  I didn’t get it… I never would… and I was yelling in my head – “I have tried EVERYTHING…and NOTHING has worked!!!”.  Never feeling entirely secure in my salvation. The father replies “ “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!” {Mark 9:24} Jesus rebukes the spirit who comes out of the boy. Oh, you guys, this was such an agonizing process for me.  Many people don’t have to go through all this, and I’m so glad.  But for those of us who do, you know what a struggle it is!  I like quick fixes as much as anyone else. If someone assents to a belief in God or a general belief in Jesus and the Bible, they are reassured of salvation despite not having a heart experience of repentance, TURNING from sin/self and TOWARDS Christ. I think my experience was best described as the weedy and rocky soils.  Remember that these soils send out sprouts (emotional experiences, re-dedications, intellectual training, etc. Nonetheless, there was a disturbing disconnect that nagged at my soul. Even one wrong thing carries the death penalty in God’s eyes.  You are lost, dead in your sins – “For the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.” (Romans 10:9-10). And I sobbed – Who am I to know my heart? It doesn’t take any words. Help my unbelief  We know this. “You deaf and mute spirit,” He said, “I command you to come out and never enter him again.”… And unless Jesus opens your mind and heart to see Him, you actually cannot become a Christian by trying.  It’s nothing a human can do.  Becoming a true Christian is something God has to do, to us.  Being partway (having some Christian-like beliefs, values, or behaviors) can be a step in our journey towards salvation, but it is never an endpoint. “the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ, our Lord” (Romans 3:23).  John 1:4-5. Jesus today I erase the box off MY checklist and put it on YOURS.  Why couldn’t I just lah-di-dah in faith, carefree, as many seem to be able to do? Same with authoritarian parenting if we were brought up strictly, it can be difficult for us to focus on the heart rather than on the behavior outwardly. When you are a baby your compass points to your parents. “You deaf and mute spirit,” he said, “I command you, come out of him and never enter him again.” New International Version (NIV)  It happens in our hearts – it doesn’t even have to be a prayer. But now you actually have to get found and have that blood of Jesus applied to the doorposts of your heart so God’s eternal wrath will pass you by.  In the court of God’s law you will then be declared innocent – ransom price paid in full.  This doesn’t even take words!  It doesn’t take any action.  It’s more like an inaction… A surrender.  A letting go.  Of control, of your future, of yourself, of your way of thinking, or your goals, of your dreams, just a complete and total letting go and falling into God’s arms.  Giving up YOU for HIM. “There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” (Romans 8:1 ESV). And gently, but very clearly, God told me to STOP.  I am consciously CHOOSING to put my faith in God, trusting that He will take it from there. of a worn out rope God help oh me of little hope Lord, I believe but help my unbelief cause Trust and fear are fighting and I'm somewhere in between Let Your Power Fall God told me – stop throwing your gross dirty rags my way.  Just – Rest.  And that they have always been fulfilled – except the ones that are yet to come? I am also helped by the following two songs, both of which speak of the precariousness of faith and the coldness of the human heart: 1. This was a rocky time for me. Stopping religion and works and trying and proving. Stopping… And letting go.\. Test yourselves. Very common in “religious” circles.  Matthew 18:3. This post is very long, but then – you’ve been struggling for a long time, right?  I can’t lead your heart in two or three paragraphs.   So get comfy, get some tissues, and get ready.  I know this is all still rough and skips around in places, but it probably never will be “perfect”.  It’s a work in progress.  Just like I am.  Just like you are.  Sure, I had experiences of ups and downs in my spiritual journey. See to it that you do not refuse Him who speaks.  We throw ourselves at God’s feet, acknowledging we are wretched, poor, blind and naked.   For me, this came in the form of stumbling across an evangelical-Christian-turned-atheist’s website. Following Jesus isn’t about rules. It is a prayer acknowledging that without God we cannot believe as we ought to believe.  I could ignore it, or I could explore further. We can’t birth ourselves.  So there’s really no point in trying to get saved, because we can’t and we won’t.  I mean, the morals are good for everyone around us and ourselves too, because it’s a rational and loving way to live.  But following Christian teaching doesn’t save us. 2. If this is God’s job, I realized, surely He is good at His job. And here you are.  God made you.  He called you into being.  You are “fearfully and wonderfully made”.  He has a plan for your life and He WANTS you.  He wants to be in relationship with you.  Not in a begging pleading kind of way, but He made you to be in His family and basically you won’t feel whole until you are. When we focus on our outward behaviors, we miss working on aligning our hearts with God. It’s either the narrow one that leads to life, or the broad one that leads to destruction.  It is amazing how just reading the Bible for yourself, praying for the Holy Spirit’s guidance and understanding, clears up so many misconceptions and answers so many questions.  It comes down to the WHY, not the what. …but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.  Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God.   (Romans 5:8-9). Keeping your eyes on Jesus is another way of saying abide in Him. Heaven Is Here. On the third day, Jesus was raised to life, to a new eternal body. (“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. My heart struggles to believe the promises of Christ and my guess it’s a struggle for all of us. Examining yourself to see if you are in the faith is an act of obedience!  It is part of “working out your salvation with fear and trembling” (Philippians 2:12).  So here’s what I want to you to do.  It doesn’t matter about the past.  Are you trusting in Jesus for salvation, right now?  Do you have peace in your heart that you are saved, right now?  If you heard that glorious call home, right now, do you know you would be taken to the place Jesus has prepared for you?  If you have momentary doubt, because I have shaken you in spirit, but then find that you are in the faith, that is “passing the test”.  If you get a gnawing feeling in the pit of your stomach, your mouth goes dry, and you are filled with fear, that’s not passing the test. Pray With Me:  Jesus, I ask that You would open my eyes to see spiritual realities today.  I understand the truths of heaven, hell, and the spiritual realm in my mind, but let me know and understand it in my heart. When you say Jesus is Lord, this means you believe He is God and as your Creator, He deserves to be Lord of your life. The Boy with an Evil Spirit … 23 “If You can?” echoed Jesus. Jesus is a gentleman; He didn’t force his way inside my life. ), this has not always been the case.  Perhaps you can relate!  As much as I was tempted to spin the hamster wheel one more (or many more) time, I honestly didn’t know if I had that “luxury” anymore. [G D Em C B A Bm] Chords for I Believe, Help My Unbelief (New Gospel Song) with capo transposer, play along with guitar, piano, ukulele & mandolin. But help me in my unbelief. It doesn’t take any action. I knew I desperately wanted to be saved. It was as clear as day, like a light turning on. No other gate. It means stopping striving. In Mark 9:24 the father cries out, “I believe; help my unbelief!” This is a great prayer. ALL my heart. Imagine that you are a compass.  It is not-quite-there-yet. EHSS - I Believe, Help Thou My Unbelief” is from our new CD ”Something Beautiful" Our Favorite Songs of Bill & Gloria Gaither.  Helpless, dependent. All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags. I finally wondered, DO I have saving faith? My loves, we have no control.  We are completely, utterly, totally, helplessly dependent upon Jesus for salvation.  No amount of suffering, trials, tribulation, or even a martyr’s death, would make us worthy! Neuter diminutive of pais; a childling, i.e., an infant, or a half-grown boy or girl; figuratively, an immature Christian. Personal / Possessive Pronoun - Genitive 1st Person Singular.  Like little children, we have faith that our Father will take care of us (and our heavenly Father does so perfectly).  To make any kind of progress, I had to decide to open the door and let him in…  All the way. In the past I was required to write a “testimony” to share with others.  This was always a great struggle for me.  Not only did I (and do I) hate public speaking, it was always a chore to think of what to write.  As far as I was concerned, Jesus hadn’t done anything spectacular in my life.  I didn’t come from a background of abuse, addiction, new age, witchcraft, or anything that made “an exciting testimony”.  So I would look up examples.  I would end up with this: “I grew up in a Christian home.  I asked Jesus into my heart at the age of 4, at a summer backyard club.  I was terrified by the booklet which showed unbelievers clawing and screaming in the fires of hell!  I want to go to heaven!  I have never NOT believed in God and the Bible, so I don’t even know what that would be like.  My family goes to church.  We are pretty typical “North American Christians”.  So… I guess that’s that.”, “Uhhhh…. I did not used to “pass the test”.  When I truly examined myself I knew deep down that something was wrong.  I didn’t want to die because I wasn’t sure where I would go.  What about you?  In your heart of hearts do you have peace or dread?   Test yourself before God, right now!  Approach Him in prayer with a seeking heart. Credit; by implication, to entrust. Despite how much I wanted salvation, it still eluded me. When I cried out, Here Am I, send me!  He has sent me, He is using me.  All glory to Jesus.  When you cry out – “Here am I, send me!” – He will!  Keep asking. I had a loving, albeit emotionally distant, earthly father and didn’t struggle with the concept of God’s grace. I was left with two choices (as we always are when faced with the Holy Spirit nudging us). I was struggling with letting go of control. Did I read the Bible because I loved God and wanted to hear from Him, or because I wanted to tick off all the chapters and books and feel good about having read the whole Bible?  Salvation is described as being “born-again”. My sweet friend, have you internalized that God’s love for you, unlike human love, is truly unconditional – independent of what you do or do not do?  If not, please consider reading I Have Loved You With an Everlasting Love.  We are only able to love God because He loved us first (1 John 4:19). There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death. What I struggled with was internalizing the truth of Christianity in my heart. To cry aloud, shriek. And yet it eludes me. Pray With Me:  Jesus, I keep trying to heave my filthy rags at what You have already done for me on the cross.  Oh, please Jesus, open my heart to understand what You truly meant when You said – “It is Finished”! Jesus washed away my sin, this I do believe.  ALL my heart. Salvation is a change in legal standing before God – from “guilty” to “not guilty”. I was personally confident in the “facts” of Christianity, in my head. This allows us to be declared innocent and sin-free in God’s Eyes – the debt we owed for our crimes is paid.  We don’t have to SAY or DO anything. When we pray, “I believe, help my unbelief,” he will.  I remembered praying as a teenager for a boyfriend/spouse – for someone who was a Christian, but certainly and definitely not a missionary or a pastor.   Oh please, I prayed, don’t ask me to be a missionary.  I began by reading the gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John).  At this point, I hadn’t really read my Bible (or attended church) in years. Remember when I said that when I examined my life, I saw no “fruit of the Spirit”?  I struggled with depression and anger.  I had no joy or peace.  I wasn’t particularly loving.  I held these up, and decided I wanted to force these fruits in myself.  So I went about with checklists and Bible studies on the fruit.  I purchased some tzitzit (the tassles Jewish men hung on their clothing) to wear as bracelets to remind me to choose goodness and holiness.  I wrote on my arms and hands to desperately try to curb my angry outbursts at my then-toddlers.  I plastered verses on my mirrors and in my cupboards.  I started fasting regularly.  I tossed out things that weren’t “true, right, pure, good, or lovely”.  I stopped celebrating secular holidays and learned about the Feasts of the Lord. I kept searching and reading articles about salvation by “faith alone”.  Sometimes we must ask, and ask, and ask, and ask… Like the persistent widow (Luke 18:1-8). Then, why didn’t my head and heart agree?Â.  I believe the enemy led me there in my weakness, attempting to lead me down the same path he had led this other man. Lord I Believe, Help My Unbelief by Mike Crawford and His Secret Siblings, released 15 August 2009 Lord I Believe, Help My Unbelief! True salvation results in a changed life. The, the definite article. I Belong To God. In your head I’m sure you know the steps and agree with them.  But in your heart… Do you want to be worthy, to show you are worthy?  Were you raised in a strict home, or a religious home, where you had to prove your worth? You realize you are lost, and you want to be found. Do your head and heart agree?  Has your belief in Jesus changed you, from the inside out?  Are you being transformed into Christlikeness?  Are you abiding in Christ?  Examine your own heart, not anyone else’s.  Other people’s hearts are between them and God.
