since Grace permits...

“From such turn away.”

My heart is still burdened by the prevalence of unbelief in professing believers. I do not know what the main challenge is, the cause of the problem, but we could be called ‘those of little faith’. Like peter, fearing to come out to the waters, Matthew 14v31. Like the three who were called to the garden by the lord, “let us keep watch and pray” Matthew 26v36-46 yet they snored with no remorse. “Thou sleepest?”

Perhaps, we are bearers of that Laodicean trait, of being lukewarm; neither hot nor cold, undesirable enough and bound to be spewed out of the Lord’s mouth. I still do not know the cause of being  Cowards in the Faith. The Apostle Paul in his last letter to Timothy, he says a lot about the end-times; that there will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boasters, proud, disobedient to parents, false accusers, despisers of those that are good, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God. But should such traits be seen within the church? Displayed by apostates maybe, but not by true believers. “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof, from such turn away.”

I humbly request that you pray dear reader, for every single gathering of believers, our dear small, close-knit local assemblies spread throughout Botswana, for those who break bread every Lord’s day, those looking into taking a step of baptism and those still under the curse of sin. Pray for revelation, revival and a purging of our souls, that each humble heart appears before the Throne of Grace in all glory, having not denied the power within them, that enables them to live godly lives.

  1. 23“If You can?” echoed Jesus. “All things are possible to him who believes!” 24Immediately the boy’s father cried out, “I do believe; help my unbelief!” 25When Jesus saw that a crowd had come running, He rebuked the unclean spirit. “You deaf and mute spirit,” He said, “I command you to come out and never enter him again.”…

    Could this be the right prayer to pray? Lord help me with my unbelief for I believe? For most of the times we want to believe but the flesh overcomes us and we start beating ourselves up. But then there are those who struggle with unbelief and have given themselves unto the worldly things, for those we need prayers for them and then on recovery lead them in the help me with my unbelief prayer. My thougths

    1. It is perhaps, or rather a matter of fact that this problem of faithlessness is caused by giving our affections to the world, laughing with it, joking with it, listening to the counsel of it, then later internalizing its precepts so much that the Christian identity is distorted.
      “I DO BELIEVE LORD! HELP MY UNBELIEF!”

      It is surely a good prayer to pray, heartfelt and sincere. Thank you brother. May we pray for others slacking in this regard.
