There is only one time in the entire Bible where anyone admits to unbelief. In Mark 9, the crowd was arguing because a father had brought his son with an unclean spirit to the disciples to cast it out, and they could not. The father then brought his son to Jesus.
After describing to Jesus what had taken place, the father pleads with Jesus to cast out the evil spirit. Let’s look at the father’s request; “And it has often cast him into fire and into water, to destroy him. But if You can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.”” (9:22). The problem was not whether Jesus could deal with the unclean spirit, the problem was with the faith of the father. So, Jesus replies to the father with, “‘If You can!’ All things are possible for one who believes.”
This is where God calls each of us to be honest with Him about our faith and how real it is. This father takes inventory of his faith and realizes there was a serious deficiency in his heart. “Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, “I believe; help my unbelief!”” (9:24).
Are you willing to examine your faith and ask the Lord to help those areas where you lack faith? In this case, Jesus immediately takes action to answer the request. There may be changes God wants to make in your life or circumstances, but He is waiting for you to admit where you need help.
