Jesus said, all things are possible
“If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” Immediately the father of the child cried out with tears, “Lord, I believe. Help my unbelief!” (Mark 9:23-24)
A dad brought his son to Jesus believing that He had the power to deliver him from a tormenting impure spirit. But while attempting to exercise faith, he was aware that doubt existed alongside. He worried that his faith might be too weak to get the job done. Feeling helpless he cried out in tears, “Lord, I believe. Help my unbelief!”
Jesus responded to the man’s request, ignoring his confession of unbelief. He cast the spirit out and ordered it never to come back. Miraculously, the boy returned to normal.
Jesus answered the man’s request and at the same time developed his faith. His son was restored and his own faith grew. In the process of exercising the amount of faith he possessed, he learned to believe Jesus more.
And as Jesus said, “…all things are possible to him who believes.”
