Day 8: DIS the Word


Oh the power of three letters~

D I S

The power to change

Agree to DISagree

Approved to DISapproved

Obedience to DISobedience

Interested to DISinterested

Order to DISorder

Advantage to DISadvantage

"DIS"~

expressing negation.

What are you "DIS"ing?

When we add that prefix to any word we miss out

because what we really are plagued with is

DISbelief:

the inability or refusal to accept that something is true or real

And

we don't have something that we really believe in that is reliable, true, or real.

Who, what, where or when are you believing in?

The father approaches Jesus to heal his son

"If you can?" rolls off his tongue.

DISbelief

"If I can?” said Jesus.

Then Jesus responds with,

“Everything is possible for one who believes.”

Belief: trust, faith, or confidence in someone or something.

And then...

Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed,

“I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!” Mark 9

The father Knows about Jesus and that He could heal his child, but

"If you can" rolls off his tongue.

The father then

Receives Jesus

and

Believes in Him

and now asks Jesus to really help him.

Have you ever questioned Jesus

whether He can or will do what He said He would do?

"If you can"

has rolled of my tongue numerous times.

And then

in the midst of my disbelief

Jesus

responds back with

"If I can?"

because

He hears

He sees

and

wants to

because

He Can.

Is Jesus enough to take away the DIS from your belief?

If Jesus Can turn water into wine

If Jesus Can walk on water

If Jesus Can heal the blind man....

But do you believe it.

If Jesus Can take away your anxieties

If Jesus Can forgive the unforgivable

If Jesus Can love the unlovable

If Jesus Can give you eternal life

IF Jesus CAN

Can

you

Believe Him?

Let's fast today from the weight of

DIS

By

Receiving and Believing in the One

Who Can

because

“Everything is possible for one who believes.”
