“What do you mean, ‘If I can’?” Jesus asked. “Anything is possible if a person believes.” Mark 9:23 NLT
When Jesus came down from the Mount of Transfiguration with Peter, James, and John, there was a group of people gathered around the remaining disciples. A father had asked for healing for his son, but the disciples were not able to heal the boy. The father sees Jesus and runs to Him, asking if Jesus could heal his son. This is where our verse today comes in. IF? Jesus says anything is possible if a person believes. The father responds that he believes, but please help his unbelief. Where do we stand in our belief? Do we believe, but there is a part of us that questions if God can do a particular thing we are asking?
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. Hebrews 11:6 NIV
