“Help my Unbelief”

Pastor Donald Reigstad, Lincoln Free Evangelical Church


It sounded easy enough. My friend said he knocked his off in an afternoon. So I went for it. Remember, I’m a preacher - fairly handy but still far from a “handy-man”. I was tackling the installation of an engineered wood floor in several rooms of our new house. My biggest fear was ending up with an expensive floor that didn’t look like one. It wasn’t as easy as I first was led to believe. Still, easy enough for me to do well. More importantly, my wife was pleased.

Jesus’ words in John 14:1 may sound easier than they are. “Don’t let your hearts be troubled.” It may have sounded easy enough but remember: Jesus was a “hunted man” and his disciples were “guilty by association.” So for us. It’s not easy to “chill out” these days. With so much trouble, far away as well as at home, it is challenging for any who dare not “hide their heads in the sand.”

The answer is not as easy as it sounds either. “Believe in God; believe also in me (Jesus).” I find myself praying, “Lord, I believe, help my unbelief.”
