The Roots of Unbelief

by | Jun 10, 2010 | Bible Study

(Part 1)

As a believer, how is your heart toward God? Of course, you love Him, but how persuaded are you that He loves you and desires to bless you? His Word reveals the truths that will help you guard your heart against doubt and unbelief, so that you may fully enter in to all that He has for you through Christ Jesus!



READ: Rom. 10:10; Eph. 2:6; Heb. 3:12; Heb. 4:12; Heb. 10:14; 1 Pet. 2:9.
HEART ISSUE: Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to you any unbelief that has crept into your spirit and corroded your faith. Repent and ask the Lord to remove any doubts and restore your faith.
PRAYER FOCUS: Father, I thank You that You are not only helping me to guard my heart against doubt and unbelief, but You are giving me fresh hope—and with it, answers to my prayers! In Jesus’ name, amen.

(Part 2)

You have been converted as a Christian. But are you allowing the Lord to continually convert your heart so that you are growing and maturing in Him? God will work on your heart through His Word and transform you into His image and likeness.

READ: Prov. 23:7; Matt. 5:8; Matt. 10:30; 1 Tim. 6:20; 1 John 1:3; 1 John 4:19-21.
HEART ISSUE: Allow God to cleanse your heart of any impurities by bringing to mind people you need to forgive.
PRAYER FOCUS: Father, thank You for cleansing me of all impurities and darkness. Thank You for restoring me to You and Your likeness in my heart. Heal any unbelief I may be carrying, and open me up to the miracles and blessings You will bring into my life. In Jesus’ name, amen.
