Faith isn't always a perfect faith, but it always is a saving faith.
Once you have faith in God, that doesn't mean that life becomes perfect, or that you have ownership of a genie that can grant wishes. There are so many things of God that I don't understand, and will never understand, but I have faith that God is truth and His promises are steadfast. "Who can fathom the Spirit of the Lord?"- Isaiah 40:13a "Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!”- Luke 1:45 NIV
There is a story in the Bible of a man who says to Jesus, "I believe; help my unbelief!" What he meant, is that we all have moments of doubt, through fear, guilt, or listening to what the world says. But if you have faith in Him, that is enough, He will help you GROW faith.
And that is enough for me. "And Jesus asked his father, "How long has this been happening to him?" And he said, "From childhood. And it has often cast him into fire and into water, to destroy him. But if you can do anything, have compassion on us and help us." And Jesus said to him, "'If you can'! All things are possible for one who believes." Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, "I believe; help my unbelief!" And when Jesus saw that a crowd came running together, he rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, "You mute and deaf spirit, I command you, come out of him and never enter him again." And after crying out and convulsing him terribly, it came out, and the boy was like a corpse, so that most of them said, "He is dead." But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him up, and he arose. And when he had entered the house, his disciples asked him privately, "Why could we not cast it out?" And he said to them, "This kind cannot be driven out by anything but prayer." Mark 9:14-29 ESV
