Matthew 13:58 And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.
Is there something you need or maybe want? Take a look at Peter in Matthew 14 he just wanted to walk on the water like Jesus, was it necessary? No. But, God knew it would increase His faith, what do you think God could want to give you that would also increase your faith? For me years ago it was a frozen pizza. Then we look at verse 31 in chapter 14 and we see that Peter took his eyes off Jesus and started looking at his immediate circumstances and he started to sink. Jesus response was to grab him and to say, “Oh you of little faith, why did you doubt?” What is He saying that to you about? Is there something just around the corner that you are about to give up on? Ask God for a verse when you have your devotions and then cling to that verse every time you start to doubt.
Somehow I feel as if we are missing out on God doing mighty works in our lives and that really saddens me! I don’t want to miss out and I am sure you don’t either! The people that saw Jesus walking down the street knew if they could just touch the hem of his clothes they believed they would be healed. What they didn’t know was that they didn’t even have to touch him it was their belief in Him and His ability to heal that healed them.
If God hasn’t somehow told you “no”, then believe for your answer until He moves in your situation or tells you “no”. Ask Him for a verse to cling to during your moments of doubt and when you lack the faith you need today ask like the Father of the child that needed healing in Mark 9 “I believe, help my unbelief!”
Matthew 18:19 If two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father who is in heaven. I am praying for you today that your faith will increase in whatever it is that you need or desire and that God will bless you beyond measure, that He will bind Satan in any area He is working on in your life and that God will have complete victory in every area you surrender to Him today. I am praying too that God will give you faith beyond measure and that He will do mighty things in your life. I ask that you would please pray the same for me today as well!
