He was amazed at their lack of faith. Mark 6:6
Every person has some faith of some sort in some thing. All faith is, is believing in something that one cannot directly see.
People have faith every day that when they sit down on a chair that it will hold them. They have faith that the other drivers will stay in their own lane. They have faith that their boss will pay them correctly on pay day.
Faith is nothing new to people, but only what their faith is in.
Jesus had went back to His hometown of Bethlehem. While there He could only do a few miracles and healings because the people lacked faith in Him.
Every where one goes there are people who are desiring some type of miracle in their lives. People want to see great and sudden changes in their own health or in some other area of their life. While they hope for something, it is not hope and faith in God.
This problem often occurs inside the church. Many believers lack faith in God for every area of their life. They may have great faith for God to bring about a healing, but do not trust Him with their finances, not giving the full tithe.
God is always wanting to work in the lives of people in great and miraculous ways. Yet many refuse to have full faith in Him alone, but rather trust themselves or in other things or people.
If a believer can have faith that Jesus has forgiven him and will save him, he can have faith that God can do other miracles in his life as needed. Either God is a God of His word or He is not God at all.
God has already given you a measure of faith. Most likely there is an area in your life that you need help or a miracle in. Do not put your trust in yourself, people, things or ways of this world, but have faith in God. He has already promised to meet all of your needs.
There is nothing too big or too small that God cannot do in your life. Do not allow yourself to be like the people of Bethlehem and lack faith in Him. Allow God to do miracles in and through you.
See what God is willing and can do when you have faith in Him.
Today I pray that you will know God’s great power in your life; that you will put all of your faith in God; that you will allow God to work in your life; and that God will be able to do miracles in your life.
