Text for Today: Matt. 6:1-6 “: “Now He could do no mighty work there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them.” (vs. 5)
It is no advantage to be near the light if the eyes are closed, because your presence there is just a waste of time. That is the best way to describe those who have access to the word of faith and anointed servants of God, yet do not believe them.
Unbelief doesn’t stop God, it doesn’t hinder Him. Unbelief doesn’t do nothing but condemns the unbeliever.
The unbelief will send the unbeliever to Hell; it will also rob him of every blessing God promised to him, but it doesn’t hinder God from going right on with the believer. Everywhere Jesus went He displayed the power of God; healing the sick, casting out demons, and performing many other miracles.
Yet, when He went to His hometown of Nazareth, He “could do not mighty work there…” Instead of multitudes, only a few were healed. There was an atmosphere of unbelief that limited the power of God.
What happened in Nazareth did not affect the vision of Jesus in any way; it was those who looked down on Him who missed their portions. Many of them who would have been healed, delivered, lifted and empowered died with their afflictions because they saw Jesus only as the son of a carpenter, not as the Saviour of the world.
The same is true today. Unbelief manifests in various ways and limits the church from experiencing the fullness of the Holy Spirit’s power. Beloved, the value you place on a servant of God determines what flows into your life through him from God.
You are a Champion!
Further Study: Luke 4:16-30.
- Father, I thank you for your power which is at work in my life.
- I cast out every spirit of unbelief from my life.
- I shall not do anything that will hinder the flow of God’s power.
- Lord, make the remaining days of this year memorable for me.
