“And He did not many might works there because of their unbelief.” Matthew 13:58
The town was Nazareth, the place where Jesus had grown up. But, Nazareth was not impressed. They had hard hearts towards Jesus, instead of embracing Him as the Savior sent from God. Inspired Scripture makes it a point to note that because of their unbelief, the activity of Christ there was minimal.
Do you want that to be said of you? Does Christ ever limit His work among us because of our unbelief? Unbelief allows perception, feeling and the physical vision of things to trump the revelation of God in His word. Too often, we “lean into” our unbelieving feelings or perceptions. God doesn't “feel” really great to me today, so I am slow to believe. Faith “leans into” the word of God regardless of the present feeling.
Confess your unbelief to God. Pray this Biblical prayer, “Lord, I believe. Help thou, mine unbelief.” Resolve to not allow unbelieving thoughts to run unchecked in your heart and mind. Fill your mind with true thoughts from the Scriptures and pray for grace to believe them. Jesus honors and responds to faith.
