Have your ever wondered how God feels about our faith? Faith in what He promises in His Word? Faith in Him?
On night, not too long ago, I was feeling really uneasy about something and I wasn’t sure why. So I asked God to help me understand – and He did.
God encouraged me to open the the Bible to Mark, chapter 6. It’s about when Jesus returned with his disciples to Nazareth, his hometown and was rejected.
God specifically showed me these two versus – Mark 6:5,6 (NIV) – “He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them. He was amazed at their lack of faith.“
It says, “He could not” not would not or didn’t do or even chose not to. No, it specifically says,”He could not do any miracles there,” and it was because of their lack of faith in Him.
In the New Living Translation Mark 6:5,6 reads, “And because of their unbelief, he couldn’t do any miracles among them except to place his hands on a few sick people and heal them. And he was amazed at their unbelief.”
This absolutely blew me away. I never paid attention to these versus before.
Next, God showed me that I was worrying about someone I care about. He told me that He sees that as a lack of faith. I asked Him to forgive me, and then I let go and let Him completely have the situation.
The uneasiness I was feeling went away immediately. And I am already seeing changes for the better, praise the Lord!
Our having faith is definitely important to God.
May God Bless You,
