DAILY DEVOTIONAL: WHERE IS YOUR FAITH?
TOPIC: WHERE IS YOUR FAITH?
Memorise: And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching. Mark 6:6 KJV
Read: Mark 6:1-6 1 And he went out from thence, and came into his own country; and his disciples follow him. 2 And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing [him] were astonished, saying, From whence hath this [man] these things? and what wisdom [is] this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands? 3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him. 4 But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house. 5 And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed [them]. 6 And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching.
Several forces on earth can stop a man from fulfilling destiny. One of such forces is unbelief. If your faith is not in God, life will become so funny and frustrating. God didn’t send you to the world to suffer and die. He made all the blessings available ever before you were made. Therefore there’s nothing about you that was not made before you were created. You only need to believe God for the manifestations of your portion and your life will never remain the same again.
You need God more than ever before. Disappointment looms each time your heart goes after the help that comes from a man. You can’t trust the natural man and not fail but with God your life will shine forth like stars in the firmament. Jesus in our text this morning couldn’t do much among the people because of the unbelief. Are you missing your blessings because your heart is not focused on God? Take a turn this morning and begin to love God specially. Let your heart be fixed on him with a firm grip on His written and spoken words. He’s not a man that would lie neither will he say a thing a not make it good. The reason you have suffer this long on same prayer point could be faithlessness. Let God have His way in your life and before you know it, you will be singing a new song.
Pray with me: Father, please help me to grow in faith and to remain strong through your word. I rebuke every spirit of faithlessness in my life in Jesus’ mighty name.
