Amazing Faith

“He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them. And he was amazed at their lack of faith.”
Mark 6: 5-6 (NIV)

This passage has always challenged me. Imagine Jesus could not do miracles in His own home town. Couldn’t is a strong word. Obviously in His own power, Jesus could have done any miracle He chose to, but that is not the way God wants it to work. Our Father wants us to join Him in His work in this world. It is our faith and recognition of His love that works in tandem with His power. And these are people that should have known that Jesus was the Son of God. It was His own home town. And like them, those of us who have known Jesus for so long, how many times have we taken Him for granted? How many times have we doubted His power? It was so bad that Jesus was amazed at their lack of faith. Their unbelief shocked Him. Oh, that our faith would never cause surprise to the heart of God. Today, might we consider our life. Let us examine our heart and ask God to birth in us a fresh wind, a new fire and an amazing faith.

Father, forgive me for my unbelief. Forgive me for my doubt. Forgive me for taking You for granted. Today birth in me a fresh wind, a new fire and an amazing faith in You.
