[Jesus] came to His hometown and began teaching them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished, and said, “Where did this man get this wisdom and these miraculous powers? Is not this the carpenter’s son?”…And He did not do many miracles there because of their unbelief. (Matthew 13:54-55, 58, NASB)
Jesus, how often have You longed to do wonderful things among us,
but You were not able because of our unbelief?
How often have we, Your own people,
hindered You by our lack of faith?
Lord, what wonderful works would You do in my life
if I were only willing to trust You more simply and constantly,
in the face of each concern?
Jesus, You are my Lord.
You are Messiah.
You are Mighty God.
You are my Savior,
Help me to trust You step-by-step.
Work Your beautiful, loving, perfect will in me.
Faith, not reason,
is God’s chosen pathway to
relationship with Himself.
He is not seeking people
smart enough to perceive Him.
He is seeking people
humble enough to trust Him.
