Are you holding Jesus back from performing miracles? The people of his home town did!
See Mark 6:1-6:
Jesus left there and went to his hometown, accompanied by his disciples. When the Sabbath came, he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were amazed.
"Where did this man get these things?" they asked. "What's this wisdom that has been given him, that he even does miracles! Isn't this the carpenter? Isn't this Mary's son and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas and Simon? Aren't his sisters here with us?" And they took offense at him.
Jesus said to them, "Only in his hometown, among his relatives and in his own house is a prophet without honor." 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.
Jesus was amazed at their lack of faith, and he could not do any miracles there. The text says "could not," not "would not." We don't have to have a huge, unwavering faith either. The Bible tells us that we simple need a small, honest faith. Jesus says in Matthew 17:20, "I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."
Another time (in Mark 9) a man asks Jesus to heal his son, if Jesus can. Mark 9:23 continues, " "'If you can'?" said Jesus. "Everything is possible for him who believes." Immediately the boy's father exclaimed, "I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!" " Jesus healed that boy.
Today let's look to Jesus and say, "I do believe! Help me overcome my unbelief!" Look for any areas in your life that need renewed faith, and open the door to His miracles.
