5, And He [Jesus] 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.
10 When Jesus heard it, He marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.
So we see here that God marvels both at our exercise of faith and unbelief. The choice is ours whether to make God marvel this way or that way.
In the first Scripture, Jesus marvelled at the unbelief of the people of His hometown. They’ve heard and seen all the mighty miracles He had performed and also the incredible wisdom He displayed everywhere He went; yet, instead of believing in Him and claiming their own portion of the miracle, they decided to despise Him and were offended in Him. Bible tells us Jesus marvelled at their unbelief.
The second scripture tells us of how Jesus wanted to go to the house of the Centurion, the Roman Army Officer to pray for his beloved servant who was seriously ill. The Centurion sent message to Jesus not to come, but to just speak the word and his servant would be healed. Jesus again marvelled, but this time at the great faith of the Centurion; and his servant was healed immediately.
The question is this: are we going to make Jesus/God marvel at our unbelief or faith?
God’s choice is obvious. He wants to marvel at our faith rather than our unbelief.
Faith is a magnet that pulls all the good things God has in the realms of the spirit to us in the physical. Dare walk in unflinching faith in God and you’ll not be disappointed, no matter how long it takes.
God bless us all. Amen
