And he did not do many mighty works there, because of their unbelief. —Matthew 13:58

 And Peter answered him, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.”  He said, “Come.” So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, “Lord, save me.” Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” —Matthew 14:28-31

             Unbelief will hinder many of His mighty works from being done. Fear and doubt as we take part in His Works decreases our successful completion in His works. Out of our Love for our Lord and people (Matthew 22:37-40) we desire to be obedient to Him. He has called us and created us for good works (Ephesians 2:10). He has prepared these works beforehand that we should walk in them. So what are the works He has for you? Through unbelief they will not be done. Through fear and doubt you will not accomplish what He desires. So why are you not believing Him? Why are you fearing and doubting Him? Be faithful to Him and see Him work His works in and through you for His glory and the benefit of others!

            If He is telling you to go… then go. If He is telling you to come… then come. If He is telling you to do something… then do it.   If He is telling you not to do something… then don’t do it. Whatever it is He would have of you… obey Him out of your love for Him and people. Oh, that this, my Father, may be so by the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son Jesus. So be it!
