Devotion our The Lack of Faith 

Devotional : The Lack of Faith ROBS US OF HIS POWER

Today is the day that someone needs to get hold of the truth that “The Just Shall Live By Faith!”

THE LACK OF FAITH


Deut  32:19-21
"And when the LORD saw it, he abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters. And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith."

The greatest hindrance in the Christian life is “no faith.”  This was the problem with Israel and they provoked the Lord to anger because of their unbelief.

That leads us to question: Is it possible to have saving faith and stop there?  I believe this passage teaches this.  They had enough faith to get them out of Egypt but not enough faith to get them into Canaan.  This is like a believer walking after the flesh.  He is out of fellowship with God and in fellowship with the world.  Let’s notice some important things that results from a lack of faith---

THE LACK OF FAITH PRODUCES FEAR

Mark 4:40-41
"And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?  And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?"

In this verse fear is associated with “no faith.”  Jesus asks, “how is it that ye have no faith?”  Jesus did not tell them that they had no courage.  Fear is “a distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc., whether the threat is real or imagined; it is the feeling or condition of being afraid.” ---Webster.

THE LACK OF FAITH CAUSES HUMAN REASONING

The reasoning of the flesh measures the problem (that which we fear) over against our own ability to handle the situation.  Someone has said that fear is confidence in the enemy.  When the children of Israel were set to go into the Promised Land they measured themselves against the giants in the land.  They believed the unbelieving spies and paid a price.  God expects us to believe in Him and what He says. Israel paid a great price for their unbelief, i.e., they wandered in the wilderness.  Caleb and Joshua were the only two of the twelve spies who had faith that God had given them the land.  When they finally entered the land, Caleb asks for the mountain where the giants were and he proved that with the blessings of the Lord the giants could be defeated.  The disciples who were in the boat with Jesus were terrified of the prospects of going down to a watery grave.  Jesus calmed the sea and said to them “how is it that ye have no faith?”  Then they turned from their fear of drowning to a fear of Christ who could do such a thing.  The lack of faith causes human reasonings.

THE LACK OF FAITH ROBS US OF HIS POWER

Matthew 17:19-20
"Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?  And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you."

WHEN A MIRACLE IS WROUGHT FAITH IS ALWAYS THERE TO BELIEVE AND RECEIVE IT

If faith is not there to receive the thing asked for it will not take place.  Faith is an amazing attribute.  It finds God’s promises and believes them.

John 11:41-44
"Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.  And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.  And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.  And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go."

Jesus only had to speak the word and the Miracle was preformed.  Jesus works miracle with His Word.  We need to walk by faith and never doubt.  But if you operate like I do, my flesh constantly gets in the way.  Look past your flesh today and see what Jesus wants to do for you.
