MIGHTY MIRACLES REQUIRE FAITH
And He could there do no mighty work, save that He laid His hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them. And He marvelled because of their unbelief. (Mark 6:5-6)
“The spirit of faith knocks a hole from the natural to the supernatural.” –Mark Hankins
We know God is able to do all things. Nothing is impossible with God! People say, “It’s up to God. If God wants to do it, God can do anything. He’s a sovereign God.” Mark 6:5 says, “And He could there do no mighty work.” If God can do anything anytime He wants to, why didn’t Jesus do it right there in His own hometown? Can you imagine Jesus being frustrated because He wanted to do a mighty work, but He couldn’t? The original Greek implies that He tried, but He couldn’t.
What is a mighty work? It is a demonstration of His power and His glory. I believe Jesus wanted to do some mighty Jubilee miracles — some mighty demonstrations of His power — but because of unbelief, He couldn’t do any mighty work. I wonder what He would say about us today?
Confession: I do not lack for faith. God is able to do all things. I believe that nothing is impossible with God. I believe that miracles–mighty works–demonstrations of His power — are manifesting in my life! (Mark 9:23)
