Nothing stops the touch of Jesus in our lives like unbelief. Nothing brings the move and presence of God, as does belief. The slow, lethargic, stumbling, unchanging person is somewhere surrounded by unbelief. The significant power of God does not, and will not, flow in the presence of unbelief. Trust stops, confidence is shaken, reliance is broken, faith turns to doubt, victory is stolen, hope becomes depression, light becomes dark, and peace becomes despair because of unbelief.
We know the author of unbelief by the fruit. Unbelief brings confusion. Confusion is the final trick of the enemy. It is a result of unbelief. What we often call problems, difficulties, situations, or issues are all things that are generally rooted in unbelief, unbelief that has manifested into confusion.
Confusion manifested leaves us useless and incapable. It is the sin of simply not believing that the Father will do what He said He would do. That’s serious!
A life of belief demands faith to believe two principles:
1. God is God of the Possible, which is unbelief.
2. God is God of the Impossible, which is Faith.
“Lord, I believe; help my unbelief… For with God nothing will be impossible.” Jesus
