Friday 4th of August

 “A prophet is only despised in his own country.”

Matthew 13:54-58

How is our faith in Jesus? Do we recognise his wisdom, power, and authority? The people in Jesus’s hometown struggled to recognise him as anything but “the carpenter’s son.” Their lack of faith prevented them from seeing who he was and prevented Jesus from working any miracles there. In our lives, Jesus desires to work miracles, however, we need to allow him to act in our lives. Faith opens the door to Jesus.

We pray today, Lord, that you might increase our faith in you. Help us to rely not on our feelings or what we see but, on your Word, and promises.
