|NASB||Matthew 13:58 And He did not do many miracles there because of their unbelief.|
|Matthew 13:58 And He did not do many miracles there [in Nazareth] because of their unbelief.|
|Subject: Why require faith to perform miracles?|
Bible Note: Jesus being God was sovereign and did many miracles without faith of others being involved. There are many examples of this in the gospels one being Luke 7:11-16. This passage tells of the raising of the widow’s son, no mention is made of faith by anyone and the son was dead. Notice in Jesus’s instructions to the 12 before he sent them out to heal and cast out demons Matt 10:1-14 he gave no requirement of faith.
I'm not trying be a wise guy, but I have seen God perform and do many miracles where there was no faith. Just as I have seen nothing apparent happen where there was much faith.
Let’s not put God in a box He can and will do as He pleases whether we have faith or not. Although we do know faith is required to please Him Hebrews 11:6.
