In most healing testimonies in the Gospels, it is reported that many, and sometimes all, were healed. But it is also recorded that in some places even Jesus could do no mighty works because of their unbelief - Matthew 13:58. The New Testament records of the disciples that, though they put their faith in Jesus, first in one need or crisis, then in another, their faith was punctuated by unbelief. Even at the Last Supper, Jesus said to them, "Do you now believe?"
Every one of us who considers himself to be the Lord's disciple must recognise the unbelief and hardness that assails our heart in each new situation, each new difficulty, and must ask God for a renewing and growth of our faith. Our circumstances CAN be changed; the Word of God CANNOT fail! The Bible says we live by faith. Paul wrote: 'The life I live, I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me' (Galatians 2:20). When you find yourself in situations where you doubt your faith, remember the simple cry found in Mark 9:24, 'Lord I believe, help my unbelief.'
