Matthew 13:58 - And He did not do many deeds of power there, because of
their unbelief.

Unbelief is a force. It is the activity of the powers of darkness that
stand before men - to prevent them from walking into the glorious
benefits of the working of God's mighty power. We may think of doubt and
unbelief as fearful thoughts, or even as the logical conclusions to
impossible situations. But in reality unbelief is anti-faith. Unbelief
is not something that finds its origins in the mind of men's logical
conclusions; unbelief is the forces of hell that have come out to fight
against God. One of the first things observed about the works of Satan
was how he sowed doubt and unbelief in the heart of Eve. Satan first
questioned what God said in such a way as to create a suspicion and
doubt in Eve's thinking. Ultimately Satan's seeds of suspicion became
accusations and statements of slander against God (Genesis 3:1-5). It
was then Satan's lies and deception - that had created the doubt and
unbelief - turned into treason (Genesis 3:6; 1 Timothy 2:14).

We must deal with the unbelief that we face for what it is: demon power!
When we recognize that everything concerning the kingdom of God is
advanced by the operation of faith, it is little wonder why Satan fights
so hard against it. Because of faith, miracles take place and reveal the
mighty power of God (Galatians 3:2-5). Because of faith, devils go out
of those who are possessed by them.Through faith, all of the great
exploits take place that reveal the mighty power of God. Through faith
the mouths of lions are stopped, the violence of fire is quenched,
kingdoms are subdued, the armies of the aliens are put to flight,
mountains made into plains, valleys are filled, the desert blossoms like
a rose, and the captives are set free! (Hebrews 11:29-35). Let us begin
to deal with doubt and unbelief like the enemies of the truth that they
are. Let us come out against them by the Spirit of the Lord - and by the
anointing destroy their yoke from off of us!
