unbelief

I said in a sermon one time that unbelief is one of the slickest things in the world. Unbelief always says, “Somewhere else, but not here; some other time, but not now; some other people, but not us.” That’s unbelief. We fight for the miracles of the Old Testament, but won’t believe in a miracle happening today. We believe in miracles tomorrow or yesterday, but we stand in a gap between miracles. I believe that if we had faith, we’d see miracles now—though I don’t believe we ought to celebrate miracles by putting up big tents and advertising that we’re going to have a miracle!
