An Evil Heart of Unbelief – Hebrews 3:12

Belief and believing are the key elements to the blessings of God in the Christian life. Belief and faith are synonymous; you cannot have one without the other. In its simplest form it is the inability of men to trust God and believe His word.

It is of such importance to God that we believe His Word and trust Him that He warns us of an evil heart. An evil heart of unbelief is sin. When we fail to trust God and His word it is evident that we have sin in our lives and cannot receive the rich and good blessings of God.

It is so sad that many of God’s people miss the rich and good blessings of God because they have been taken in by the world and told that it cannot be done. My Bible tells me all things are possible with God.

“Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to Him that believeth.” Mark 9:23

I do not believe that the “ALL” here is qualified. I believe it means exactly what it says, “ALL”. If that be so, and it is, then we do not have the desires of our hearts that would bring honor and praise to our God because we do not believe.

God’s people have allowed the world to convince them that He is limited in what He can do for us and through us. This apparently was not the understanding of the Apostle Paul. He wrote –

“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” Philippians 4:13

The only thing that hinders a great move of God is “an evil heart of unbelief” and that is sin.
