1 Peter 4:11 reads, "If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified ..." The oracle ministry always precedes the miracle ministry. Jesus could not do many miracles because of unbelief. For you see, faith comes by hearing and believing the word of God. The man who had a demon possessed boy asked Jesus to deliver him saying, "Lord, I believe. Help my unbelief!". In another place Jesus said, "Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe". But then he turned to Thomas and said, "Thomas, Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.” There are those who have watered down God's word because of lack of faith and human tradition. Human tradition says, "we've always done it this way" and yet God calls their wisdom "words without knowledge" and "dark counsel" (Job 38). Romans 3:4 reads, "What if they do not believe, does that make the faithfulness of God any less? God forbid. Let God be true and every man a liar". We do not judge ourselves by ourselves but by the plumbline of the Spirit of Truth, which is, the word of God. This is why we pray, "Our Father which is in heaven, Hallowed (holy and sacred) is your name. It is the error of man to bring God down to man's level for Numbers 23:19 reads, "God is not a man that he should lie; neither the son of man that he should repent. Has he said, and shall he not do it? Has he spoken and shall he not make it good?" He said in Malachi 3, "Prove me and see". God is wanting to prove himself if we will only believe.
