Matthew 13:58 And He did not do many miracles there because of their unbelief.
We might be tempted to think that the situation l presented in scripture today paints only a picture of such large scale faithlessness that miracles were not abundant. But that is just one side of the coin. If you negated the whole statement, we could infer that even though not many miracles were performed, “SOME” were; that is our focus.
Regardless of the consensus or alignment towards a specific agenda that exists, you can still be an exception. Even if the whole society is faithless, the whole society is lacking, the whole society is worried sick, you can still have faith, swim in abundance and be at peace. We have an example in Isaac who sowed in the midst of famine and reaped abundance.
So beloved, the fact that some miracles were performed is testament to the reality that regardless of what might appear to be a generalized or expected outcome, you can still provoke heaven to treat you as an exception. You don’t have to expect what everyone else is expecting because you are unique, and it is that uniqueness and difference which brings your rewards.
In the presence of ‘not many miracles’, you can belong to the group of people who receive ‘some miracles’ because you dared to see things differently.
