August 14
“And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: ‘The words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of God's creation. Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.  Revelation 3:14,20 ESV

1 Kings 9
When I looked up Cabul, it said it means “good for nothing”.  This is interesting to me for the areas around the Galilee are beautiful and lush today.  The information also given was that they were probably more like villages and not large cities, displeasing Hiram.  
Jeremiah 35
It never pleases the Lord to act righteously and live unrighteously.  I must obey God over humans every time (see Acts 5:29).  Yet, God surely is pleased with obedience when done in the order of things.  
Mark 6
It is always an amazing thing when people refuse healing and are indignant just because they know the one who prays for them.  It is the Lord who heals all through those obedient to His voice and never the person.  It is more amazing to me that these people were offended when they saw the miracles done by the Lord, Himself!  As the Lord commanded, it is wise to go at least 2 by 2 into unknown territory.  It also provides a witness.  The Lord always makes provision for He cares for His people!  Isn’t it interesting that because the disciples didn’t understand about the feeding of the 5,000 that they couldn’t understand how the Lord could walk on water?  Faith is connected.  I either have faith or not.  It is not a choice dependent on differing circumstances.  
56 And wherever he came, in villages, cities, or countryside, they laid the sick in the marketplaces and implored him that they might touch even the fringe of his garment. And as many as touched it were made well.
Meditate & Apply: Are there areas in my life where I lack faith?  If so I must repent and allow faith to grow where it is lacking.

The real us comes out eventually - we do need to act and live the same, it'd be like living a lie otherwise. Gods power to heal was so consistent, never failing. Yes, Lord show us areas where we can grow in faith, following closer to You.
