In our relatively new home, we have a well and pump. The pressure had always been strong. Then the pressure dropped. When we removed the filter and let the water run in a bucket the amount of water coming did not match the water pressure the pump was showing. Then we found the culprit- a small pebble was blocking things. Removing it, the pressure came back to normal immediately. It illustrates the truth that when we reject Christ because of the sin of unbelief (a seemingly small thing, like a little pebble) it affects our relationship with God. Isaiah explained – “Behold the Lord’s hand is not shortened that it cannot save, nor His ear heavy that it cannot hear. And your sins have hidden His face from you so that He will not hear.” When unbelief is in our lives, God is not either. But when turn to Christ by faith, acknowledge our unbelief, we become the persons God intended us to be- in fellowship with Him!
