Unbelief is when you make up your own mind about what God can and can’t do or what God won’t do and how He does and doesn’t operate. Unbelief finds its own methods for accomplishing God’s business — both corporately and personally. As we grow in our willingness to hear God’s voice and carry out Jesus-type ministry, we’re challenged to face areas in which we’ve not had previous experience.
We look at our own psychological and emotional resources and realize that they are inadequate for the demands of life. So we begin to see this enormous gap of what we can do in our own strength versus what we can do in the Holy Spirit. That gap is bridged when we step out in faith knowing that God is going to take care of issues. So, increased faith is one thing that will help you overcome the obstacle [stronghold] of unbelief.
