why don't we believe the bible?

Why don't we believe the bible?

When Jesus tells us not to worry for tomorrow (Matt 6:34) why do we stay up at night? And we he says not to worry about what we'll eat or wear, etc, why do I think I need to be a millionaire to help that homeless lady and her son I saw earlier?

When Jesus says when two or more of us are gathered he is among us, why do we sometimes act like he isn't in the room? (Matt 18:20)

When Jesus says "I am in my father, you are in me and I am in you", why do we sometimes say "I feel distant from God?" (John 14:20)

When the psalmist says "I have called on you, for you will hear me", why do we sometimes feel that God is deaf to us? And why do we sometimes feel like our prayers are useless?

When Paul says "count yourself dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus", why do we still believe the lies of sin to feel good instead if embracing him? (Romans 16:11)

When Paul says "I did not come to you in words of wisdom, but I decided to nothing among you except Christ and him crucified", why do we feel that we have to rehearse great speeches and study apologetics to share your love with others? (1 cor 2)

When Paul says "you are a letter written from Christ, delivered by us, written not with ink, but with the spirit of the living god on the tablet of your hearts", why do we sometimes feel like we have nothing to share about you?

Why don't we believe you sometimes?
