Question 6 - Christ’s favor – disciples’ unbelief?

Luke 9:1 NKJV - "Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases."
Matthew 10:1, 8 NKJV - "And when He had called His twelve disciples to Him, He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease. ... "Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give."
Matthew 17:18-20 NKJV - "And Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him; and the child was cured from that very hour. Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, "Why could we not cast it out?" So Jesus said to them, "Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you."
They were not in a rightful position to get the power and authority. So, they could not drive them out to cure him. Because of their disbelief, they could not get the boon given by Him. Why did Peter not walk on the water after he walked half a distance? Is it not the disbelief! Or is it not the deficit of complete faith in us!
