Scripture – John 10:24-25
The Jews, circling him, said, “How long are you going to keep us guessing? If you’re the Messiah, tell us straight out.” Jesus answered, “I told you, but you don’t believe. Everything I have done has been authorized by my Father, actions that speak louder than words.
Observation – Jesus keeps telling and showing the Jewish people who he is and that He was sent by God for them. They just couldn’t get past their own faithlessness to see what was right in front of them.
Application – How many times has God shown me His presence only to hear me say, “how long are you going to keep me guessing?” I am like so many who choose not to see Him in everything, everywhere. I have to begin to really see, with not only my eyes, but with my heart. Only then can I see Him in front of me and hear Him all around me.
Prayer – Dear Lord, you have given me such blessings and still I sometimes forget that your grace is forever. In times of trouble, I doubt you, even asking you where you are. Please forgive me. I am humbled by my lack of faith at times and your constant love. Help me to open my heart to receive your Word in all I do. Amen.
