signs and wonders?
between the Gospel and the Psalm, we have lots of stories of signs and wonders that God gives us to help us have faith in Him.
but we also see people telling Jesus to give them more signs to prove that He's the Messiah.
this article has a pretty amazing account of the atheist Emile Zola. here is a poignant excerpt:
"It is sometimes asked why God does not produce more miracles in order to make it easier for people to believe. The story of Zola at Lourdes gives one possible answer. If you choose to seal yourself off from the supernatural, no miracle is going to make a difference."
the people in Jesus's day were not just asking Him to give them miracles to help them believe. they were, like Zola, looking for ways to prove that He was NOT who He claimed to be.
God, please remind me of Your works throughout history and in my own life, so that I'll remember to have faith in You when things are hard.
