They answered, “Show us a miraculous sign if you want us to believe in you. What can you do?” – John 6:30 NLT
Does your daily faith require daily miracles?
When told that the only work God required of them was to believe in Jesus, the people demanded He give them a reason to believe by performing a miracle. Yet, just the day before, they all watched as He fed 5,000 men plus their wives and children with a two fish and five loaves of bread.
One miracle was not enough. They needed daily miracles. In other words, their belief had a 24-hour expiration date.
Unfortunately, too many of us operate in the same way. We have a “What have you done for me, lately” kind of faith. When we stop seeing God’s activity, our faith wanes, and our faith begins to drift.
We must remember that there is no expiration date on God’s grace, and therefore, there should be no expiration date on our faith. Jesus’ died once for all our sin. That is enough for life-long faith, obedience, and dedication to the kingdom.
So, when you begin to question if God is near or active, change the focus. Ask instead, if your faith is near or active. When you begin to operate on faith, you might be surprised that you begin to see God has been present and active all along; you just didn’t notice it.
