31 When Israel saw the great power which the Lord had used against the Egyptians, the people feared the Lord, and they believed in the Lord and in His servant Moses.
Exodus 14:31 NASB
The Israelites saw many signs and wonders. From the plagues in Egypt to the parting of the Red Sea, they saw God’s hand move in their favor.
But right before they walked across the Red Sea on dry land, the people grumbled and complained. They saw the miracles in Egypt. They plundered the Egyptians. They saw the cloud by day and the fire by night. It still wasn’t enough to convince them, without a shadow of doubt, that God was for them.
If you build your faith on signs and wonders, on God’s power, God is always going to have to one up Himself in your view. Instead, you must live for God because He is God and there is no other. We follow Jesus, our Lord and Master. There should be no question about our love and committmemt to Him. But we love because He first loved us.
The blessings, signs and wonders, are just an added benefit.
If you never received another blessing from Jesus, is His death and resurrection, your forgiveness and eternal life, enough? Are you constantly looking for something more, another way for God to prove Himself to you?
God if you do this…. God why is this happening…
Don’t base your committmemt to Jesus on what He can do or His power. He has already done it all!
Lord, thank You that You are more than enough. Our names are written in the Book of Life. And yet, You still continue to pour out Your live and blessings on us.
