KEY SCRIPTURE: JOHN 12:37 ” But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him:
In our key scripture, the Bible says these people saw so many miracles performed by Jesus, yet they did not believe in Him. In our days, there are many who have heard and even seen miracles, yet they do not believe in Jesus. Why do men refuse to believe although they might have encountered miracles. Miracles does not make believers. Believing is always a decision. Believing is from the spirit and not the mind.
They keep raising all kinds of arguments and reasons against the way of truth. There are some who claim miracles are over, and even every servant of God who works miracles is a false prophet. When men refuse the truth, they would definitely believe a lie. 2nd Thessalonians 2:11 “And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion that they should believe a lie”.
There is another reason why people will not believe even after the many miracles they see.
The people of Israel left Egypt through amazing miracles, yet they consistently displayed unbelieve and opposed the way of God. Psalm 78:22-23 “Because they believed not in God, and trusted not in his salvation though he had commanded the clouds from above and opened the doors of heaven.” Why were these people so rebellious? These people were so much self-centered and were not prepared to cast themselves absolutely on God.
Many people today have the same condition. Although they might have seen some miracles, they remain unbelievers because they are not ready to trust their life and future into God’s hands.
Dear reader, are you a believer in Jesus? Have you entrusted your life into Jesus’s hands? If you are a Christian, have you cast your life on Jesus? Have you decided to believe Him absolutely? To believe Jesus is to tell Him I cast my life on you, and I will trust you with my life under every situation.
Jesus you are the Lord of my life. I believe in you and I am ready to trust you whether in life or death. Thank you, Lord, that you are the way the truth and the life.
Prov 3:5 -7 KJV Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.
