Sign language is for deaf people…
those who HEAR God don’t need signs to confirm it.
- I’m not sure I really believe what He said, or
- I know what I heard but I really don’t want to do it.
Obviously, either of these examples speak to our lack of trust or our lack of obedience. Sure, God does at times confirm His Word… He does so to add blessings and confidence to our obedience, however, He certainly is not obligated to perform for us… and we shouldn’t ask Him to. Sometimes we’re like Thomas saying, I won’t believe or won’t respond or won’t obey UNLESS “________________”… but hear the words of Jesus …
“So, you believe because you’ve seen with your own eyes. Even better blessings are in store for those who believe without seeing” John 20:29.
Friend, when you hear God speak – leap to obey – IF He chooses to bless you with a sign, cool – but IF not, do it anyways and do it quickly. Live the adventure called: FAITH.
