“The Pharisees and Sadducees came to Jesus and tested him by asking him to show them a sign from heaven.”

           Matthew 16:1

Miracles have a very specific purpose.  They are intended to glorify God and bring people to faith.  When your faith is doubted, the desire to see a miracle is very strong.  Jesus knew that even if he performed a miracle, his critics still would not accept his divine identity.

To have complete faith is to be able to accept the situations you are in, whether good or bad, and know that God has placed you there for a certain reason.  Sometimes we do not know what the reason is, but when we have the ability to let go and turn everything over to God the answer will be come apparent.

Dear God, I ask for you to help me to not always be looking for the miracle to happen.  Give me the faith to know that you are always there to take care of us all during the good and bad times in our lives.  In your son’s name, Jesus, I pray. Amen.
