John 12:37 CEV: He had worked a lot of miracles among the people, but they were still not willing to have faith in him.
My dear friend in Christ, today’s text speaks about the many miracles Jesus performed in His days but many were still not willing to have faith and confidence in Him. It is obvious that what produces faith in a man is not the sight of Miracles but by the very word of God. The Bible records that faith cometh by hearing and hearing the word of God. Romans 10:17.
Many today are highly driven by miracles, signs, and wonders. Others prophesy and so on. These are good, however, they cannot produce the faith that will sustain you. Don’t go around looking for where prophecy, signs, wonders, and miracles abound. Rather seek out where sound messages about Christ are preached. In that way, you will build your faith and before you realize it, you will be the one performing the signs, wonders, and miracles through the power of God.
This is true because Jesus himself said, these signs shall follow them that believe (have faith in him); In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
Mark 16:17-18. I encourage you to stay with the word, you will come back with a testimony.
Declare to yourself loud: I believe in you, Lord Jesus.
My Father and my God, continue to guide me along the path of your word. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
