Luke 11:14-16  One day Jesus cast out a demon from a man who couldn’t speak, and when the demon was gone, the man began to speak. The crowds were amazed, but some of them said, “No wonder he can cast out demons. He gets his power from Satan, the prince of demons.” Others, trying to test Jesus, demanded that he show them a miraculous sign from heaven to prove his authority. (NLT)

Some people are impossible to please. To them, miracles are like Lay’s Potato Chips. No one can eat just one. No one is satisfied with one miracle. Jesus has to produce another to prove the first one wasn’t a fluke. I mean, anyone can get lucky now and then. 

Seeing is not always believing. 

Notice the wording in verse 16. They were testing Jesus. They were demanding a miraculous sign. There is an obstinance on display that might lead us to conclude these people wouldn’t believe Jesus if he died and rose again. 

What does Jesus have to do to gain your approval? 

How many miracles of Jesus will it take for you to stop worrying and start trusting? 

It’s a good day when we see Jesus for who he is and acknowledge that everything he does is good and pleasing. It’s a good day when we are satisfied with Jesus, making no more demands and trusting him completely. 

I will live a good day in light of who Jesus is.

Our Father, you have nothing to prove. You are good and do what is good, right, just, and compassionate. We can trust you with all things at all times. Empower us today to live with quiet confidence and dependence. Amen.

Daily D – Psalm 119:114

Psalm 119:114 You are my refuge and my shield; your word is my source of hope.

Daily D – Jonah 4:2-3

Jonah 4:2, 3 So he complained to the Lord about it: “Didn’t I say before I left home that you would do this, Lord? That is why I ran away to Tarshish! I knew that you are a merciful and compassionate God, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. You are eager to turn back from destroying people. Just kill me now, Lord! I’d rather be dead than alive if what I predicted will not happen.”

Daily D – Psalm 115:14-15

Psalm 115:14, 15 May the Lord richly bless both you and your children. May you be blessed by the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

Daily D – Joel 2:12-13

Joel 2:12, 13 That is why the Lord says, “Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.” Return to the Lord your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish.”

Daily D – Hosea 14:8-9

Hosea 14:8, 9 “O Israel, stay away from idols! I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you. I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from me.” Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those with discernment listen carefully. The paths of the Lord are true and right, and righteous people live by walking in them. But in those paths sinners stumble and fall.”
