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 – Ezekiel 43:1-5

Ezekiel 43:1-5 He led me to the gate, the one that faces east, and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice sounded like the roar of a huge torrent, and the earth shone with his glory. The vision I saw was like the one I had seen when he came to destroy the city, and like the ones I had seen by the Chebar Canal. I fell facedown. The glory of the Lord entered the temple by way of the gate that faced east. Then the Spirit lifted me up and brought me to the inner court, and the glory of the Lord filled the temple.

Daily D – Ezekiel 37:3

Ezekiel 37:3 Then he said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I replied, “Lord God, only you know.”

Daily D – Ezekiel 36:26-27

Ezekiel 36:26, 27 “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. I will place my Spirit within you and cause you to follow my statutes and carefully observe my ordinances.”

Daily D – Psalm 40:6-8

Psalm 40:6-8
You do not delight in sacrifice and offering;
you open my ears to listen.
You do not ask for a whole burnt offering or a sin offering. Then I said, “See, I have come;
in the scroll it is written about me.
I delight to do your will, my God,
and your instruction is deep within me.”

Daily D – Psalm 39:4-5

Psalm 39:4, 5
“LORD, make me aware of my end
and the number of my days
so that I will know how short-lived I am.
In fact, you have made my days just inches long,
and my life span is as nothing to you.
Yes, every human being stands as only a vapor.”
Selah
