Give Me a Sign!
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1, ESV).
I chuckled as I read the words posted on a sign at a local church: “‘Well, you have been asking Me for a sign!’—God.” Now, be honest. Are you one of those folks who has said at different times in your life, “If I could just see a sign, if I could just see a miracle, I’d believe in God.”
That simply is not true! Look at all those plagues in Egypt. How did Pharaoh and the Egyptians respond? Their hearts just got harder. And look at what happened with the miracles of Jesus. People witnessed Him raise a man from the dead, and all the religious leaders could think about was how to get rid of Him. They didn’t change; their hearts just got harder and harder. Throughout history, people’s hearts didn’t change just because they saw or experienced a miracle. Miracles simply reveal if people are hard-hearted toward God or if they have any inkling of faith.
Are you waiting for some sign to give you the proof you’ve been looking for to believe in God? Remember, “Faith is the assurance of things hoped for.” The evidence for God’s existence is everywhere. What you have to decide is if you’ll be open-minded enough to acknowledge it, change your mind, and believe.
