The proof is in the pudding.....means: To fully test something you need to experience it for yourself!
Before I became truly saved & into God, I thought much of what I saw Christians do was fake, until I actually decided to find out more about God for myself. And boy oh boy were my eyes opened, I became more than just a 'every Sunday church goer', I was transformed into a Christian, a follower of Christ Jesus....but I had a hard time trusting Him, I would constantly ask for signs & miracles as if He hadn't done enough for me!!
How many of us do this, knowing darn well that He has brought us out of some things.....? While studying this scripture:
And he sighed deeply in his spirit and said, “Why does this generation seek a sign? Truly, I say to you, no sign will be given to this generation.”It made me think; "Why don't we just trust God & stop trying to make Him prove Himself?" Over & over God has shown you who He is, by getting you out of this situation & that situation, getting you a new car, a new job, a better home, a more stable life. HE has rescued you from that relationship, that (possible) marriage, that accident, HE has protected you from things that you never seemed to understand because you saw it as a disappointment, a heartbreak or a setback! However, you STILL ask for more signs?!!
When will you trust God....Hasn't God done enough in Jesus alone?!
Are you trying to see if He will change His mind, be unfaithful, untrue, or if He will mess up?
God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?
so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.
God has already shown Himself trustworthy, but how can we find contentment, satisfaction, gratefulness?
1 Timothy 6:8
But, if we have food and clothes, we will be satisfied with that.
I am not telling you this because I need anything. I have learned to be satisfied with the things I have and with everything that happens.
Be Content & Trust God. Don't allow yourself to test God so much that we become like the Pharisees in Mark 8 that are cut off from His signs, miracles & wonders!!
Just Trust God!!
