September 24

BIBLE MEDITATION: ?Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.? Matthew 24:45-46

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: It is sinful for us to ask God to prove Himself by a miracle or sign, though I guess we have all done it. When I was at Stetson University as a young boy having my quiet time in the prayer room, I asked God to move a chair from one side of the room to the other. I told him, ?I already believe You and I don?t want to insult You, but what a confirmation it would be to my heart and life if You would just do this small miracle.? Isn?t that dumb? I am so glad that God didn?t let the devil nudge that chair across that room and get me hooked on some kind of hocus-pocus. Jesus said that asking God for a sign, like this, is evidence of an evil, adulterous heart (see Matthew 12:39). Oh, that God would find us faithful and unashamed of what we do in His name.

ACTION POINT: Have you ever done something like I did ? asked God to perform something supernatural to confirm in your heart that He is listening or that He is God? Confess that is unbelief, and ask His forgiveness. Ask Him to give you faith that loves Him just because He is worthy of your allegiance!
