That applies in today’s society because though there are miracles everywhere, they still do not believe and probably will never believe. Some people would complain if they were hung with a brand new rope, yet they want something miraculous to happen in their lives. They are not willing to give God an opportunity to touch their lives for whatever reason, but as the bible also says in Philippians 2:10-11, so that at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. So, there will come a day when regardless of what they think, they will confess Jesus Christ and the sad part is they could have done that all along and would have been healed.
People are seeking something and some of them have no idea what or who but they are seeking. They are looking to the world and they are not getting results and that leads them to who knows. There is an answer and the answer is, Jesus. They will say that how can we believe in something they cannot see and I would tell them that He is there. He is always there regardless of what is going on in our lives and He is always ready to help us.
I recently seen a show on television and the people had been through a disaster and they were going to a cross and praying for help. I know that some societies it is proper or normal to go to the cross, but my question is why. The cross is empty, Christ left the cross and is now seated at the right hand of the Father, so they should be looking to heaven and not the cross. It really does not make any difference how you do it just as long as you do it. If you are seeking what only God can do then look to God and nowhere else. It says in 2 Chronicles 7:14, if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. He will heal our land, our lives, our souls and every part of us, but we need to seek Him and Him alone.
Follow your heart and not what you see around you. Your heart will not let you down because it is that part of you that knows and the part that Jesus will use to speak into your life. If you are seeking what only God can do, then seek God and He will do it. The world will bring nothing bur heartache and disappointment. Trust the Lord and you will find exactly what you are seeking from God.
