Scripture passage : Mark 6:45-52
51 Then He went up into the boat to them, and the wind ceased. And they were greatly amazed in themselves beyond measure, and marveled. 52 For they had not understood about the loaves, because their heart was hardened.
A hard heart is the heart of unbelief. When the work of God is not understood in one’s life, then his/her heart becomes hard. As one after the other miracle of God passes by in our life and if we still live in unbelief then our heart is getting hard after each miracle of God in our life. Why the situation is like this? This is because that when we do not understand the work of God in our midst, we do not build faith through that situation. Since we are not building up ourselves in the faith, every time a situation rises in our life that calls of the power of God, we are starting from scratch. There is no strength within us to stand on. For every situation we are becoming a fresher instead of growing to maturity in faith. For every work of God that passes by, we have to gain understanding of His work to be strengthened in faith. If we do that, then our heart will always be soft before God, believing in all things. If we fail to understand the miracle, then faith is not stored in your soul and the heart becomes hard to understand the furtherance of His handy work.
Thought of the Day:Strengthen in faith by recollecting the miracle that He has done in your life. When you strengthen yourself, you would be in a better position to understand God’s working in the next without any unbelief.
