38But if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the Father.” 39Again they tried to seize him, but he escaped their grasp.
40Then Jesus went back across the Jordan to the place where John had been baptizing in the early days. There he stayed, 41and many people came to him. They said, “Though John never performed a sign, all that John said about this man was true.” 42And in that place many believed in Jesus. (John 10:38-42)
Thoughts: John the Baptist did no miracles. But his great miracle was his recognition of Christ as the Messiah. Jesus did many miracles, but his enemies did not see these as messianic credentials. Rather, they saw them as threats to their keeping the status quo. John the Baptist was against just keeping the status quo- for his message was one of repentance- turning away from the norm. But those who were open believed in Jesus. To be open to Jesus, we must also be open to changing and humbling ourselves before God. We can see Jesus for who He is if we are willing to humble ourselves before Him. We can see answered prayers if we put our faith in Him. Those who do not believe will always have "choice blindness" to God.
Prayer: Help me Lord to see you and your miracles. Help me to put my faith in you, and trust in you.
