Bible Reading: Jeremiah 5-6; John 12
Scripture: “This is exactly what Isaiah the prophet had predicted…” John 12:38 NLT
Observation: Jesus had performed so much miracles. These miracles were essentially to draw the people to God. But instead of believing by the miracles Jesus performed, they sort to kill Him just as most of the people still did not believe in Him. For this, God caused spiritual blindness and hardness of heart to befall them. This was just as Isaiah the prophet had said.
Application: Though I do not see God physically, I should believe the works of His hands as His works speak of Him; His power, glory and love. Just as the Pharasees were punished by God for the unbelief, I risk experiencing the fate of the Pharasees if I refuse to believe His works and Word.
Prayer: Let doubt give way to faith. Let pride give way to humility.
