8 Now the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, 9 “When Pharaoh speaks to you, saying, ‘Work a miracle,’ then you shall say to Aaron, ‘Take your staff and throw it down before Pharaoh, that it may become a serpent.’” 10 So Moses and Aaron came to Pharaoh, and thus they did just as the Lord had commanded; and Aaron threw his staff down before Pharaoh and his servants, and it became a serpent. 11 Then Pharaoh also called for the wise men and the sorcerers, and they also, the magicians of Egypt, did the same with their secret arts. 12 For each one threw down his staff and they turned into serpents. But Aaron’s staff swallowed up their staffs. 13 Yet Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he did not listen to them, as the Lord had said. (Exodus 7:8-13 NASB)
When your heart is hardened even a miracle will not persuade you. This is the problem of Pharaoh. It may even be your problem right now. You may be asking God for more proof, more miracles, more wonders. You may be praying for more assurances, more guidance and more certainty. You won’t move and you won’t obey until you are fully convinced. Is this what is stopping you from moving forward toward God’s will? Perhaps you need to consider this. After asking God to show you more proof, and if, by God’s grace, He shows you one, stop contradicting it. Do not harden your heart. Listen to the Lord and obey Him. You do not need 100% proof to do anything. You only need 51% and that will start the journey of faith. If you can be more certain that God’s will is true rather than not true, even though you may still have some doubts left, then you can go ahead and obey Him by faith. if you have 100% proof of anything, then you do not need faith anymore. But if you do not see it yet, or there are risks involved in trusting God, then faith is necessary. So stop swallowing up God’s miracles in your life. Start believing and start obeying. Do it today.
