Mark 8:17 And when Jesus knew it, he saith unto them, Why reason ye, because ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye your heart yet hardened?

The disciples had already seen Jesus work miracles. They had even seen Him provide bread when it was needed. Somehow, seeing they still did not believe. They did not understand that it wasn’t just some freak, weird, unusual thing that happened but instead God was in their midst and He was showing His power.

How often do we have hardened hearts because we do not realize that it it God who is doing the work in us? He saved us. He brought us out of sin. He has met all of our needs. Now we stand here saved and blessed but doubting that He can continue to work in our lives.

I challenge you to open your eyes. Be willing to admit where He has brought you from. Step out by faith trusting that God will continue to use you!
