Monday Manna

The Watered Soul: Monday Manna

Jan 24, 2011

Monday Manna

Monday MannaLinking up with Joanne at An Open Book for Monday Manna. Today’s verse comes from Matthew 13:58 And he(Jesus) did not do many miracles there because of their lack of faith. As I reflect on this passage, the following stand out to me:

  • Jesus had the capacity to do more than He did.
  • The people’s faith limited the manifestation of miracles in their own lives and community.
  • People from a certain geographically  region missed out on what was available to them because they could not get pass their familiarity with the vessel that God was using.

Which leads me to ask myself do I have His hands tied in certain areas of my life due to unbelief?  And, what have I been missing out on because my inability to see beyond the package God has chosen to wrap the miracle in?

Wanda, thanks for joining in Monday Manna. Yes, this verse is very "soul-searching", isn't it?

Oh - I never thought of the "package" aspect of this. I think I'm pretty awful about inspecting the messenger rather than the message. thanks for the reminder!

Hi Wanda -

You are seeking - you shall find.

Love to you, my sister in Christ.

Hi Belbin9, good to hear from you. It's good to look beyond the text of the Word and find ourselves in it.

Sandra, blessings to you my sister.

Sharlyn, thank you.

Kim, just be sensitive to His leading and He'll surely direct you.

Joanne, I've been guilty of that myself.

Yvonne, it's my pleasure to take part in Monday Manna when I can. Always interesting to see what others glean from the same passage of scripture.

Food for thought, Wanda -

Where is God most at work? Maybe, just maybe, where I least see it...

Asking the Lord to make me more spirit-sensitive to what He CAN do, and what He WANTS to do...

GOD BLESS!

when doubts overwhelmed us we become blind of the truth that God wants to reveal to us...

I can relate to this because sometimes, if not often, I tend to doubt out of fear and confusion...

You got me thinking the same thing. This is something I really need to examine and meditate on.

This made me realize that we can be our own worst enemy due to our disbelief in various areas of our life.


Thanks for sharing this thought provoking post!! Blessings to you!!

Your post sure makes me think. How many times do we miss out because of our lack of faith and inability to see!
