Miracles That Curse?

As the crowds were increasing, He began to say, “This generation is a wicked generation; it seeks for a sign, and yet no sign will be given to it but the sign of Jonah.”

—LUKE 11:29

Many were questioning Jesus and seeking for a miracle they really did not want, because once they saw one, they were forced to a place of making a decision for which they were not ready. The decision was to accept what Jesus said He was or deny it. They had played a clever game in their minds and emotions; as long as they could ask Jesus questions, they could be unbelieving without condemnation. However, once seeing, they had to choose.

The problem was that they could not choose, and the only thing left to do was rid themselves of the One who performed the miracle and forced the decision. The miracle was actually a curse.

Believer, do you really want a miracle before God is ready to give it to you? It will demand a response and call for an action of faith on your part. Has your faith come to the place where you can so act? If not, the miracle will be a curse. To simplify things, seek Christ and not the miracle, so when the miracle comes, He will have prepared you for it.
