If God never asked anyone to believe or accomplish the impossible, they would never see His power, capability or Love – Relax in what He can do through Resting in Him!
“I have compassion for these people; they have already been with me three days and have nothing to eat. If I send them home hungry, they will collapse on the way, because some of them have come a long distance.” – Mark 8:2-3
The reason why legalists feel a need to prove everyone else is wrong starts with the idea that satan places in them that Christ did not wash them clean to begin with! They have a constant need to prove a Miraculous God is really a Non-Miraculous god! The reason I say this is that the first and most Amazing miracle is that He made me Whole, provided Everything I needed to be Reconciled, Holy and made 100% right with Him now and forever more!
If we cannot see His first miracle in our life other miracles will be contrived at best most of the time but not all the time. There are several lessons from these two short verses and these lessons are Very Relaxing for the Grace-Full!
1) Christ has compassion on people – It didn’t say just those that agreed with Him, joined His support team or signed up for His newsletter – just people who had come to hear the voice of Love, Mercy and Forgiveness!
2) Christ knows what you need – Now and in the future – Relax and Be at Peace with His knowledge and Goodness!
3) Christ will ask the impossible to show the improbable so Faith can create Gratitude and Praise for God and His Amazing Love and Grace – Faith can best be grown in a dark place realizing that Only He is capable to create the light you need to move on!
The biggest difference between the god of legalist and The God of Grace outside of only One existing is in His Goodness! The god of the legalist and effort based Christianity is only good if they are good! The God of Grace and Love Is Good ALL the time, He Is Love ALL the time and His Mercy never ends!
