Why God does not just do amazing miracles to convince us all to believe?
Have you ever wondered why God does not just do amazing miracles to convince us all to believe?
If God simply overwhelmed with incredible demonstrations of His power, then the hardened heart may reluctantly admit that God is God. Not because they really had faith, but because they had no answer to refute God. Yet the heart condition had not changed. It is still hard! They will find other excuses later on to disbelief or not to follow God.
That is why I believe God often uses the more subtle approach. Because God seeks to expose the true heart condition. That is why Jesus said in John 20:29 (NIV) 29 "Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed."
One day when we stand before the judgment seat of God, we will have no excuses. God will point to various incidents and say - that shows the condition of your heart!
