That’s yucky…

“He took him aside in private, away from the crowd, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spat and touched his tongue.”

Mark 7:33

Sometimes God’s approach to our problems seems very strange to us and can be difficult for us to understand.

Naturally, our 21st century soap and hand sanitizer approach to life makes this miracle completely unacceptable…but God is sovereign and is not limited by what we deem as acceptable.

If only we can get past ourselves and look beyond our modern context, we will notice that Jesus was not appealing to our sense of cleanliness but to our faith.

Our miracles come when we trust the Master’s methods even if we don’t understand them.

He knows what He’s doing. So let’s trust Him.


Dear God, I do not understand Your ways, but I know they are best. Help me to trust in you. In Your name, Amen.
