Let not your hearts be hardened!

And he went up unto them into the ship; and the wind ceased: and they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure, and wondered. For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened. Mark 6:51-52

We find the disciples in a situation where Jesus had just fed over five thousand people with a few loves and fishes. The food had multiplied dramatically so that there was quite a bit more left over when everyone was done eating, than there had been when they began to eat! And yet the Bible tells us that the disciples hearts were hardened! They were amazed that Jesus was able to walk on water and that the wind obeyed Him. I am sure that none of us would think that we would ever be in the same situation. That is, God performing a wonderful miracle before our eyes, and then being amazed that He has the power to do an even greater miracle. Yet, if we are not careful this is the very situation we will find ourselves in. Praying and receiving a miracle, and then not being able to comprehend how He can do something even greater.

Eph 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

He has the ability to go so far beyond what we can think that it will blow our minds! Let us trust in Him to provide whatever the situation.
