And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. Mark 16:17,18

And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him. And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation. Mark 8:11,12

Contrast the two passages above. In the first, Jesus describes to His disciples the signs that will FOLLOW those that believe on Him. In the second, we see where those SEEKING a sign(for their own personal reasons) were denied a sign. In doing a simple concordance search for the words- sign(s)- you will find that this was not the only place that those opposing Jesus were searching for some sign to verify His authority and power. We should not seek for signs to validate our anointing, ministry, etc. Rather the signs should follow us as we labor for Him. When we believe on Him, follow after His will, and seek Him then the signs follow.

Let us seek Him rather than seeking signs.
