Then they scoffed, “He’s just a carpenter, the son of Mary and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas, and Simon. And his sisters live right here among us.” They were deeply offended and refused to believe in him. – Mark 6:3 (NLT)
Have you noticed that when you’re used to something it’s hard to appreciate it? In today’s Bible verse, we see people who didn’t believe in Jesus because they were used to Him. They lived with him, knew his family, and didn’t see how miraculous he was.
How often do we miss what God is trying to do in our lives because at times it seems ordinary? We miss that God is blessing us at our job because it’s not always easy. We miss the fact that God has brought friendships into our lives because they don’t always treat us right.
It’s so easy to miss the miraculous in our lives because sometimes it appears ordinary. And often we miss what God is doing because it doesn’t seem extraordinary. Choose today to not take for granted what God is doing in your life. Instead be thankful and realize that God is doing the miraculous in your life even if it feels like you can’t see it yet.
