What’s wrong with asking for signs and miracles? Nothing. Jesus did them. But there is something wrong when we begin to demand signs and wonders. It dishonors God. It says, “God, I can’t take You at Your Word; You’ve got to prove yourself to me.”
The disciple Thomas said, “Except I shall see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into His side, I will not believe” (John 20:25).
When Thomas saw Jesus, he fell down on his knees (and rightly he should have). He said, “Lord, I believe…my Lord and my God” (John 20:28). But here’s what Jesus said to him: “Thomas, because thou hast seen Me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed” (John 20:29).
When you demand signs, not only is it dishonoring to God, but it is also dangerous to man. Signs and wonders can be very deceiving.
