Give Me A Sign
It could be because they are seeing so many people flock to follow Jesus that they want their own piece of the pie. Or are they actually sarcastically demanding a sign because they think this Jesus guy is a bit ridiculous? It is an odd request, especially given the many signs he performed throughout his earthly ministry.
Give Me A Sign
Why does Jesus say no sign will be given to that generation? Because the Pharisees should recognize that his actions and his teachings point to him being the great prophet, priest and king the Old Testament foresees. If only they would open their eyes and ears to see and listen!

No one argues that learning a foreign language would affect one's ability to speak fluent English. However, when it comes to ASL, there are still ignorant people who sell the narrative that if one learns to sign, they'll refuse to speak because they don't need to or whatever else they argue.
Have you ever asked God to give you a sign? It is a bold thing to do, but I believe most of us have all done it before. Sometimes out of desperation, frustration, confusion, or even isolation. A physical, tangible, visible sign is sometimes what we need to confirm that God is speaking to us.
In reviewing these passages again this week (and hearing another sermon referencing Moses asking God for a sign!), I now believe that God does want us to Him and boldly ask for signs. We should not be ashamed or afraid to go to our heavenly Father and pour out our hearts. But, as I learned from both Moses and David, we need to make sure our hearts, minds, and souls are in the right place first.
The manner (the attitude we have, the posture we take) in which we come to God, seeking His face, asking Him to show us a sign, is so very essential. We cannot demand or pout, stomping our feet or throwing a temper tantrum when God does not reveal Himself in the way that we want.

You make some great observations. It is true that we no longer need as many tangible signs because of the Holy Spirit, but I do believe God confirms things to us through His Word and through other believers.
Was looking for some takes regarding this topic and I found your article quite informative. It has given me a fresh perspective on the topic tackled. Thanks! Please see also my blog, Four Signs You are Being Called By God
If i also give up on this relationship, its Over. Understood God IS MUST for a relation to seed, sprout, blossom and flourish .. rest all secondary. With GOD its more Honoring HIm and more satisfaction to us.
What a story, Steven! Thank you for sharing the lessons God taught you as you sought Him for beginning this ministry. I will continue to pray that God gives you direction, wisdom, and clarity as you step out in faith to do what He has called you to do! Your story is such an encouragement to me and will bless many others.
Hello, I am 54 and have been born again for 42 of those years. I have been praying for a sign that God is actually involved in my life. Just silence. I ask this because 42+ years of unanswered prayers (actual answer),not Yes, not No, not Wait, just silence. I ask this because 42+ years of the only experience with God being complete silence and absence. I pray for God to actually be involved in my life, in a manner that I can comprehend. I pray for God to supply the ability and resources to help homeless people get off the street and glorify God in the process. I pray for the resources to help my family. I pray for a way out of this life long poverty so that I can have a proper full Christian life. Too poor for church. I pray for God to reveal my specific purpose, why I am here. Just silence. I ask because I need a boost to my faith, trust, and hope in God. After 42 years levels are low. Thanks
Notably, the study found that the quality of our experience with dogs is an important factor that can counterbalance a low level of nonverbal sensitivity. Those students who had direct experience being responsible for a dog, rather than, for example, simply living in the same household as a dog without being the primary caregiver, had positive human-dog interactions, even when a low nonverbal sensitivity might suggest otherwise. There are a couple of suggestions made about why this may be, for example, that students with more experience with dogs are better skilled at sending signals to dogs that make them feel secure and comfortable.
If you think about it, road signs are integral to keeping drivers alive. A traffic sign could mean the difference between a driver making that life-saving stop or possibly running into oncoming cars. Drivers have to making important decisions in a matter of seconds, which is why sign manufacturers create signage with the human psyche in mind.
Like color, the shape of a sign can have an effect on how drivers react. Signs with sharper points, such as a triangular-shaped sign or the octagon stop sign are usually associated with danger, whereas rectangular signs tend to convey standard information, like speed limits and directions. In essence, signs that lack sharp points or have more rounded edges do not necessarily stick out in our minds because they seem non-threatening.
He showed me that the purpose of the hard time was to burn some things off me. It was a fire that purged me of my dependence on emotions, on signs, and on what I could see. It was a fire that taught me that man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.
I know it is impossible for You to be found wanting or lacking in any area. You are good, and You reign supreme, and You are faithful. Great is Your faithfulness, O God my Father. There is no shadow of turning with You! I want You to be honored in my life. I want to obey You in all things, and I want to give You glory.
Thank You, Jesus. Thank You, Father and Holy Spirit. Thank You for comforting me. Thank You for the sign You are showing me today. Open my eyes and help me to see everything You are showing me, and I give You all the praise.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. I have been praying and praying and I have had moments of doubt. But i DO NOT want to give up on my faith. I was completely sure that our situation was going to be worked out, but we recently were hit with a blow. I need a sign, a hug, a reassurance. I need you lord. I need you.
Nice to see author Ann Clare LeZotte speak and sign about her book in this video but is anyone else SERIOUSLY bugged by the fact that the video keeps arbitrarily cutting to views of the cover when the author is speaking/signing? Geez, Scholastic. Read the room, willya?
In these ways, Mary and I are quite similar. This book, from initial research to final edits, was more than a decade in the making. Sometimes the words flowed onto the page. Other times, they came in signs that were difficult to interpret, or in a stream of feeling that resembles musical vibrations. 041b061a72
