Blind and lame people came to him in the temple courtyard, and he healed them. When the chief priests and the scribes saw the amazing miracles he performed and the children shouting in the temple courtyard, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” they were irritated. They said to him, “Do you hear what these children are saying?” Jesus replied, “Yes, I do. Have you never read, ‘From the mouths of little children and infants, you have created praise’?” He left them and went out of the city to Bethany and spent the night there.
The chief priests and scribes saw the amazing miracles and healings that Jesus’s was doing and their takeaway was to be upset that the children were praising him. The priests’s ability to be negative in the sight of such amazing acts of power is incredible. It is as if they had blinders on.
Over the years I have read many theories that tried to use scientific explanations of biblical miracles. Or to just dismiss them as misdirection or slight of hand illusions.
Miracles are those times when the Creater of all the physical laws of the universe intervenes and for an instant changes those laws. However, if you have the blinders of preconceived ideas to cloud the way you view things, you will miss the miracles and only be irritated by the voices of praise.
Are you watching for miracles?
