I don’t know if you’re already satisfied with the afore answers. However, recently I have pondered this same question. Yesterday in fact. So if you’ll excuse me for potentially expounding upon a dead topic, I am eager to share my perspective.
When I was young, I was allergic to eggs. I couldn’t even eat cookies because if they had eggs in them, the food would soon come right back up. Therefore, up until the ages between 5-7 (I don’t clearly recall) I had an utterly egg-free diet. One evening I had asked my parents to pray with me that I be healed of my allergy. That night, we prayed, and the next morning, I had eggs.
I’m telling you the egg allergy was legitimate, but it was instantaneously remedied.
Now everybody’s body undergoes chemical changes: For example, every seven years we have all new taste buds which explains why our tastes for things change. This also could explain how I became healed. Even if it is what happened, does it alter the fact that God made it happen?
I recollect on that miracle to remind me not to lose faith. Often, I lose my belief. But God intervened not so that I can go racing around the world sharing explicit proof of God’s existence. No, I think God gave me one valid miracle to myself only. He knew that I would lose hope; belief. But now I am confronted with a choice. Will I perceive that incident as being God’s hand or will I just see it as something convenient?
The whole reason Christ died was not to intervene as to become some hero or evince His Godliness. What He came to do was bestow upon us a choice. Beforehand, we were not inadequate but incapable of accepting God as who he is: an entity with whom to relate. God’s goal has been to exhibit how much he loves; not how much he exists.
Our fickle minds constantly lose sight of our choice. So God steps in, reminds us of his existence, but shows us our choice. So what’s left now is for us to choose if we will or will not engage in our relationship with him.
Yes, I may just have reiterated what many people have already supplied. However, it felt good to share my speech.
Have a good life.
