Have you ever been clueless, left in the dark or lost? Are you a quick learner or does it take you longer than the average person to understand something? Whatever the situation, you may experience a moment or subject that you just don’t get. Today’s title sounds like something that I heard numerous times from my parents in my youth.
Aware of their discussion, Jesus asked them: “Why are you talking about having no bread? Do you still not see or understand? Are your hearts hardened? – Mark 8:17
One day Jesus struggled with the lack of discernment that his disciples possessed. Despite witnessing miracles daily, these godly men were mental midgets, regularly missing the point of Jesus’ actions. Thus, Jesus appears to be frustrated in the passage above as if to say, “you just don’t get it do you?”
Do you have eyes but fail to see, and ears but fail to hear? And don’t you remember? – Mark 8:18
Today, Christians often walk around defeated, void of the power of the Holy Spirit. Instead of walking by faith, selfish servants of God tend to demand a sign as if the resurrection wasn’t enough. Unfortunately, out of sight, out of mind also refers to believers who are struggling to make sense of their current situation in life. When communication with the Lord fades, frustrated souls just want to know if they are on the right track or not. The sooner you acknowledge that you don’t have a clue, the greater the likelihood that God will shine light on your prayers and concerns.
