I was recently struck with a couple lines from Mark 8. Jesus had just performed an incredible miracle testifying to His Kingship - out of compassion He feeds the 4000. This was one more in a long line of unmistakable manifestations of His divinity and yet how do the Pharisees respond? They ask for a sign. Mark 8:12 and 13 states "Sighing deeply in His spirit... Leaving them, He again embarked and went away to the other side." What a sad statement - "...He went away to the other side..."

Daily, in our very midst - the Lord is working wonders - as Tozer says, "Always a living person is present, speaking, pleading, loving, working, and manifesting Himself whenever and wherever His people have the receptivity necessary to receive the manifestation." How much do I miss, how often do I pray for God to do a work and at the same time ignore of miss His obvious workings? Having eyes to see the Lord's wonders takes some practice - being intentional about looking, seeking and then upon seeing His activity, giving thanks, and pointing it out to others. Will God do wondrous things among us today? Of that, there is no doubt. Will we take notice?
