Surprising God

Matthew 8:10 KJV 
[10] When Jesus heard it , he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. 
We usually ask God in our prayers to “surprise” us, but sometimes we should surprise God with our faith as well. If without faith it is impossible to please God, then with faith that marvels God nothing is truly impossible. “Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe” (Saint Augustine). 



John 7:27
But we know where this man comes from, and when the Christ appears, no one will know where he comes from.”

Don’t be surprised when the people you most expect to support you don’t. Familiarity breeds contempt, and unfortunately, the people who are closest to you may sometimes take you for granted. It’s human nature, which even Jesus was not spared from experiencing.
