Have you ever looked for your phone while you were on it? Or used the flashlight on your phone to search for it in your car? Yep, me too.

We all have moments of missing the obvious. 

Jesus predicted his death to his followers several times, yet they were still caught off guard when it happened. 

Here is the third time Jesus predicts it:

32 They were on their way up to Jerusalem, with Jesus leading the way, and the disciples were astonished, while those who followed were afraid. Again he took the Twelve aside and told them what was going to happen to him. 33 “We are going up to Jerusalem,” he said, “and the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death and will hand him over to the Gentiles, 34 who will mock him and spit on him, flog him and kill him. Three days later he will rise.” 
Mark 10:32-34

I have to remind myself not to be too hard on these guys. I’m sure they had a lot on their minds and were trying to process all that Jesus was doing and saying. But I, too, can miss the obvious. 

For the friend you are praying for, it can be difficult to see them overlook the evidence of God in their life and in the world. It can be tough to see them chalk everything up to coincidence when you know it was the handiwork of God. That’s ok. Keep praying for them, that they would one day see the obvious. 

Our Prayer: Father, may you and your works be revealed to my friend today. Open their eyes so that they may see your wonderful works.
