Mark 15:43-44
“Joseph of Arimathea, a prominent member of the council, who was himself waiting for the kingdom of God, went boldly to Pilate and asked for Jesus’ body. Pilate was surprised to hear that he was already dead. Summoning the centurion, he asked him if Jesus had already died.”
Pilate was the one who passed judgement on Jesus, and turned him over to be crucified. It seems like that would have been on Pilate’s radar to keep tabs on the crucifixion as it unfolded, but he apparently didn’t even give it a second thought. To him, Jesus was just another average criminal that deserved to die, and didn’t deserve a second glance. The miracle of salvation was unfolding in front of him, and he never even noticed. 
God is at work in my life, and all around me. He is accomplishing the things He desires, whether or not I am taking the time to notice. If I am not mindful of His presence, I will miss the miracles taking place around me. I want to live in such a way as to see what God is doing! Not disregarding His presence as average or common, but taking the time to notice and recognize what he is doing. 
God, thank you for your presence in my life! Help me to see you at work, and not live life so casually that I miss seeing what you are doing right in front of me!
