“Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind
And His disciples asked Him, saying, Rabbi, who sinned,
this man or his parents, that he was born blind?
Jesus answered, Neither this man nor his parents sinned,
but that the works of God should be revealed in him.
Isn’t it interesting how the disciples immedaitely pointed
to sin as the reason for the man being in the situation he was
in. Even Job had the same problem. His friends thought sin
was behind all the misfortune that befell him but that was
not the truth. It wasn’t true for Job, for the blind man and
it’s not true for you!
Jesus answered, neither this man nor his parents sinned, but
that the works of God should be revealed in Him.
I had a thought, maybe you haven’t received your
breakthrough because God wants to reveal His glory
and greatness through your situation!
Please get me here, I am not saying we must cross out
ourselves out as the problem. We could be the problem
to a lot of the problems we are facing. But what I am trying
to say is that there are things that are happening or
not happening because God wants to reveal His goodness
and glory in HIS time!
When the blind man received his sight that was a testimony
of how great God is but it happened at the right time.
When Job got his life back God got the glory even though
it didn’t make sense in the beginning. He didn’t
understand why the things that were happening were
happening. But God knew!
The problem comes when we look at how other people
are living and we begin to compare our lives to theirs.
Your life is in God’s hands and He is directing it. He has
a plan for you and it will come to pass.
Always remember, He wants to reveal His goodness and
greatness through you.
Hannah was in the same situation. She was barren but
wanted children. She could have wondered why that was
so. Did she think God favored Peninnah over her? Maybe.
Whatever the case, she was not in a good place. But God had
a plan. He would reveal His wonderful acts through Hannah!
Peninnah could bear children but Hannah bore Samuel!
It was worth the wait…..
I have to constantly remind myself that God has a plan
for me. He has not forgotten about me. Even if it seems
like it. My friends have moved on with thier lives. They
have families of their own, and so on and here I still am
waiting on God. But I am not upset. He has a plan.
His goodness and greatness will be manifested through
me I believe. I may not understand why some things
are the way they are but I trust God does…..and that’s
all that matters!
Don’t be discouraged friends. He will come through for you.
He will be magnified though your life. People won’t help
but praise God because of the things that are happening
in your life. He is so good!
God bless you for sharing these words! Indeed God has a plan for everyone even before we came into existence…patience is all we need and so help us God.
You welcome! We hope, expect and trust
in Him cause He is so good! May He help us be patient….. Bless you!
