As Jesus walked along, he saw a man who had been blind since birth. Jesus' disciples asked, "Teacher, why was this man born blind? Was it because he or his parents sinned?" "No, it wasn't!" Jesus answered. "But because of his blindness, you will see God work a miracle for him.
Sometimes we ask “stupid questions.” I know I have been guilty of that. The disciples asked Jesus if the man had been born blind because he sinned. Such a question would assume that the man had sinned before he was born! I am glad Jesus didn't respond by pointing out how silly their question was.
Jesus said that the reason the man could not see when he was born was so other people could see God work a miracle for him later in his life!
Obviously the blind man did not know why he could not see. God knew that there was a reason for his “disability.” When the man’s lack of sight came face to face with Jesus, his disability gave way to God’s Glory!
Don’t seek a miracle in your life. Seek to be face to face with Jesus and trust Him to apply His power to your weakness in whatever way brings God the Glory He deserves! He may take away your problem, or He may enable you to thrive and have victory in your life in spite of that burden!
“Lord Jesus, open my eyes today because I desire to see Your face as I stand before You. May I be blind to everything else on earth except Your Precious Glory! Praise Your Holy Name now and forever. Amen.”
