And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? John 9:2
Many times in life when something goes wrong or were faced with a struggle, we ask God why? Why would you allow this to happen? Why are you making me go through this? This same scenario was brought up by the disciples.
A man born blind from birth, so the disciples questioned Jesus, why? Why would God allow this to happen? Did the man bring it upon himself?
Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. John 9:3
Jesus clearly answered them that the man’s blindness was not his fault. Nor was it his parents or anyone else’s fault. God allowed the man to be blind so the glory of God can be revealed through him. So what does that mean?
First we must remember we live in a broken world, due to our sin we have subjected ourselves to disease and death. Second our purpose of life is to continue to learn and grow in preparation of Gods Kingdom. Since we can’t live in a perfect world, due to our choice of sin, we must learn from our struggles and turn to God.
What struggle or burdens have you been dealing with? Do you blame yourself or God? We need to learn that Satan wants to destroy us, but through Christ we can overcome everything. We can overcome any disease, struggle, addiction, illness, because Jesus has already overcome sin and death. So cast your troubles to Jesus and allow Gods glory to be displayed through you in Jesus Name AMen
