John 9:3 (GNT with Deuterocanon) 3 Jesus answered, “His blindness has nothing to do with his sins or his parents’ sins. He is blind so that God’s power might be seen at work in him.
Many of us are born with disadvantage. Wether it is physical, financial, emotional or mental it is often blamed on our parents. Of course many times we can play Monday morning quarter back and look at all the things our parents should have done better. Better choices may have prevented us from living the life that we are forced to live. But what if our disadvantage is really something far greater than the missteps of our parents? That is exactly what Jesus is demonstrating here. The blind man’s life served a purpose. Through God’s work in his life many would see God’s power. When we have an encounter with Jesus and allow Jesus to show God’s power through our weakness, not only may we be healed, but our healing becomes a powerful testimony.
Lord show me how to look at my disadvantages as an opportunity for You to do your work
In Jesus Name
