1As He passed by, He saw a man blind from birth. 2And His disciples asked Him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he would be born blind?” 3Jesus answered, “It was neither that this man sinned, nor his parents; but it was so that the works of God might be displayed in him. 4“We must work the works of Him who sent Me as long as it is day; night is coming when no one can work. 5“While I am in the world, I am the Light of the world.”
The disciples were focused on the cause of this mans blindness, in other words, who’s fault was it? Jesus pointed out that this mans purpose was not to display the disability but instead, it was to show What God could do with it!
Sometimes we do the same as the disciples, we see a situation and fix on the negative. We can change this outlook by remembering
Turn your eyes upon JESUS
“The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light.
know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
HIS purpose is Perfect! His Glory will shine out of the darkness!
Write this on your heart and in your mind! the next time you are faced with a difficult situation. Instead of playing the blame game or asking why, ask WHAT? What Will God Do with This!
Instead of staring down the struggle, stand face to Face with our Lord, His Glory shines. Fill your eyes with Faith and let His light be on display for All to see!
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face; And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace.
