“Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life” (John 9:3, NIV).
When Jesus’ disciples saw a man who had been blind since he was born, they assumed it was the result of sin. Jesus quickly corrected their misunderstanding with the statement above from John 9:3. God’s intention to display his glory in this man was planned before the man was born.
You see, no one had ever heard of a person who was born blind being given sight. Thus when Jesus healed him, it would be clear that the miracle was something only God could do. Though the Pharisees questioned the miracle, the event transformed the man himself. His life became a megaphone proclaiming what God can do.
The man born blind isn’t the only person whose life has been orchestrated in order that it would be a platform for the work of God. God has a purpose for each one of us. Your whole life has been planned and prepared to be a series of opportunities for God’s work to be displayed.
c short comings, handicaps are all suitable circumstances for God’s power to be revealed in your life. Musical talents, academic ability, technical aptitude, creative potential when used for God are also ways God exhibits his glory through your life.
God make me aware of the ways that You desire to display Your works in my life. Teach me to be obedient and humble, allowing Your glory to be revealed. Amen
