Have you ever caught yourself thinking that your trials in life or business are a direct result of something you did or something someone else did to you?
You may even find yourself asking:
"Why Me, God?!?!"
Why did I do this or why did they do that???
May I challenge you for a moment...What if your current trials were not a result of anyone's sin (not even yours)?
This morning as I was having my own quiet time, I read over a Bible story that stopped me in my tracks. The story was found in John 9 (MSG) where the disciples asked Jesus, "Rabbi, who sinned: this man or his parents, causing him to be born blind?"
Perhaps they thought like we do: God is so powerful; surely, it must be someone's fault why this man is blind. Who was it? Was it this man? Was it his parents? Why is he blind??????
But Jesus in all his wisdom responded...."You're asking the wrong question. You're looking for someone to blame. There is no such cause-effect here. Look instead for what God can do...." (MSG)
(pause for a moment)
When is the last time you stopped and asked, "God, what can you do about this?"
What if that thing you or I are facing was given to us so that God's work might be displayed in us?
What if God trusts us to be the ones to manifest his glory? To prove that He can and will heal us, deliver us, set us free and propel us...
Just looking at it from that perspective makes me stop asking, Why Me?
I started meditating on that scripture more and more this morning, and I can't help but to praise God for the revelation I received:
- God WANTS to display His works through ME.
- God WANTS to work through ME.
- God WILL help ME through this because He loves ME that much.
My friend, does this excite you? This promise is available to you, too!!!
God really does care about our lives. He cares about our businesses.
When anxiety or doubt or fear tries to suffocate us, there is a promise and a reassurance that we can stand on.
Another version of John 9:3 reads...."but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him." (NIV)
I pray that you are encouraged today and know that God has not forgotten you!
