John 9:1 Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth….. 11 So I went and washed, and I received sight.
There is so much rich goodness in this chapter and even in these first 11 verses but I just wanted to share something that caught my eye this morning. For those of you who see God working in everyone else’s life & ministry, and while you are excited for them, you sometimes find yourself wondering when it will be your time. When will I get healed? When will my child be saved? When will I get that opportunity? Is it too late? Well Don’t Worry, God has not forgotten you. He loves you and is already at work. Now you should read the whole chapter as some point it will bless you. I want to highlight a few things:
The scripture says “as Jesus passed by,” it would seem that the man was not on His agenda. However, Jesus tells his disciples that this man’s situation was “that the works of God should be revealed in him.”—Take Away: It may look like God is passing you by but He’s using your situation so everyone can See Him work.
You see while he was passing by the man, teaching His disciples and leaving each of us wisdom to live by (God’s always at work), he was forming the mechanism He would use to heal the man and anointing the area of need. “He spat on the ground and made clay with the saliva; and He anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay.” —Take Away: It may seem like nothing is happening, but know that God is anointing you and your circumstance as prepping for His “Big Reveal.”
After this Jesus told the Blind man to “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam,” the blind man went, washed and came back with his site. —Take Away: Just Go!! The blind man could not see, he did not know where he was going, he could not even see the man who was telling him to go. However, by faith he moved and did what God said. If God has given you instruction…Just Go your Healing, your Miracle, your Breakthrough your Vision Awaits!!!
“So the man went and washed, and came home seeing.”
