“Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind? Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life. As long as it is day, we must do the work of him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work. While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” John 9:2
I have always had a place in my heart for the mentally handicapped. I’ve always thought of this verse, and said to myself, “If only I could be that gateway for God’s miracles, so that these people might be healed!” Jesus himself says this. We know why these deformities and imperfections are here on this earth. It is to show off the glory of God!
Now, the second part of this verse talks about the day and darkness, and that darkness is coming. Is it still daylight? Was the daylight only when Jesus was alive? I don’t think so. I think that miracles can still happen today.
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” Hebrews 13:8
The only true way to test whether healing miracles still happen is to witness one first hand. Now, there have been plenty of small healing victories in my life and the life of my family. My mom had an ovarian cyst that needed to be removed and the doctors said that it didn’t look good and that it could be cancerous. But I do believe that through prayer from my father and our family that we received the miracle we were praying for. My whole family is very healthy and I am very thankful every day for that.
Justify me in this time in my life. Whatever happens with Katie, whatever happens with 2017, whatever happens with my job, just let it glorify you. Show me my path Lord. Start to reveal what you have laid out for me. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen!
