John 9:1-3 NKJV
Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth. And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him.
Many times we wonder why God has put us in certain situations. We feel like it’s unfair. That if God were a just God, no one should struggle. I hear this question a lot from unbelievers and even have asked it myself at a time in my life: “If there is really a God, why is there suffering in the world?”
And here is the answer to that question. So that people would be unique, we were given free will. Otherwise, everyone would be exactly the same. Every person has a story. You aren’t struggling because you are being punished. You may be going through a trial to reveal God’s works in the end to be a witness to the world or even just one person. Everybody has a story. You can choose to suffer through your struggles alone. Or you can call out to Jesus, who is alive and real, and lay your worries at the feet of the one that made everything. You can believe that He will put his arms around you and carry you through this, and in the end your sad story can be a testimony of the marvelous works that God did with you.
Just remember, when you get down, wondering what you did to deserve this, that it may just be that God just wants to use you again to do His works.
Love you all and God Bless
