Beyond the analysis of Men

John 9:1-2
¹And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth. ²And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?

The disciples ask about a man born blind and whether his condition is because of his sin or his parent’s sin! This shows a prevalent thought among men where assumptions are made creating reasons only where men fit, nevertheless, Isaiah shows us that God’s ways are higher than our ways and His thoughts are higher than our thoughts (Isaiah 55:8-9).

Men’s thoughts are limited compared to God’s infinite wisdom. God does not rely on assumptions to establish truth. He knows all things and has a perfect understanding of the world. While men may speculate and come to conclusions, God ultimately holds the final verdict, as the saying goes: He has the final say.

John 9:3
³”Jesus answered, ‘Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him.'”

God redirects them, opening their mind to see that it is neither about the cause, nor the diagnosis, but rather about seeing a problem from a point of God’s glory. It Is high time men got aligned and in sense to realise that He is God in tribulations/affliction.

Acts 28:4-6
⁴And when the barbarians saw the venomous beast hang on his hand, they said among themselves, No doubt this man is a murderer, whom, though he hath escaped the sea, yet vengeance suffereth not to live. ⁵And he shook off the beast into the fire, and felt no harm. ⁶Howbeit they looked when he should have swollen, or fallen down dead suddenly: but after they had looked a great while, and saw no harm come to him, they changed their minds, and said that he was a god.

Paul’s experience in Acts 28:1-6 best illustrates this: When a snake bit him, the people assumed he was paying for his evil deeds. Yet, God used this incident to reveal His power and glory. God will glorify Himself in you even when men perceive your situation wrong.

Mathew 27:42
⁴²“He saved others; Himself He cannot save. If He is the King of Israel, let Him now come down from the cross, and we will believe Him.

Similarly, Jesus on the cross was mocked that He should save himself as He saved others, Jesus however was saving the world in this.
The disciples’ questions further reveals a common assumption among men – that suffering must be a result of sin, nevertheless, scripture enlightens us that nothing can separate us from the love of Christ.

Romans 8:38-39
³⁸For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, ³⁹Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

While it is true Jesus dies for our sins, it is true as well that He died because He Loves us.

Prophetic Utterance:

All things work together for my good, as He has loved me with an everlasting love, and so I love like God loves,
My ways, my path is in accordance to His purpose.
Men may not understand, the great measure of Glory you have purposed to show forth in me.
I am God’s creation extending God’s Love to the world.
