TESTimony

As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked him, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?" "Neither this man nor his parents sinned," said Jesus, "but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life. (John 9:1-3 NIV)

Do you have setbacks and inadequacies? Are you a little different than the rest? Do you often wonder why must you go through so many trials and tribulations? Do you feel like you are the only one going through? Do you ever find yourself wondering what you did wrong or find yourself simply crying out “why me"?

Well, I am here to tell you that you are going through so that you can get through and your Father in heaven can be glorified. The word tells us that we are overcomers, more than conquerors and great because He that it in us is great. But if you had no obstacle and no battles what would you overcome? What would you conqueror?

The blind man in the text was born without sight. The people reasoned that it was a curse of the Lord that deemed him as such. However, we know that he was made blind so that Jesus could restore his sight. You are poor so that he can make you rich, alone so that He can comfort you, sick so that he can heal you and suffering so that He can allow you to reign with him. This is only a test that you are going through so that you can come out with the TESTtimony and God can be glorified.

Jesus said if He be lifted up, He will draw all men unto Him. So as you go through know that all things work together for the good of those that love God. This is all for your good and more importantly for His glory.
