KEY SCRIPTURE” John 9:2 KJV And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
Jesus’ disciples, asked Him, who did sin, that this man was born blind? Man is prone to finding someone to blame, for a condition he does not have the solution. These disciples could have kept talking to each other about the man without any positive action to alleviate his predicament.
The Jews normally believe every calamity results from sin. Every child of God has God’s solution with him or her. Remember what the Lord said in Mark 16:17, ” And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;” Unfortunately many children of God still count themselves as ordinary people without the power of God. In John 6:28, the disciples asked, what must we do, to work the works of God? Jesus answered, this is the work of God, that ye believe on Him, He has sent. One thing that builds our faith or boldness is praying more in Holy Spirit. Jude 1:20 KJV” But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,” It is the absence of boldness that prevent most children of God, from doing the greater works spoken by the master.
It is very unfortunate to find Christians who are potentially a storehouse of God’s power accuse and find people to blame, as the disciples of Jesus did. Dearly beloved child of God, know that anytime you find a person in a deplorable state, then God is calling on you to bring His power to bear on that situation. The Lord Jesus was always ready to be an answer to such situations. No such conditions ever took Him by surprise. He was always prepared.
A child of about seven months old fell from a height of about seven to nine meters to a cemented floor. Some doctors happened to be having a medical screening at that very moment, and so they checked the pulse and confirmed the child was dead. I refused to accept that and went into prayer till life began to function in her, as we sent her to the children’s hospital in Accra. I realised that day, that, most people there, were blaming the mother for negligence, but that was not my concern. To me, it was a moment to prevent a mother from sorrowing too much.
I am born of God and endued with power from on high. I am ever ready to answer the devil any time or day he shows up with his questions. God saved me to glorify His name and so I always act on His behalf to do what He would have done if He was here in person.
