Watch for It
John 9:3 (NIV®)
“This happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life.”
Jesus and His disciples were walking through Jerusalem when they saw a man blind from birth. The disciples asked Jesus, “Who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” These folks have been following Jesus for a while, but their questions show they still have a lot to learn. Jesus doesn’t berate them. He simply says, “That’s not the point. This happened so that people could see God at work in his life.” I hope you have space in your faith journey to experience the work of God. I hope you are watching for it in the lives of others. We learn how to come to church, and when to sit and stand and sing along. But I’m not sure we always have room in our hearts for Him to act. Let’s ask God to do something more than just give us theological studies or fun song services. Let’s look for the works of God in our lives and in the lives of people around us. And when we see them, let’s give Him the praise and honor He is due.
Heavenly Father, how mighty are Your works! How great is Your mercy and love toward me! Thank You that You bestow good things on me, even though I am undeserving. Lord, let me see You at work around me, and I will give You all the praise. In Jesus’ name, amen.
