He answered and said, “A Man called Jesus made clay and anointed my eyes and said to me, ‘Go to the pool of Siloam and wash.’ So I went and washed, and I received sight.”
We all have something that God has done for us that we didn’t deserve. That is because God is so good. He does good things for us even when we don’t ask for them.
Jesus happened to walk by and see a man who was blind from birth. From birth this man was told he would never be like everyone else. He lived a life of no hope for a brighter and better future.
The disciples asked Jesus who sinned his parents or himself that he was born that way. Jesus replied and let them know and the man know that his blindness was for the glory of God. And instantly Jesus made a cure for blindness and gave him sight.
John chapter 9 is loaded with truths about Jesus and what Jesus can do. One of the great things about Jesus is he does things for us even when we don’t ask. The blind man never asked for his sight. He never asked for mercy. But Jesus did it anyways.
Is there anything that God has blessed you with and you didn’t even ask for it? God wants to bless us even when we don’t deserve it or ask for it. He does it so we will praise and honor Him.
People need to witness the mighty works of God in our personal lives. People need to see and hear how good God has been to us. Take a moment and think about how good God has been to you and give Him praise.
Lord, thank You for being so kind to me. Thank You for giving me what I don’t deserve. You know what I need even before I ask. You are a good, good Father.
