THEIR ACCUSATIONS WILL WORK OUT FOR YOUR GOOD

Read: JOHN 9: 1-41 

Meditation verse: 

“And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Rabbi who sinned, this man or His parents,  that he was born blind?” (John 9:2) 

Jesus’ disciples began questioning Him as they passed by a certain blind man.  They wanted to know why the born was born blind. Was he the one who sinned  or was it his parents? They had concluded that the man was in that condition  because of the sin he or his parents committed. In responding, Jesus explained  that neither the man nor his parents had sinned, but he was in that condition so  that the awesome power of God could be made manifest through him. Jesus  then proceeded to restore his sight. Perhaps, He would not have stopped to heal  the man, had the disciples not began debating his condition? 

Similarly, Jobs friends accused and judged him when calamity befell him. They  said to him “is not your wickedness great, and your iniquity without end?” (Job  22:5). But God turned the tides around. He asked them to go to Job and offer  for themselves a burnt offering so that he could pray for them. The same friends  who had accused him were now knelling before him. “And the Lord restored  Job’s losses when he prayed for his friends. Indeed, the Lord gave Job twice as  much as he had before” (Job 42: 10). Joseph’s brothers accused him of wanting  to usurp their seniority. They called him a dreamer and sold him to slavery.  Again, we see God turning the tides around. Joseph ended up in Potiphar house  and then in prison and eventually as prime minister of Egypt. And the same  brothers who had despised him, came, and knelt before him. “Then his brothers  also went and fell down before his face, and they said, ‘behold, we are your  servants” (Genesis 50:16).  

God can turn the tides in your favour when you are wrongly accused. He is the  righteous judge who will always justify you. When others deride, accuse, or put  you down, He can take all of that and turn it around for your good. If you are  currently being ridiculed or have been unfairly treated, allow God to fight for  you. And soon you will say like Joseph: “but as for you, you meant evil against  me; but God meant it for good…” (Genesis 50:20).

*Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?*

He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest.

Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:

Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.

If you prayed this prayer, send me an email at rockteachingministry@gmail.com. I would love to pray with you personally and send you a copy of my book; ‘Living the Life’ to encourage you as you begin your new life in Christ.
