Today's Verse

"Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that

the works of God should be made manifest in him." (John 9:3)

Today's Thought

The thing we desire the most . . . to please our Heavely Father, to live a

life which stands out as being contrary to the ways of the world. Just as

the moon has no light in and of itself, we cannot truly "shine" without

reflecting the glory of the Lord in all we say and do. We have no ability

to shine on our own . . . we only reflect the light of the Sun!

The blind man was not responsible for his situation because of any sin in

his life . . . his parents were not held accountable, nor his grandparents,

etc. He was blind so that the Father could be glorified in his life.

Ask yourself a question . . . why am I the way I am? The answer is simple .

. . that the Lord might be glorified through our lives!. God, the Creator,

in His omniscience, knew exactly what you needed to be in order to complete

His plans for all of creation!

The next time you look in the mirror, be sure to understand that God made

you to be who you are . . . praise Him because you are "fearfully and

wonderfully made" . . . in the likeness of His image . . . that He would be

glorified in you!

Today's Prayer

Father, my desire is that You would be glorified in my life . . . that I

would become content in who you made me so I could fulfill Your purposes in

my life. Lord, help me to appreciate my uniqueness and to use every one of

my shortcomings to bring glory to You in some way. Thank you, Lord, for

making me special . . . after Your image . . . for Your glory! Amen!

Have a blessed day!
