He entered the world blind and now was fully grown. He only knew darkness from the moment his mother gave birth to him. The Scriptures tell us that his blindness was not caused by the sin of his parents or by the sins of the man. His blindness from the foundation of time had the sole purpose of glorifying the Lord.
This man didn't receive beforehand the heads up on the Lord's reason
for his blindness. An angel had not warned his parents about their
son's future to one day receive sight. They didn't receive any vision
regarding the purpose this happened to their son. They carried these
unanswered questions with them throughout the years. Would they have of
lived any differently if they had been told what the future held?
The Lord healed the man when the time was right for the Lord to be
glorified. No matter what our difficulties are in life, they serve the
same purpose. We wait on the Lord for His perfect plan and in it give
glory to Him. He is completely trustworthy with every aspect of our
lives and may we honor Him with it.
