god doesn’t punish
Do you ever wonder if you’re being punished? Is the season you’re in so difficult you think God might be punishing you?
As Terrie and I were talking last week, we spoke of the ninth chapter in John, where Jesus heals a man born blind.
The scripture says, “His disciples asked him, ‘Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents that he was born blind?'”
“Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life.”
Huge sigh. Literally.
Discussion: If you’re walking a difficult season of life right now and simply can. not. figure out why … could you rest in the fact that God may be using you to encourage others?
