Blind in the Trials - Spiritual Growth Encouragement Series


Bible Verses: John 9:1-3

“As Jesus was walking along, he saw a man who had been blind from birth. ‘Rabbi,’ his disciples asked him, ‘why was this man born blind? Was it because of his own sins or his parents’ sins?’ ’It was not because of his sins or his parents’ sins,’ Jesus answered. ‘This happened so the power of God could be seen in him. "

Reflect and Respond:

In your trials today, God wants you to know that He sees you and He is with you: "Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand." Isaiah 41:10. How can we pray for you today?


Father God, I pray that I would be a light to others even as You are a light to me. May I know your presence today and share your peace. Amen.

I thank God every day for his abundant blessings upon and around me. Pray that he will continue to lead me into his purpose for me and guide me to be his hands and feet here on earth. I know he is with me and pray that he will help me get through this performance assessment successfully.

Thank you Madison for sharing your personal trials with us. What a source of Light and Strength in Jesus you are, young Lady. In my own personal trials right now, which are great, I take strength and courage from your Faith in our Heavenly Lord and Saviour. I am Praying for you and I gratefully accept your offer of Prayer for me and each of us. How very Beautiful and Lovely you are. May the Light of Jesus shine through each of us in whatever way our Lord sees fit. All according to His Divine and Sovereign plan. Thank you.

Eva, God did not do these things, yet He is working to Heal and Comfort you through His Holy Spirit to help you overcome your troubled heart. God works All things together for our Goodness. Romans 8:28
He weaves His web of Goodness, Grace, and Mercy into our very darkest times. We are often brought to the Lord through our own personal tragedies. I know that I was. Try not to dwell on "Why?" Isaiah 55:8,9 tells us that God's thoughts and Ways are above ours, so we are not always able to understand "why?" in this earthly life. We must cast our burdens upon the Lord, Trust in Him and accept His Grace and Mercy to Heal. He has known our steps since before we were knitted together in our Mothers wombs. Both Jeremiah, Isaiah and the Psalms tell us this. He knows every hair upon our head. Have Faith, Eva, and Know that All is within His control and according to His Divine and Sovereign plan. He does not make mistakes, He does not lie, He is constant, and His Love for us is incomparable. May He Bless you with His Peace and Joy. It is truly found only in Him. I am Praying for you
