Weekday devotionals for Christians

He Didn’t Even Ask

John 9:1-7
(1)  And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.
(2)  And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
(3)  Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
(4)  I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
(5)  As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
(6)  When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay,
(7)  And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.

I will do a few devotionals on this story in John 9; and today will start it out.

Here we see Jesus healing a blind man and I would like to point out a few interesting things concerning this:

1. The man never asked Jesus to heal him. This is odd because we see in other parts of the Bible where 2 blind men heard that Jesus passed by their way and they called out and begged Jesus to heal them. Begging and asking are 2 things that blind people do well…especially back in the Bible days. I like how Jesus did not wait for this man to ask, He healed him even though the man did not asked.

My thought on this is that Jesus knows our needs before we ask…if we ask. God takes notice of us and is greatly concerned with our needs. Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows. Matthew 10:29-31. Here is another one: But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. Matthew 6:7-8. We should still ask in prayer because we are commanded to ask.

My point is that God knows what you need and will supply all of your needs according to His riches. Even though the man never asked Jesus to heal him, Jesus healed him anyway! Be encouraged, God is watching over you and loves you greatly! Let’s love Him back and be very grateful for what He is doing in our lives!
