Re:Verse reading–John 9:1-7, 13-41 (day five) Jesus heard that they had put him out, and finding him…  John‬ ‭9:35‬ ‭

It may be the sweetest part of this interaction with Jesus, the second encounter  between Jesus and the man who was formerly blind. The first interaction resulted in physical healing, courage, and boldness. That encounter also caused stress, trouble, and conflict. The scripture says “they put him out”.  Do you sometimes feel it too?  See John 15.  “If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also.”

So in the midst of the difficulty and isolation Jesus finds him (again).  Sound familiar? “God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.”Psalm 46:1   “For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:6

Maybe an encounter with the Living God (again) is just what we need today. Whatever the need or circumstance, ask Him to come near and find you to continue that work in your heart and mind!

One thought on “Again”

  1. As I understand, Jesus revealed his devine identity through this statement, “While I am in the world, I am the Light of the world.” I guess a real encounter with the Living God will reconfirm who is in control of our lives and the universe.

    In the midst of the difficulty and isolation, we should be reminded to turn to God and ask Him to guide us through those difficulties and darkness. He is our Light and the Light of the world. We should not forget!
