[The Glory Unveiled]
Then they asked him [the man who had been miraculously healed by Jesus], “What did he [Jesus] do to you? How did He open your eyes?” [ John 9:26 ]
Often we miss the move of God in pursuit of the nitty-gritties that belong to God. The scripture above is an excerpt from a long interaction between the Pharisees and a young man who was born blind but was miraculously healed by Jesus. The Pharisees wanted to know the how of the miracle instead of believing in the who [performer] of it. At times, we try to do the maths, to see how feasible it will be to be blessed of God or healed from an illness. We try to imploy our carnal thinking and philosophies to justify what we want. The reality is that, the secret things belong to God, only the revealed is for us (Deuteronomy 29:29). So that God asked Job whether he knew who marked the earth’s dimensions? (Job 38:5). There are certain realities we cannot comprehend while in this covering of flesh and we must come to terms with such truth. Going the way of the Pharisees in today’s verse of scripture is not wise and humbling. It is a manifestation of pride in the covering of mental acuteness. The “how” belongs to God, we only need to do the “what” while believing in the “who”. This is the reality of faith.
