The scripture for today, April 11, is Exodus 4:11 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:
“Who gave man his mouth? Who makes him deaf or mute? Who gives him sight or makes him blind? Is it not I, the Lord?”
This is a dynamic verse, for it helps answer questions of, “If God is so good, why did he allow me/my relative to become deaf/blind? or crippled, or deaf?”.
God gives each of us an assignment in life. Everyone has something to overcome. The challenge is for us to do it with the smile of faith on our lips.
Paul said in 2nd Corinthians 12:10, “For Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses….For when I am weak, then I am strong!” If God did not believe you or your relative or friend could handle your affliction, he would not allow you to have it. It’s almost as if the more affliction you have, the more faith God is showing in you. And the more we have to rely on God, the more faith we can show in God.
After all, 2nd Corinthians 6:1 says we are workers together with God. This is your assignment. What a privilege!
