In Christ Alone
None can understand us better than the Lord our God. He can easily scan through the crafty intents of men, however He also respects an earnest doubt and an inquisition and clarifies our perceptions.
“And John, calling two of his disciples to him, sent them to Jesus, saying, “Are You the Coming One, or do we look for another?”
“When the men had come to Him, they said, “John the Baptist has sent us to You, saying, ‘Are You the Coming One, or do we look for another?’ ” And that very hour He cured many of infirmities, afflictions, and evil spirits; and to many blind He gave sight.
Jesus answered and said to them, “Go and tell John the things you have seen and heard: that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, the poor have the gospel preached to them. And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me.”
Luke 7:19-23 NKJV
John the Baptist wanted to reconfirm the divinity of Christ and the Lord responded with an affirmation, He encouraged the disciples of John to witness and testify the great works being done by Him which covered the physical and the spiritual healing of many, for there is truly nothing impossible with the Lord our God.
There are countless examples of people who have requested for signs and circumstances (for ex: Moses, Gideon, Thomas the Apostle etc) and the Lord satisfied their quest to know Him more and believe in Him.
From all that God does, there is only one intent that He seeks…..”None should be offended because of Him.” and that is what He mentioned in vs 23 above.
John Piper says “God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.”
Paul encourages us in Phil 4:4 to “Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice.”
What a wonderful God have Who respects our doubts and help us see His glory and behold His beauty. May we rejoice in Him always and find our utmost satisfaction in Him alone.
