John 9:9 some said; this is He: others said; He is like him: But He said; I am He.

What a great testimony. I was pondering this verse of the bible after listening to a ministration in which that verse of the scripture was used. I immediately started to prophecy such good tidings into my life, such a miracle that people that knew me before will not know me again. The explosive miracle, such that when others are doubting the transformation, only I will say “don’t worry, it is me!”

Such is the act of God, he is forever in control, and because God is God, then nothing happens without His knowledge and permission. While it is difficult to imagine why God allows some painful things to happen, His character revealed in the Bible and through the testing of generations, leads us to the conclusion that He is willing and able to sustain you during the worst of times. "We were crushed and completely overwhelmed, and we thought we would never live through it. In fact, we expected to die. But as a result, we learned not to rely on ourselves, but on God who can raise the dead." (2 Corinthians 1:8,9).

See, whatever we suffer now is nothing compared to the Glory He will give us later." (Romans 8:18) "He will keep you strong right up to the end, and He will keep you free from all blame on the great day when our Lord Jesus Christ returns.” 1 Corinthians 1:8. He has not given up on you! So don't give up on him also. Remember, he said in Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord. "They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you to an expected end." Ask God to reveal His purpose in allowing this difficulty in your life. That's a legitimate question to ask. Often, the answer comes in the process of dealing with your circumstance. Whenever trouble comes your way, let it be an opportunity for joy. For when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grows, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be strong in character and ready for anything." James 1:2-4.

Think of Joseph's betrayal by his brothers, it lead him to an exalted position in the Land of Egypt. If he were not so persecuted he would not have attained such a glorious post and we probably will never have heard about him, Genesis 50:19,20.
Are you going through tough times, terrible pains, are you deaf, dumb or blind like that man in John 9:9, then today I believe you will sing a new song of hope and people that knew you before will not know you again after the Lord Jesus is through working on you. Then you will those that doubt, that I am The ONE.
