He’s Not Too Busy For Me!

July 24, 2012

John 8:58-9:1; 7 (KJV)

Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.  And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth…and said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.

 

In the closing verses of John 8, Jesus makes one of His “I Am” statements.  These were proclamations which identified Him as the Jehovah of the Old Testament (See Exodus 3:14).  When Jesus said “I Am” He was saying that He was God.

Of course, such statements didn’t endear Him to the religious leaders of His day.  John testifies that they tried to stone Him to death for saying “I Am”.  Narrowly escaping His murder, chapter 9 begins with “as Jesus passed by, He saw a man which was blind…”.  Unbelievably, Jesus stopped and healed Him.  Running for His life He stopped to meet the needs of someone else.

This story shows me a powerful truth: He’s not too busy to help me!  If He’ll stop mid stride while His attempted murderers are still looking for Him to heal a blind man, how much more will He help me as He sits on His throne in glory?!  No one endangers Him today.  No one threatens Him today.  There is nothing that He puts a greater priority on than us.

We sometime don’t come to Him with our prayers because we think “it isn’t that important.  Surely God has more to deal with than my problem.  He has bigger things to work on than my sickness.  There are more important prayers than mine.”  But nothing could be further from the truth. He stops everything to attend to our legitimate needs.

As you go through this day be encourage by this thought “He’s not too busy for me.”
