John 9:7 “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.”

To complete the healing process of the blind man, Jesus asked him to go wash in the pool of Siloam. The question that came to my mind while reading this was; Why Siloam? 

The word Siloam simply means “Sent”. Friend, if Jesus cannot send you, he cannot heal you! Everything God will do for a believer is wrapped in instructions. If you cannot obey by being sent, heaven will find it difficult to help you.

This blind man could not see, but he was ever willing to be sent. He was ready to obey instructions from Jesus and run errands for him. He couldn’t see but he could walk. He used the ability he has to get rid of his disability.

He didn’t allow his disability to stop him from being sent. One other thing that baffled me with this man is the fact that he didn’t give any excuses to Jesus. He could have told Jesus he can’t see, how does he expect him to get to Siloam, in order words why would Jesus be “Sending” him?

We’ve seen a lot of agile folks who are not blind giving all manner of excuses when they were sent. You hear men like Moses complaining of being a stammerer. That was a ridiculous excuse if you ask me. 

How do you tell the One that created the tongue, mouth and even originated speech that you cannot talk?

You hear men like Gideon say:

Judges 6:15 “And he said unto him, Oh my Lord, wherewith shall I save Israel? behold, my family [is] poor in Manasseh, and I [am] the least in my father’s house.”

Gideon said he lacked money and he’s also very small. Those are excuses we give when we are “sent”. Excuses will always keep us on the same spot and prevent us from entering into the miraculous. 

Friend, what excuses are you giving when “sent”? It’s high time you discard them and head for Siloam,

To be continued…
