God is In control of all things

A handicapped woman once asked if she and her handicapped husband should have children. She was afraid that if she did get pregnant, she would bring a handicapped child into the world and would not be able to cope with it or the stress of having a child would be too much for her and her husband even though they both wanted a child desperately.

Exodus 4:11....11But the LORD answered, " Who makes people able to speak or makes them deaf or unable to speak? Who gives them sight or makes them blind? Don't you know that I am the one who does these things? 12Now go! When you speak, I will be with you and give you the words to say."

13Moses begged, " LORD, please send someone else to do it."

14The LORD became irritated with Moses and said:

What about your brother Aaron, the Levite? I know he is a good speaker. He is already on his way here to visit you, and he will be happy to see you again. 15-16Aaron will speak to the people for you, and you will be like me, telling Aaron what to say. I will be with both of you as you speak, and I will tell each of you what to do. 17Now take this walking stick and use it to perform miracles.

That is what Moses needed to hear. God would find a way for him to speak to the people through his brother Aaron.

God Knew that Moses might feel he had a problem with the job He put before him so found a way to do it thru his brother Aaron. Just as God will find a way for any parents who has a handicapped child to work through things.

We all must look upon the chilren God gives us as a blessing. Not something that will further handicap us. God controls all things, even what some of us might consdier genetic mistakes.

God values a persons inner beauty and their relationship with Him more than he does physical beauty and intellgence.


  1. How true.
    God Reveals His Greatness and His Beauty in many ways, not just in the physical but also in the heart, mind, and soul.
    Great post!

  2. Beautiful post Garnet, I too agree that God makes no mistakes. All children are his gift to us and I have learned more about love from handicapped children than anyone. Take care my friend and stay well....:-) Hugs
