Born Disabled to Manifest the Works of God

Born Disabled to Manifest the Works of God

A blind man from birth accepted the blindness as permanent and spent his life begging for help. Likewise lame, slow learners, allergic, dumb, deaf,and every birth defected one are living it as a forever condition.
Recently my mindset was changed hopefully forever to accept the terminology 'yesterday, today,and forever', to only apply to Jesus Christ.
I was reading the book of John located in the Holy Bible. In the ninth chapter the question was asked 'who has sinned,this man or his parents'?

King James Version (KJV)
[A Public Domain Bible] [KJV at Zondervan] [Zondervan]

John 9
1And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.

2And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?

3Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.

4I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

5As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

6When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay,

7And 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.

8The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?

9Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am he.

10Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened?

11He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.
Jesus healed a blind man even though the man was born that way in order to manifest the works of God. Since I believe Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever I will also believe that birth defects of any fashion whether a part be missing or broken can be healed and manifest as a work of God who created us in the first place.
