John 2: 1-11
On the third day there was a wedding at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. 2 Jesus also was invited to the wedding with his disciples. 3 When the wine ran out, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.” 4 And Jesus said to her, “Woman, what does this have to do with me? My hour has not yet come.” 5 His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.” 6 Now there were six stone water jars there for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons. 7 Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. 8 And he said to them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the feast.” So they took it. 9 When the master of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and did not know where it came from (though the servants who had drawn the water knew), the master of the feast called the bridegroom 10 and said to him, “Everyone serves the good wine first, and when people have drunk freely, then the poor wine. But you have kept the good wine until now.” 11
Jesus is the master of all situations. As long as you have committed your life to him and daily seek to do His will, you have nothing to fear. The hour of the Lord comes, and when it comes, situations that seemed impossible becomes possible. Jesus understood there was a need for more wine, He understood His mother needed Him to act urgently, yet he waited for the appointed hour.
Dear friend, Jesus understands that situation that has lingered so long, He understands people are looking at you, He understands there is a need for Him to act. Keep trusting and believing in His ability to deliver you for the hour of the Lord is coming and when His hour shall come, the trouble you see today you shall see no more.
The mother of Jesus on hearing the words of Jesus never gave up, she instructed the servants to standby and do all Jesus instructs them. What is the Lord saying to you concerning that situation? Many times we think God is far from us in time of trouble whereas He assures us in Psalm 46: 1 that He is our present help in trouble. Indeed the Lord is very close to the brokenhearted, the issue is most times we are too busy focusing on the problems rather than on the one with the solution. Have some rest today, forget about that issue and gaze upon the Lord. As Christians, we must always wait (not in a rush to go) at the foot the master for at His foot lies solutions to our problems.
I pray for you in the name of Jesus for the grace to change your focus from your problems into gazing at the face of Jesus, and as you begin to look upon Him for solutions, I declare an end to that problem in Jesus name. Amen!
Trust and Obey
When we walk with the Lord
In the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our way;
While we do His good will,
He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.
Trust and obey,
For there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus,
But to trust and obey.
Not a shadow can rise,
Not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt or a fear,
Not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.
Not a burden we bear,
Not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay;
Not a grief or a loss,
Not a frown or a cross,
But is blest if we trust and obey.
But we never can prove
The delights of His love,
Until all on the altar we lay;
For the favor, He shows,
And the joy He bestows,
Are for them who will trust and obey.
Then in fellowship sweet
We will sit at His feet,
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way;
What He says we will do;
Where He sends, we will go,
Never fear, only trust and obey.
