In God’s time
“On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Now both Jesus and His disciples were invited to the wedding. And when they ran out of wine, the mother of Jesus said to Him, ‘They have no wine.’
“Jesus said to her, ‘Woman, what does your concern have to do with Me? My hour has not yet come.’
His mother said to the servants, ‘Whatever He says to you, do it.’
Now there were set there six waterpots of stone, according to the manner of purification of the Jews, containing twenty or thirty gallons apiece. Jesus said to them, ‘Fill the waterpots with water.’ And they filled them up to the brim. And He said to them, ‘Draw some out now, and take it to the master of the feast.’ And they took it. When the master of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and did not know where it came from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew), the master of the feast called the bridegroom. And he said to him, ‘Every man at the beginning sets out the good wine, and when the guests have well drunk, then the inferior. You have kept the good wine until now!’
This beginning of signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory; and His disciples believed in Him.” (John 2:1-11)
This word speaks about Jesus’ very first miracle! It caught my attention in various ways. Observe the following points:
- Jesus was invited to a wedding. Whenever He was called, He never ignored it.He is always present during every moment of our lives.
- If He was at a wedding, they didn’t need to be in church or in the presence of pastors. He was there as He is here now, right by your side.
- The wine was an element that couldn’t be missing from a wedding; it was a symbol of joy. However, the people realised that they were running out of wine, and Mary (Jesus’ mother) immediately came to Jesus and told Him what had happened. The answer was of extreme authority: “My time has not yet come.”
This is a key point I want to share with you all.This declaration shows that the Lord has a right time to act. It’s not when we want or when we think it is the opportune time, but it is rather when Jesus wants.
This is the reason why we must always be connected to the Father. Our prayers are never forgotten; they are being analysed and we will surely receive the awaited miracle in God’s time.
Many people think that it’s enough to be a “goody two shoes” in order to enter heaven. That’s not enough; it requires daily sacrifice.
Think thoroughly about this word and allow God to always be the first in your life. That way, we will surely be His witnesses in this world!
May God bless you.
