God has Saved the Best for NOW!

I can’t seem to quit studying John 2:1-11 which is the story of the wedding in Cana of Galilee.   It is the place Jesus performed his first miracle.  I’ve read many versions, looked at different aspects and have been mulling over every word. 

As I reflect on the occasion Jesus chose to reveal Himself, I am fascinated that He chose a wedding.   I wonder how frequently people ran out of wine during wedding celebrations in Bible times.  They often went as long as a week.  I’m thankful that has changed in our culture. 

It really spoke to me that Jesus cared about what was going on with this family.  They had given to their guests till they had nothing left.   Jesus was willing to keep this family from being embarrassed. 

In your marriage, if you have given to each other and others till you have nothing left to give, I believe God wants to reveal His glory to you.     

Jesus told the servants at this wedding to do some crazy things like put water in jars and serve it to the master of the banquet.  The servants didn’t know the water would turn to wine, but they listened anyway.   

God may show you something to do that does not make sense.  Don't allow your logic to keep you from obeying His word.  The servants had to be willing to do what Jesus said to see the miracle.  

I believe God wants to intervene NOW in your lives.  Verse 10 says Jesus "saved the best till now."  I pray God moves in your situation today - whatever it is and brings you His BEST.
