“His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.”
The wise words of His mother were heard by the servants at the marriage in Cana of Galilee.
Can you imagine their reaction?
Perhaps confusion or maybe anticipation.
She obviously knew something they did not.
There were six waterpots of stone nearby.
“Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water…”
The servants had a choice to make.
Do they ignore both Jesus and Mary’s instructions or choose to follow them?
“…And they filled them up to the brim.”
Not only did they obey, they anticipated that something marvelous was about to take place. Why else would they have filled them to the brim?
If we want to see the impossible, we have to be willing to not only do what we are told, but to the best we can, and then allow Him to take over.
“And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.”
It is not our ability that matters, but rather our obedience.
How willing are you to obey whatever He says?
“And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it.”
He allowed them to have a part in the miracle.
They had no part in performing it, but He gave them the opportunity to do more than just see something miraculous. They not only witnessed the impossible, but imagine the faces of six servants as each of them dipped into what was once clear water, and now came out red like crimson. The miracle was in their hand.
What might the Lord allow us to be a part of if we were simply willing to allow Him to get the glory?
