Do whatever He tells you (John 2:5)
In this passage, we read about Jesus’ first recorded miracle, turning water into wine. Jesus’ mother, Mary, presented the problem to her son that the wedding party did not have enough wine. Then she turned to the servants and said, “Do whatever He tells you.” Mary already knew the importance of obeying God. Notice that Mary didn’t question Jesus. “How are You going to fix the problem?” She just trusted that obedience would bring the answer.
The jars Jesus commanded the servants to fill held twenty to thirty gallons! But the servants filled them to the brim. What jars in your life is He asking you to fill so He can pour out abundant blessing?
Filling the jars in your life can means giving it all you have on the job. “Filling the jars” can mean pouring into the people around you — speaking life-giving words. It can mean being faithful with your tithe and then giving over and above. We can’t out give God! Remember whatever He says, do it! And then step back and watch the power of God perform amazing works in your life!
