KEY SCRIPTURE: John 2:7 KJV “Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim.”
Please read John 2:6-9
After the mother of Jesus asked the servants to act on every instruction the master gives them, they also went to Jesus expecting to receive certain instructions. The Lord asked them to fill the water pots with water. The servants quickly got them filled. Please note, those water pots were dish washing pots. They were not clean water meant for consumption. After they had filled them to the brim, He asked them to draw some and give it to the master of ceremonies to drink. Please come to think about this, that since it was not wholesome water, it would have been difficult to pick some and give the master of the ceremony, yet these servants were just ready to carry out any word Jesus tells them. I believe when they drew some for the master of the ceremony, it was still ordinary water, but just before he drank it, it became wine. Their obedience brought their results.
Life would have been easy for most people if they would just learn to follow instructions.
Someone defined faith as simply obeying what the Lord says.
When The Lord was at the tomb of Lazarus in John 11:39 & 40 he asked the sisters to role away the stone. They said he has been dead four days, and so it will be stinking. Jesus had to say that if they believe they would see the glory of God. Their unreadiness to move away the stone meant that, they did not believe…Their brother Lazarus could only be raised after they had rolled away, they stone.
Miracles don’t happen out of the blue; they are worked out. They come by following instructions of faith. Are you expecting a financial miracle start giving, in obedience to the scripture that says, Luke 6:38 KJV “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom…? ” In Mark 5 when Jairus who had invited Jesus to heal her daughter head she was dead, the Lord told him, do not be afraid only believe. The Lord went to the house and said to the mourners, why these noise and tears, the girl is only sleeping. He then went to where she laid, and drove everyone from there except, the Father and His three disciples. It was after these acts of faith, that He raised the girl. What are the steps of faith you have to take to finally see your miracle? The occasion would offer those steps; make sure you take each step with full confidence in God.
THOUGHT: YOUR OBEDIENCE OF FAITH WOULD GIVE BIRTH TO YOUR MIRACLE.
John 11:39 KJV Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days. Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?
John 2:5 KJV” His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.”
One thought on “MIRACLES FOLLOW OBEDIENCE”
Obedience is the key to His glory.
