“What does that have to do with you and me, woman?” Jesus asked. “My hour has not yet come.” “Do whatever he tells you,” his mother told the servants. Now six stone water jars had been set there for Jewish purification. Each contained twenty or thirty gallons. “Fill the jars with water,” Jesus told them. So they filled them to the brim. Then he said to them, “Now draw some out and take it to the headwaiter.” And they did.
John 2:4-8 CSB
Here’s the thing about life as a Christian … According to Ecclesiastes 3 we are on a different time-clock than those who do not believe. Why ? Because we have to wait.
How long did it take Jesus to be raised – 3 days (1 Corinthians 15:4)
How many days did Esther fast – 3 days ( Esther 4:15)
How many days did Paul fast after his conversion – 3 days (Acts 9:9)
And even still there are many stories in the Bible of those who had to wait YEARS like Joseph and decades like David for their time.
One of the worst things someone can do in life and ministry is move ahead of God. The Bible tells us in Deuteronomy 1:45,
When you returned, you wept before the Lord , but he didn’t listen to your requests or pay attention to you.
Deuteronomy 1:45 CSB
That is the consequence of moving ahead or without God ! He won’t hear you ! So in this season just be STILL ! BE STILL and know that He is God. Stop worrying so much about your life and learn the power of a quiet spirit (Psalms 131).
Lord help me to be content and not worry about things that do not concern me. Help me to focus on prayer (Psalms 91) and trusting you through the process. In Jesus Name I pray thank God Amen.
In Jesus Name,
