I am a person who finds it special that God speaks to me and humbling to think that God might use me to speak to others.

Scripture:   John (NIV) 2:5  His (Jesus) mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he (Jesus) tells you.”  

John 2:7  Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water.”

John 2:8  Then he told them, “Now draw some out and take to the master of the banquet.”   

John 2:10  (the response of the master of the banquet)  “…you have saved the best till now!”  

Observation:   Someone had miss-planned; the wine ran out before the wedding celebration was over.  Mary, Jesus mother, must have been a relative because she felt responsible to do something.  She did not ask about a place to buy wine and then send someone to buy more wine; she sent the servants to Jesus.  Verse five gives her instructions.   Not only were Mary’s instructions simple and easy to follow, Jesus instructions in verses 7 and 8 were also simple and easy to follow.

Application:  Often the most profound things are the most simple.  I have found Jesus instructions to be easy to understand.  I may not always know how He will take care of His part, but I always understand my part.  His instructions are always simple.  His instructions are never beyond my ability to do. 

Prayer:   Lord, it is simple—I am to just do whatever you tell me. May you find me a faithful servant.  Amen
