September 24, 2020 Spirit Meat Devotional :- ANYTHING HE TELLS YOU TO DO, JUST DO IT – John 2:5
Jesus and his disciples were invited to a marriage in Cana of Galilee. When wine finished during the event, the mother of Jesus came to Him and told Him the problem.
Mary must have had encounters with Jesus while living with Him and observing Him. She knew that Jesus could solve the most impossible problems. Also, she understood the key to unlocking solutions through Jesus – do not argue, do not debate with Him and do not question Him. Rather, anything He tells you, even if it sounds crazy, just do it. And truly, the instruction from Jesus to the servants at the wedding sounded crazy. Jesus told them, “…Fill the water pots with water”. Taking Mary’s counsel, they did.
As soon as they filled the water pots with water, Jesus followed up with another set of instructions. It was equally as ridiculous as the first one. “…Draw out now and take it to the governor of the feast”. Again, remembering Mary’s counsel, the servants obeyed Jesus.
What was the result? They had the best quality of tasteful wine and were preserved from the expense of purchasing new wine.
We should learn from the advice of Mary. Take the instructions of divine leading from the Holy Spirit. You cannot choose to obey divine instructions only when they make sense to you. Most of God’s instructions will not make sense, but they will make faith. Seek counsel by verifying your divine leading from your pastors and leaders in the body of Christ. Make sure your divine leading agrees with the patterns of holiness and the nature of God’s spirit. Do not argue, debate or question the instruction, just do it.
PRAYER: Father, Your instructions may not agree with my mind, but when I know it is from You, I’ll do it, in Jesus name, Amen!
