I listened to Beth Moore teach today. Her topic was The Jars of Life: What's In Yours? Visit http://www.lifetoday.org/site/PageServer?pagename=bth_media to listen for free. She taught on Jesus' first miracle when he turned water into wine at the wedding at Cana. The story is found in John 2. Mary, the mother of Jesus, said 5 simple words to her son. "They have no more wine." She had complete faith that Jesus could handle the situation. She didn't have to tell him HOW!
Imagine that. Telling Jesus our problem and that's it. No suggested solutions. Can I do that? Can I stop at just telling Jesus my problem.
Jesus, I have no more ______________.
That's how I prayed this morning. I just told Jesus what I was out of. And then I stopped. I didn't tell him how to solve my need. So now I wait to see how he chooses to answer.
What are YOU out of? You fill in the blank.
Jesus, I have no more _______________
Here are some of the things you might have written:
hunger for the Word
Or you just might have written, "Jesus, I have no more to give."
Whatever you wrote, the story of John 2 tells us that Jesus can fill us -- and fill us to overflowing. That was his first miracle, and he continues to perform it.
Tell him what you need today. And let Jesus determine how to supply exactly what you need.
