Daily D – John 2:5

by | Aug 30, 2021 | Daily D | 0 comments

“Do whatever he tells you,” his mother told the servants.
JOHN 2:5 (CSB)

—————————————————————————

Jesus always knew the right thing to do. This gave Mary, his mother, confidence to say what she did in this situation that otherwise would have gone from bad to worse to completely humiliating. 

This is a good reminder. When we do not know what to do next, when we do not know what to do in an urgent moment, we can always ask Jesus. 

Jesus always knows the right thing to do.

Jesus will always lead us to do the right thing. He never leads falsely. He never leads us astray. He provides both direction and strength. Psalm 23:1 tells us that “The LORD is my shepherd; I have what I need.” Verse 3 says, “He renews my life; he leads me along the right paths for his name’s sake.”

Jesus does all things well. On this occasion, the water he turned into wine was the best of the entire celebration (see verse 10). Of course it was. Genesis 1:12 says, “The earth produced vegetation: seed-bearing plants according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.” Our Father in heaven is the giver of all good things. All of those good things were created through Jesus, “and apart from him not one thing was created that has been created,” (John 1:3). 

It took turning water into wine for some people to begin to appreciate Jesus for who he is. Mary was way ahead of them. We are all still catching up to her. 

Jesus always knew the right thing to do.

Jesus always knows the right thing to do.

It is always a good time to turn to Jesus when we do not know what to do. He who created all things, he who takes what is before him and blesses and multiplies it making it better than it ever could have been otherwise, is still working his wonders for those who are beginning to see him for who he is. 

To you, who is Jesus? John’s Gospel shows us Jesus in all of his goodness, all of his glory. Every paragraph and page is a savory delight. Walk with Jesus through these pages. Listen for his voice. Observe his behavior. Learn just how good it is to “do whatever he tells you.”

I will do whatever Jesus tells me.

Our Father, thank you for these words of truth and life. Thank you for the grace they communicate. Thank you for the revelation they provide. Help us to seek Jesus for who he is. Teach us to do whatever he says in eager anticipation of the best that life can be. Amen.

Job 40:6-14

6 Then the LORD spoke to Job out of the storm:

7 “Brace yourself like a man;
I will question you,
and you shall answer me.

8 “Would you discredit my justice?
Would you condemn me to justify yourself?
9 Do you have an arm like God’s,
and can your voice thunder like his?
10 Then adorn yourself with glory and splendor,
and clothe yourself in honor and majesty.
11 Unleash the fury of your wrath,
look at all who are proud and bring them low,
12 look at all who are proud and humble them,
crush the wicked where they stand.
13 Bury them all in the dust together;
shroud their faces in the grave.
14 Then I myself will admit to you
that your own right hand can save you

Daily D – Job 32:1-5

Job 29:21-25 21 “People listened to me expectantly,
waiting in silence for my counsel.
22 After I had spoken, they spoke no more;
my words fell gently on their ears.
23 They waited for me as for showers
and drank in my words as the spring rain.
24 When I smiled at them, they scarcely believed it;
the light of my face was precious to them.
25 I chose the way for them and sat as their chief;
I dwelt as a king among his troops;
I was like one who comforts mourners.
