Waiting on a Miracle

Meredith Higgins

Have you ever felt like you were waiting on God?

You feel as though you have been patient forever and just don’t know when God will come through.

Maybe God is waiting on you.

John 2 tells of a wedding fiasco at Cana. As Jesus and His disciples attend the wedding, Mary realized that all of the wine that was serving the wedding guests was gone. Seeing as how wine was a very important part of weddings in that time, not having wine was a big deal. When Mary saw Jesus, she walked up to Him and told him about the problem. Jesus had the power to wave a hand and flood the wedding with wine, but did He? No.
Instead, Jesus gave the opportunity to be a part of a miracle to the servants.

“Jesus said to the servants, ‘Fill the jars with water’; so they filled them to the brim. Then He told them, ‘Now draw some (water) out and take it to the master of the banquet.’ They did so, and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine” (John 2:7-9).

Jesus doesn’t just want to perform miracles in your life, He wants you to be a part of them.

Because of the faithful obedience of servants, an entire group of people was blessed with a miracle. Imagine if the servants hadn’t had the faith to take a step of obedience.
Jesus doesn’t just want to perform miracles in your life, He wants you to be a part of them.

How can you be a part of the miracles that God wants for your life?

1. Take a next step

The servants at Cana would have missed a miracle if they hadn’t taken the next step to obey Jesus’ instruction.

2. Have miracle-sized faith

The servants didn’t fill the jars halfway, expecting God to do a miracle - they filled them to the brim. Our faith in taking our next step, however small the step may seem, will lead to God’s blessing. Are you filling the area God calls you to to the brim?

3. Stop waiting and walk

Instead of asking when will God come through, start asking how you can help carry out the miracle He has ready for your life! God’s waiting to let you be a part of a miracle; are you ready to take your next step to join Him?
