Text: John 2:6-8
“For we walk by faith, not by sight.” II Corinthians 5:7
I am amazed by the faith of the servants at the marriage in Cana of Galilee. The problem on ground was the sudden lack of wine yet Jesus told them to fill the pots with water! ““Fill the waterpots with water.” AND THEY FILLED THEM UP TO THE BRIM.”” John 2:7. Faith doesn’t usually make sense. Like someone said, “Where reason can’t wade, faith swims across”. Now, the second instruction even seems more ‘unreasonable’. “And He said to them, “Draw some out now, and take it to the master of the feast.” AND THEY TOOK IT.” John 2:8. Notice the emphasis that I placed on their responses to the two commands of faith. The servants obeyed the instructions without questioning. This one appears as the most ‘foolish’ thing to do. Now, they were to draw some out and serve the master of the feast. They didn’t try to taste the water before serving nor did they consider the implications if the guests found that it wasn’t wine! Their motto was ‘the command of faith must be obeyed’.
Friends, there is a command of faith that you must obey to have your miracle. Jesus told the man with a withered hand to stretch it forth; the disciples to give something; Peter to come out of the boat to Him; Peter to launch out into the deep (Matt 12:13, 14:29; Luke 5:4; Mark 6:37). You need to ask yourself, ‘What is the command of faith that I need to obey?’ Then, move away from the sense knowledge to act upon God’s word and you will see that mountain before you move in Jesus name. Hallelujah!
1. Father, as I pray and fast, I also receive grace to obey the commands of faith in Jesus name.
2. I move away from sense knowledge and doubt to act on God’s word in Jesus name.
1. My motto from now is ‘The commands of faith must be obeyed without questioning or analyzing’
2. Reason causes mountains to stand strong but faith causes it to flee.
