Turn it Over

John 2:5

“Do whatever He tells you,” His mother told the servants.

Mary, Jesus, and the disciples were invited to a wedding, where the host ran out of wine. This would have been a very embarrassing event for the new couple, so Mary turned the matter over to Jesus. When she told the servants to do whatever He said, she left Him fully in charge of the problem. Whatever He did was fine with her.

When we turn things over to Jesus, we should do the same. We should do whatever He tells us to do and trust the result to Him. Many times, however, when we turn something over to God, we want Him to handle the matter the way we expect. When we submit a problem to Him, we put Him in charge and follow His instructions. In that way, we position ourselves for a miracle.

Do you need a miracle today? If so, turn the matter completely over to Jesus, and do whatever He tells you to do. Give Him complete control, and allow Him to do what He does best. Take your hand off the matter, along with your concern. The miracle you need will happen under His charge and by His hand. Rejoice in the fact that you serve a miracle working God, and know He is working on your behalf.

Have a blessed day!
