When Mary, the mother of Jesus, told Him the host at the marriage feast in Cana had run out of wine, Jesus said, “…that’s not our problem” (John 2:4,Holy Bible, New Living Translation). Mary brushed His comment aside and told the servants to follow His instructions, no matter what He told them to do. Later, when the timing was right, Jesus said “fill the jars with water”. Then He told the servants to dip a sample and take it to the master of the feast.
“A host always serves the best wine first,” he [the host] said. “Then, when everyone has had a lot to drink, he brings out the less expensive wine. But you have kept the best until now!” (Verse 10)
Jesus is never early. Never late. His timing is perfect.
Prayer: Lord, thank You for this example of perfect timing to produce a miracle. Amen.
