Wedding Day

John 2:1-4  On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there.  Now both Jesus and His disciples were invited to the wedding.  And when they ran out of wine, the mother of Jesus said to Him, "They have no wine."  Jesus said to her, "Woman, what does your concern have to do with Me?  My hour has not yet come."

Father, we don't see Jesus as having a problem with others drinking wine but at the same time, we don't see Him raising a glass and making a toast.  The only thing we can know is that He didn't feel a lack of wine was His concern and that His time to drink it had not yet arrived.  Was He referring to the Last Supper with His disciples?  Could He have been referring to the marriage supper of the lamb?  Could He have meant both?  Regardless of whatever unknown meaning You have chosen to keep hidden, we can see a few things.  Jesus' mother knew she could take any concern to Him.  She also knew that He was the only one that could make the situation better.  And despite our lack of understanding as to why we don't see Him picking up a glass, He was invited to the wedding and wanted to be there.  Father, help me to wait on Your perfect timing in all things.  Whether it's surgery, recovery, healing, an answer to prayer, or Your ability to provide for our needs.  You know the hours assigned for all of it and I know that all of Your promises are kept.  Amen
