The Best for Last

John 2:9-12  When the master of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and did not know where it came from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew), the master of the feast called the bridegroom.  And he said to him, "Every man at the beginning sets out the good wine, and when the guests have well drunk, then the inferior.  You have kept the good wine until now!"  This beginning of signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory; and His disciples believed in Him.  After this He went down to Capernaum, He, His mother, His brothers, and His disciples; and they did not stay there many days.

Father, typically it seems You do the unexpected or the inverse of what people would do without Your influence or leading.  What's so monumentally shocking is that You somehow still manage to build on what we already see as enormous and yet are able to retain the best for last leaving us slackjawed with awe and wonder.  It's almost as if You have taken, "Go big or go home" to a level that no mind woule even think possible.  Help me see that the little things now that You are entrusting to me are the things that will grow because of Your ability to multiply not my own, that every triumph, victory, and success will always be Yours, and that as You decide I am faithful with what I've been given, that You will give me more.  Amen.
