“When the head waiter tasted the water (after it had become wine),￼ he did not know where it came from – does the servants who had drawn the water new. He called the groom and told him, ‘Everyone sets out the fine wine first, then, after people are drunk, the inferior. But you have kept the fine wine until now.’ Jesus did this, the first of his signs, in Cana of Galilee. He revealed his glory, and his disciples believed in him.￼”
Instead of turning the 20-30 gallon cisterns of water into the usual late celebration lesser quality wine, Jesus manifested His glory to a select group of people by turning the ordinary into something extraordinary.
This is what He does with us, His followers. He takes our brokenness, our hurts and the everyday triumphs and weaves them all together with His saving grace to make our flawed threads into an amazing tapestry.
God is using and will continue to use your current difficulties for good. How is His presence in the midst of the struggle drawing you to Him? How is God using your trials to draw others to Him, to bring them hope and light?🚦
