THE MESSAGE

FIVE KEYS TO YOUR MIRACLE : from the wedding at Cana

1.INVITATION

John 2:1,2

If we want to experience a miracle, we must first invite Jesus into our lives.Jesus was invited to the wedding at Cana. If Jesus had not been invited to that wedding the miracle would not have taken place. We must invite Jesus into every area of our lives. We must seek His blessing and His guidance in every aspect of our lives.

2.INTERCESSION:

John 2:3,4

The second step for a miracle is to intercede before the Lord, and to make our requests known to him. At the wedding in Cana when they ran out of wine, Mary the mother of Jesus made it known to Jesus. We must also take all our burdens to the Lord. Instead of rushing to our friends and relatives to share our needs , we must first take it to the Lord and cast our burdens upon Him.

3.INSTRUCTION:

John 2:5.

The third step is to be taught obedience to the commandments of the Lord.At the wedding in Cana , Mary , the mother of Jesus told the servants to do whatever Jesus commanded them to do. It was obedience to the instructions of Jesus that enabled them to experience the miracle. We must be careful to obey the instructions that the Lord gives to us.We must live according to the word of God.

4.INSTRUMENTS:

John 2:6.

The Lord uses instruments to perform His miracle.At the wedding in Cana the Lord used the water that was available to perform a miracle. Jesus used five loaves and two fishes that was available to feed the five thousand. The Lord can use whatever we have to perform miracles. He can use even ordinary vessels to reveal His power. We should allow the Lord to use whatever we have for His glory.

5.INSPIRATION:

John 2:7,8.

Here Jesus intervened and performed a miracle by turning the water into wine and His disciples believed on Him. The miracle that Jesus performed inspired the disciples and caused them to develop a strong faith in the Lord. We must cause every miracle that the Lord performs to become an inspiration for us to have a greater and deeper faith in Him.

Without the succession of humble obediences both by Mary and the servants, no wine would have been produced at all from the water being repeatedly served.
