A Mother’s Confidence by Kirk Hunt
Jesus said to her, “Woman, what does your concern have to do with Me? My hour has not yet come.”
His mother said to the servants, “Whatever He says to you, do it.”
A wedding in the era that Jesus walked among us, was a major affair, important for the entire community, not just the family. To prevent an embarrassment of epic scope, Mary asked her Son, Jesus, for a literal miracle. Despite His answer, she acted with a Mother’s confidence.
Running out of wine would be a humiliation for everyone involved with the wedding. Mary, somehow connected to the affair, knew who could help. Despite His refusal to act, she committed her Son, as only a mother can.
The miracle of the Cana wedding proves that Jesus is concerned about every aspect of our lives. What concerns you concerns Him. As fits in His divine plan, Jesus acts on your behalf. Mary knew and understood Messiah’s power. She acted in the confidence that comes only from strong faith.
A mother’s confidence in her child is a special, beautiful thing. A mother’s confidence in Jesus Christ is also special and beautiful. Man or woman, boy or girl, you can act with confidence through faith in Jesus. Because He already cares for you.
Think: My confidence comes through my faith in Jesus.
Pray: “Lord, strengthen my faith so that my confidence in You.”
