Prior to our Focal Scripture, Jesus had told Mary that His hour (of manifestation) had not yet come. There was a challenge in the wedding in Cana of Galilee; the couple ran out of wine; there was a need for solutions; Mary knew that Jesus could bring divine intervention, but Jesus insisted that His hour was yet to come. Jesus insisted that the hour of divine manifestation was yet to come. Jesus suggested that it wasn’t time for divine help.
Mary saw Jesus’ insistence, and she told servants at the venue to do whatsoever Jesus told them to do. She heard that it was not yet time for a divine appearance, and she got servants to stand by and await Jesus’ instructions. She positioned men in the pathway of obedience, and Jesus intervened. She took a step that caused the time of manifestation to show up ahead of time. Mary took action that made divine time to happen.
Friend, when it seems that it is not yet time for God to show up, your actions can make Him show up on time. You can activate divine manifestation by reason of your prayers; you can turn the hand of God by reason of your obedience; you can turn around the fortunes of people around you by simply getting them to walk in obedience to God; you can cause the time of divine intervention to be brought forward by your actions.
Mary took a step (by telling the servants to stand by for Jesus’ instructions), and the hand of God was drawn into action. What is the step that you are taking today to move the hand of God? Start making those prayers right away; start serving God in an uncommon dimension right away; start walking in obedience on a whole new level; start making demands from Divinity.
Remember, the action of a mere mortal caused Divinity to adjust divine timing. Be that man/woman that will cause divine timing to come sooner than later.
