Perfected By The Word

16th May 2020

Scripture Reading: John 2: 1-11


“And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece.” (John 2: 6)

Our Focal Scripture makes mention of the six waterpots, which were later filled with water that became wine. The number six, represents labour in Jewish numerology. Seven, is the number of perfection. So, what was available was outside of the realm of perfection; but water was added to it and it became wine. Water is often compared to God’s word (see Ephesians 5 vs. 26). So, imperfection mixed with God’s word led to a miracle.

Friend, I am aware that you may be surrounded by imperfect situations, but as you mix them with God’s word, you will witness unbelievable miracles. As you mix your imperfect resources with God’s word, you will witness an unexplainable increase; as you mix your imperfect health with God’s word, you will witness a mighty show of the hand of God; as you mix imperfect opportunities with God’s word, you will see greatness.

Jesus did not need seven waterpots to make His first miracle happen; He found six, and that was enough. The absence of a seventh waterpot did not stop Him. Put differently, what was missing did not stop Him. Hear me as I hear the Lord: what is missing will not stop you. What you cannot afford will not stop you; what you cannot make happen at the moment will not stop you; what is not available for you at the moment cannot stop you.

Things may not be perfect at the moment, but God says, what is not perfect will not hinder your results. The things that do not add up will not stop your miracle. The dots that do not connect will not subtract from the plan and purpose of God for your destiny. What is missing in the economy is not enough to stop God from prospering you. What is not working in your favour at the moment will not stop your supernatural results.

As surely as God lives, whatever is missing will not stop the results that will soon come your way. Just add the word of the Lord to your imperfection, and you will witness unimaginable miracles.


What is missing will not stop my miracle; the word makes my imperfection perfect, in Jesus’ name!
