Scripture Reading: Joh 2:10
And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now
Reflections: Many people attended the wedding feast. Jesus was one of them. Soon the wine run out. This had the propensity to halt the joyous mood of the occasion. Jesus came to the rescue. He asked the servants to fill the empty water jars with water and then to draw out its contents. Miraculously, the drawn out water turned into wine. The taste of this new wine was far superior. When the man in charge of the feast drank of the miracle wine, he wondered why such a tasty wine had been kept until now. Evidently just like the invited guests, until he had tasted of this new wine, he thought that they were being treated to the best. Sometimes you may think you have accessed the best but when God steps in with a new development you will realize that what you had was not really the best after all. In this sense, you must live to understand that with God on your side, the best will surely spring up. Paul sums it up all with the words “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined the things that God has prepared for those who love him.”. Indeed, what is coming is better than what is gone.
Prayer: Dear Lord I thank you that you have always reserved the best for my life.
Confession: No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined the things that God has prepared for me. The best is truly yet to come! I am holding on!
