John 2:1-11

On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus' mother was there, 2 and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. 3 When the wine was gone, Jesus' mother said to him, "They have no more wine."

4 "Dear woman, why do you involve me?" Jesus replied. "My time has not yet come."

5 His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you."

6 Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons. a

7 Jesus said to the servants, "Fill the jars with water"; so they filled them to the brim.

8 Then he told them, "Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet."

They did so, 9 and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside 10 and said, "Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now."

11 This, the first of his miraculous signs, Jesus performed at Cana in Galilee. He thus revealed his glory, and his disciples put their faith in him.

NIV

One of the reasons Jesus intervened in the wedding running out of wine was because His mother INVOLVED Him.

He clearly stated that his time had not yet come yet here we see Him performing His first great miracle.

One of the greatest secrets to receiving from the lord is getting Him involved in your life and then doing as He says. There may be undesired situations you have gotten into because you did not get Him involved in the first place and logically speaking, you do not think He will be willing to get involved right now because you tell yourself things like ‘ I have really messed this one up big time, God is not pleased, I’m on my own’ you may even be getting signals from your spirit that the Holy ghost is not pleased and you will have to suffer the consequences of your actions. Nevertheless, you can still receive an intervention and a miracle from the lord Jesus when you invite Him into the situations and do as He says. No matter how far a matter has gone, it is not too late to get the Lord involved and begin to do what He says. Remember He is a present Help in time of need.
