Whatever He Says To You, Do It.
The title of this blog comes from John 2:5 in which Jesus and His mother and disciples are attending a wedding feast given in honor of one of the friends of Jesus and Mary. A problem develops when the family runs out of wine. Mary went to Jesus asking Him to do something about their problem, but He said to her, “Woman, what does your concern have to do with me?” Never one to doubt; Mary turned to the servants standing nearby and said to them, “Whatever He says to you, do it.” The servants obeyed the instructions of the Lord and the wedding party got wine. Whenever a problem arises; if we were smart; we would go to the one who can help us just like Mary did, and do whatever the Lord tells us to do.
Jesus told His disciples in John 14:14, “If you ask anything in my Name, I will do it.” This statement by Jesus reinforces what Mary told the servants to do in John chapter two. And herein lies the key to receiving anything from God. If we will do as instructed by God’s Word, whatever we asked for in the Name of Jesus; we will receive it. To me that doesn’t seem to be real complicated, but you would be surprised at how many people refuse to do what Jesus instructs them to do; and when their needs aren’t met, they blame Him.
