When the wine failed, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.”(John 2:3)
Everything was going great at the wedding in Cana until the wine ran out. The only person who can fix the immediate problem is Jesus, and Mary knows it. As a result, she brings the problem to his attention. She doesn’t tell him what to do or how to do it. All she does is let him know of the need: that there is no more wine. Jesus responds by turning water into wine, thus sparing the bride and groom from potential embarrassment.
Here’s what I wrote in Give Up Worry For Good…
You have an advantage over the guests at the wedding in Cana. Jesus had not yet performed any miracles so nobody (besides Mary) thought to turn to him for help. The idea of appealing to Mary would have been even more farfetched. The fact that this incident is documented in the Bible is a game changer. Mary’s intercessory power is evident.
This week is all about learning to ask for supernatural help with our problems. Mary is a good person to include on your list of intercessors. Why? Because as can be seen at Cana, she’ll take your problem right to Jesus.He has a hard time saying “no” to His Mom.
