Jesus said to them, “Fill the jars with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. (John 2:7)
This may sound a little odd, but giving up worry is a joint effort between you and God. He could fix your problems and eliminate your worries by Himself, but He chooses not to. Even though He doesn’t need our help, He still wants us to be involved in the process.
Here’s what I wrote in Give Up Worry For Good…
Even though he doesn’t need to do so, God chooses to let us play a role in dealing with our daily problems. While he could easily handle things on his own, he has made the decision to involve us in the process. As can be seen at the wedding in Cana, however, there is an important catch. The Lord is the boss. He is in charge of the operation. You are not. As long as you keep that in mind, everything will work out. At the wedding, Mary didn’t try to tell Jesus what to do and neither did the servants. Rather, they followed his directions.
So how do we know what we’re supposed to do and what God is supposed to do? When is it time to “let go and let God”? As a general rule, I recommend that you do what you can. If there’s something you can do to fix your problem, do it. More often than not, it’s something very little. That’s okay. Just like He did at Cana, the Lord can work with you and produce a miracle.
