“Do whatever he tells you.” (John 2:5)
Jesus wants to help us with our problems, but He still expects us to do what we can. The servers at the wedding in Cana followed the instructions of the Blessed Mother (above) and obeyed Jesus when He asked them to fill up the jugs with water. As a result, they got to participate in the miraculous transformation of water into wine.
Here’s what I wrote in Give Up Worry For Good…
God wants to help us with our daily struggles, but he also expects us to do what we can. While it’s true that he provides for the birds, they still have to look for the food. We should follow their example. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: do your best and let God do the rest.
Beginning tomorrow, we’ll spend a week focusing on the fact that following Jesus won’t make us immune from trials and difficulties. What it will do, however, is give us strength to withstand any storm that comes our way.
Let not your heart be troubled!
