John 2:1-5  “The next day there was a wedding celebration in the village of Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there and Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the celebration.  The wine supply ran out during the festivities, so Jesus’ mother told him, “They have no more wine.”  “Dear woman, that’s not our problem,” Jesus replied. “My time has not yet come.”  But his mother told the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”  
 Over and over again, I have to thank God for sticking with his timetable for my life and not bending to my will. I can look back over my life and see where God could have answered me right then with what I “thought I wanted and allow it to destroy me. With the utmost gratitude, I salute Him for keeping from me what I considered the best thing for me at the time.  If you’re anything like me, you realize the folly of begging God for something, and when He gives it to you, you murmur and complain about what you got. We have the craziest habit of wanting what we want until we get it. Whereas, if we waited for the fullness of God’s timing to come to pass, we would see that His “ordained season carries within it an unforeseen amount of grace and protection.  When Jesus responded to Mary about why she was so concerned, our True Vine made it clear He already had the situation covered under control. Even though Mary pressed the issue with the servants, Jesus was wise enough to turn her premature actions into something He used to His advantage, which raises other questions: If Jesus is God, he had to have seen this coming? And if “He saw it coming, doesn’t that mean He planned to be there and perform a miracle?  We must remember that our God sees the end from the beginning. There is no problem for which He doesn’t already have a solution. Therefore, I wholeheartedly believe that Jesus knew what was going to happen at the wedding at Cana, and this is precisely why Mary shouldn’t have been up in arms in the first place.  “Everything God does is strategic. Intentional — Never do we witness God making a mistake or running late for His divine appointments with us.
