“And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine.” (John 2: 3)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
It is instructive to observe that Jesus and His mother did not come to the wedding in Cana in order to perform a miracle. They came as guests; they came to eat and drink like others; they came to play their part in consuming whatever the couple provided for the people; Jesus came to take value from the couple, but He ended up doing a miracle that gave them more wine. Jesus came to take value, but later brought value on board.
Friend, God is about to do a divine rearrangement: things that are supposed to deplete you will increase you; things that should subtract from you will start adding to you; things that should reduce you will start to increase you; challenges that should impoverish you will turn around and enrich you; troubles that should have been the end of the road for you will turn around and become major turning points for your greatness.
Get set: there may be people that came to take from you; God will turn their heart in your favour, and they will begin to work in your favour. The same way Jesus gave that couple more than what they could have given Him, God will cause you to have more than you could ever give your helpers of destiny. God will send you men who will give you much more than you can give them. God will send you men that will increase you.
Jesus got involved, and a marriage that was at risk of being dissolved turned around and became a marriage that provided the best wine that anyone could drink. Get set: as surely as the Lord lives, the things, challenges and people that came to reduce you will become major reminders of how the Lord turned your life around. God will cause a mighty turn around in your fortunes.
The time of reduction is over; the season of increase has just begun.
Psalm 115: 14 says: “The LORD shall increase you more and more, you and your children.”
Declare With Me: What was meant to reduce me will increase me; I am divinely increased, in Jesus’ name!
