In HIS Presence


Read: JOHN 2:1-10


Meditation verse:

“His mother said to the servants, “whatever he says to you, do it” (John 2:5)


As we make petitions to God, He would sometimes give us specific instructions on what to do about our issues, which may not make sense to the human mind. God’s ways are not our ways, His thoughts are not our thoughts. He knows exactly how He intends to intervene in your situation, and His instructions are likely to align with His plans. You cannot dictate to Him how He should intervene.


At the wedding of Cana, the wine got finished before the event ended and the situation was presented to Jesus by His mother.  She then instructed the servants to do exactly as they were instructed by the Master. Perhaps she was aware that His instruction may not make sense to the servants, so she forewarned them.


In this new month, remember that God’s ways are past finding out. As you present those requests concerning your finances, business, relationships, marriage, health, or career, do whatever he tells you to do. The miracle is always in the obedience and obedience starts with taking the first step.

Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?

He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest."

Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:
Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.

If you prayed this prayer, send me an email at

I would love to pray with you personally and send you a copy of my book; ‘Living the Life’ to encourage you as you begin your new life in Christ.
