Please let my works be produced by faith, my labor prompted by love
and endurance inspired by hope in the Lord Jesus Christ. Lord,
help me to be a believer to be modeled. Lord, let me please You and
not men. Lord, help me not to look for praise from men. Lord,
help me to be gentle, encouraging, comforting and urging others
to live lives worthy of God who calls us into His Kingdom. Lord, please
let my love increase and overflow for others. Lord, please create in me a
clean heart and renew in me a right spirit so that I will be blameless and
holy in Your presence.
In Jesus name,

1 And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there:
2 And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.
3 And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine.
4 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.
5 His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.
I want to inspire and speak on having a settled
faith with unspeakable joy. I want to look at
These specific scriptures and see how this individual
walked it out. Settled means to bring to rest or come
to rest. Unspeakable means incapable of being
expressed in words. This is where I believe God is
trying to get us individually and as the body of
Christ but we have to let Jesus work.
In these first three scriptures we see a marriage going
on. So it seems that everything is going good and flowing.
The text shows the mother of Jesus was there. Jesus
and His disciples were called and invited to the
marriage also. The marriage was on the third day and
suddenly an issue arises. They wanted more wine at the
marriage because the wine ran out. So what do you do
when a want becomes a need? What do you do when a want
becomes a need you cannot fulfill? What do you do?
Where do you turn? Who do you call? The blessing that
I got out of these scriptures is even with the marriage going on that on
the third day Jesus was invited. They invited Jesus to
the wedding! Jesus being in your life in every area only
makes life better!
Now hold up! She goes to Jesus with her need and he tells
her, "What have I to do with thee, mine hour has not
come yet". Truthfully if that was some of us that reply would
of shook us! We would have probably been discouraged to ask Jesus
for anything else. Or some would have just given up on Jesus. But look
what this woman does!
She works her faith or does her part and leaves the rest to Jesus. Jesus said, “Come
unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will get you rest”. We all have
our part to do but we cannot forget once we have done our part we have to get out
the way and let Jesus work. Even the reply from Jesus to Mary did not shake her. She
had a settled faith!
Some of us right now are trying to get to the other side of what you’re dealing with.
Your trying to get pass the past to pass the hurt and questions that life have gone
unanswered. You know personally your need but we have to let Jesus work and leave
it alone. By leaving it alone and letting Jesus work shows your confidence in the Lord.
Cast not away therefore your confidence which hath great recompense of reward. Get
out the way and let Jesus work! Why? He wants to do some turning. He is the only
one that has the power to turn your situation around and make it better!
God is omnipotent! He is all powerful and able to do anything. God is omniscient.
He knows it all! He knows your need and exactly what you need. Just get out
the way and let Jesus work. He wants to turn that weeping and sorry into
unspeakable joy. Weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning.
Yes, the pain may endure. Yes, the hurt may endure. Yes, brokenness may endure.
Yes, the shame may endure but joy cometh! Joy cometh in the morning! And while
your enduring whatever it is let the peace of God which passeth all understanding
keep your heart and mind through Christ Jesus. Get out the way and let Jesus work
because He is bringing joy in the morning. And this joy and peace is found only in the
Look at what God does when we do our part and let Jesus work! The results are Jesus
performs His first miracle. He manifested forth His glory and the disciples believed on Him.
Let Jesus work! Le the Holy Ghost guide and lead you in all you do. He wants to manifest
His glory and He wants others to believe in Him through you letting Jesus work!
