Thirst No More – Day 2

EXTERNAL V. INTERNAL PROBLEMS // NOVEMBER 7, 2023

Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons. Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water”; so they filled them to the brim. Then he told them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.”

John 2:6-8

What Jesus instructed the servants didn't make sense. They were asking for more wine, yet he wanted them to fill giant 20-30 gallons with water?

Jesus' response may not always seem to make sense, at first. We may be telling Jesus we have no time, but he's telling us to get plugged in and serve. We may be asking for a financial breakthrough, but Jesus is saying to keep tithing. The world gives its best first: the bonus, the good time on a first high ... but what happens when the money runs out and the hangover hits? Instead, Jesus wants us to trust him and be faithful. We may be looking for the answer to our external problems, but he may want to heal our internal issues.

Are you asking God to impact things on the outside of your life, like relationshps or finances? What if Jesus is asking you to give him the things inside that are really hurting you? Maybe it's sin, pain, depression or anxiety. Don't settle for Jesus moving only in the areas happening on your outside; today, give him what's happening inside of you. Problems within you can be far more dangerous than the problems before you.
