“Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.”
John 2:10, NIV
Friend, Jesus was at a wedding celebration in Galilee that lasted several days. Everything was going great until they ran out of wine. Up to this point, Jesus had not performed any miracles in public, but He told the staff to fill six large waterpots with water. I can imagine them thinking, “What good is that going to do?” But when the host tasted the water that Jesus turned to wine, he said the bridegroom had saved the best till then.
Notice how God works: If they had not run out of the good wine, they would never have tasted the best wine. God saves the best for next. You may feel like you’re running out of opportunities or running out of the resources to make ends meet. This may sound odd, but you’re in a good place. When you come to the end, God steps in and says, “I’ve saved the best for now.” The best position, the best relationships, the best in your finances, the best in your health is yet to come.
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that I can stay at peace when it feels like I’m running out of something that’s been important to me. Thank You that the best wine is coming, that You bring the extraordinary out of the ordinary. I will be faithful and look forward to Your very best. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
