Part 2 – LET YOUR NEEDS DRIVE YOU TO JESUS (2) | John 2:3 | My Jesus Today – Lesson 15 | David Adeniji
When some folks want to choose a wife or a husband, they sometimes think God will be blackmailed into opening their eyes all of a sudden and showing them who….when they had never cultivated the habit of listening to him for direction….even while there was nothing to choose. So, they resort to self help – ‘Date and taste’ method, to know if the other person is fit for them…Not right!
If care is not taken, our needs might drive us away from God and His word, instead of towards him. When you need something so badly, you may think God is slow, and hence you need to help yourself.
But “The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance”. 2 Pet 3:9.
Now, that’s the Bible for you right there. Speak to yourself, say, I will be patient.” You see, I’ve experienced this! Sometimes, you have vision, you have ideas, God given ideas, and you’re sure they’ll work, you’re tempted to rush into them without checking with God. You have not cultivated such habit. Perhaps you think God will slow you down, or the time spent seeking His face till you get a direction, is waste of time. Many of us are guilty of that.
But from experience I’ve seen that when you patiently wait for direction (Heb 10:36) that’s the only time you have real and lasting success. When you don’t wait on him, but allow your needs drive you into action, you’ll hit some blocks, and eventually be forced to wait longer than God’s will. Had Mary presented the need for more wine to the bridegroom or governor of that wedding, the truth is, the provision they made had finished, and new wine cannot be produced in minutes, it takes days. So, they would still had been disgraced. They would be in lack. Lord we repent, from today, henceforth, our needs will drive us to you first, and to you alone, in Jesus Name. Amen, Hallelujah!
