You can take it to the bank.

Jesus was one busy guy! A short chat with the Samaritan woman, and a whole city ended up being on board. A couple of days with folks hungry for the gospel and Jesus was on his way. He certainly didn’t let any grass grow under his feet!

Before you know it, Jesus was back in Cana. After helping out the wine steward at the wedding, Jesus’ reputation had spread like wildfire. It’s not surprising that there was somebody waiting for him when he arrived:

46 Jesus went to visit Cana in Galilee again. Cana is where he had changed the water into wine. One of the king’s important officials lived in the city of Capernaum. This man’s son was sick. 47 The man heard that Jesus had come from Judea and was now in Galilee. So he went to Jesus and begged him to come to Capernaum and heal his son, who was almost dead . . . 

49 The king’s official said, “Sir, come before my little son dies.”

50 Jesus answered, “Go. Your son will live.”

The man believed what Jesus told him and went home. 51 On the way home, the man’s servants came and met him. They said, “Your son is well.”
John 4:46-51 ERV


A wedding celebration. A daily task. A life-threatening illness. Jesus was always there, fulfilling requests, participating in the mundane, responding to a desperate plea. 

Jesus didn’t require a photo I.D. or personal references. He was and is up to any challenge. Jesus does seem to have one stipulation before meeting our needs:

Just ask and it will be given to you; seek after it and you will find. Continue to knock and the door will be opened for you. All who ask receive. Those who seek, find what they seek. And he who knocks, will have the door opened.
Matthew 7:7-8 VOICE

Dear Reader, whatever your circumstances or challenges, Jesus is more than equal to the task. He wants to permeate EVERY part of our lives, but he won’t do it without permission.
To put it plainly, Dear Reader, once you ask him, you can take Jesus’ promises to the bank! He will happily, generously exchange your problems for his promises of joy, peace and hope. Go ahead, Jesus is open for business 24/7, and his work is guaranteed. What do you have to lose?

13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing [through the experience of your faith] that by the power of the Holy Spirit you will abound in hope and overflow with confidence in His promises.
Romans 15:13 AMP

  1. What a honest reminder about the steadfastness of God! It’s so easy to forget that He meant what He said then and He means it now. Thanks for reminding me to trust HIM!

    1. During a season of gift giving, it’s easier for me to remember nor trusting Jesus’s promises is like rejecting a precious gift. Thanks for stopping by, Becky.

  2. Great message for the day! A relationship with GOD is more that just changing our daily problems, He wants us to know Him and change us with His Love & Glory!

    1. And one of the best parts for me, Stephanie, is that Jesus is always accessible and never too busy for us. Blessings for your day!
