Look carefully at Mary’s back-and-forth with Jesus, as recorded in the miracle of water becoming wine. In verse three she presents the need: “They have no more wine.” In verse four Jesus is curiously unreceptive, saying, “Dear woman, that’s not our problem. My time has not yet come” (John 2:4 NLT). Hence, Mary’s petition was met with Jesus’ hesitation.

You’ve heard the same. In your personal version of verse three you explained your shortage, you pleaded your case. And then came verse four. Silence. When no answer comes, how does your verse five read? Mary’s verse five reads like this: “His mother told the servants, ‘Do whatever he tells you’” (John 2:5 NLT). Translation? “I trust Jesus.” Dear friends please remember, Jesus is with you, and you are never alone.
