Of what import is a wineless wedding? Of all the needs of people on the planet, why would bone-dry wine vats matter? Simple: it mattered to Jesus because it mattered to Mary. She presented the need to Christ. In John chapter 2, she says to him, “They have no more wine.” She knew the problem; she knew the provider. She connected the first with the second.

Now if Jesus was willing to use divine clout to solve a social faux pas, how much more willing would he be to intervene on the weightier matters of life? He wants you to know that you can take your needs—all your needs—to him. Philippians 4:6 says, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.”  Remember, friends, you are never alone.
