Your Time is Now

It doesn’t matter if people tell you it’s not your time.

Posted on

In the early morning hours one Saturday, my phone rang. I knew it couldn’t be good. A close friend had just got word that the company we were both using to build our swimming pools was bankrupt, and we wouldn’t get our pools finished or our money back. I told my husband as I hung up the phone what she’d said. In that exact moment, a peace I can’t explain washed over me. I turned to my husband and said, “even if we are the only ones, God is going to finish our pool.” I knew it to my core.

I told my family, who agreed to come so we could pray. We all marched around that giant dirt hole and rebar, praying and claiming victory. As we finished, my mother said, “God is going to turn your water into wine!” And He did! We contacted the newly jobless foreman and workers and paid them each week. They built us a pool worthy of a Hawaiian resort. Anyone who saw it said it was so beautiful they’d never leave. And they were right! God had turned our water into wine. We paid far less than what it would have cost had it been done any other way. God used that pool for many salvations and baptisms.

When Mary asked Jesus to fix their problem of no wine in John 2, Jesus said, it’s not my hour yet. But Mary didn’t care about that. She needed an answer now. She refused to take no for an answer. Her actions backed it up. She told the servants to do whatever Jesus told them. She made it His problem and not hers.

It doesn’t matter if people tell you it’s not your time. It wasn’t time for the Syrophoenician woman in Mark 6 either, but Jesus honored both her and Mary’s faith. It doesn’t matter if your need is for family or physical healing or whether you have a financial or situational need. The time is now!

Hebrews 11:1(KJV) “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Now is the time! Not later. Now! Be bold and believe and see your water turned into wine!
