Episode 213

TODAY’S READING:

“And they offered him wine mixed with myrrh, but he did not take it.” 

Mark 15:23

 

Happy Wednesday. Over the last few days, we have prayed over the story of easter. What I love is that we are exactly halfway through the devotional series, and we are already at the crucifixion. The story doesn’t end with his death; the story was just getting good.

 

What transpired was cruel; it’s something we’ve had to carry for generations. Our fathers crucified Jesus. Our Lord and savior. They didn’t know better. They mocked him; they beat him, they hurt him. They thought the story would end here, but they had no idea that he was about to return, in a big way!

 

We are going to stay in this part of the story for about two days, but today, I really wanted to highlight their offering.

 

This verse talked about when he was given wine to drink, but it was mixed. It was not good; it was almost like a slap in the face. I had a pastor once tell me that what they offered him was essentially vinegar. Imagine walking those seven miles getting to the top, and being given vinegar to drink when all your body wants is water or food.

 

Sometimes, people will come along, and they will hurt you. Use your gifts against you. They will mock your work; they won’t understand why it is that you do the things that you do, but there is always something to learn from Jesus.

 

This verse says, “but he did not take it.”

 

Jesus is the miracle worker. He turns water into wine. He makes our hard days easy. He builds our faith when we feel as if we have none. Some of us are walking through a miracle, and we want the world to see wine, but all they will do is mix it with myrrh. Do not take it. Do not let anyone talk you out of your miracle, it’s in motion, and it was set by God Himself.

 

My takeaway from today’s prayer was to keep leaning on His understanding, not mine. My takeaway was to keep working a miracle even if others mock it. Jesus is in control, not the people around me. 

 

PRAYER

Father God, thank you for this beautiful morning. Thank you for trusting us with our miracle. Father, we just want to thank you for where we find ourselves. Thank you for the blessings in our lives. We know even in the valley that there is always something to be grateful for. We love you with everything in us; it is in your Holy Name that we pray, AMEN!

Hi, I'm Ali.
I want to encourage you on your faith journey!

I'm the coffee obsessed baker from Miami, FL who got too busy to find time to read scripture everyday. I knew my life was better with Jesus and I knew I wasn't the only one struggling with finding alone time with God every morning, so I put my dreams of opening a bakery aside and set out to produce a five minute daily devotional. What first started as an email chain, has now flourished into a beautiful community and I am so happy you are here!

MY TESTIMONY

We are a faith based community in pursuit of daily prayer. All it takes is five minutes - we know you're busy but He loves you still.
