God establishes His authority through whomever He chooses. He manifests His love through those available for the mission, stirring hearts with divine purpose.
Think for instance of those at the wedding in Cana the day Jesus’ miracle ministry began: Mary was the catalyst; she set the stage. Exhorting Jesus to intervene when a shortage in provisions occurred, Mary instructed the servants to assist Him . . . “Whatever He says to you, do it.”
Mary obviously had authority in her demeanor, or possibly the tone of her voice, otherwise servants in that day and culture would never submit to or accept instruction from a woman.
The servants’ role was also important, their actions necessary for the miracle of the water pots. Had Mary not spoken or the servants ignored her lead, would water have been turned into wine that day?
Authority speaks – when we hear authority we recognize it.
Authority speaks – whatever He says to you, do it!
