Whatever He Says DO IT!

Most of the pictures are ones I purchased from a Clipart Company a while back...all except this one:

I am going to leave the rest because I think they help  make the point.

Before I go there though, I can't explain why I put what looks like stone around the picture ?!?!  I didn't mean to go there, I was just trying to fill white space and the "stone" just evolved.  I was going to try and video how I did it but I'm not sure where my tripod is ???  One day I'll show you.  

In the meantime the story behind the picture....

One day I was reading the story of Jesus at the wedding feast and his first miracle. When I got to the place where Mary tells the servants to do whatever he says I had a “Suddenly”. A sudden revelation…. That’s it! WHATEVER HE SAYS DO IT! Seems so simple now, well duh?! But that has been my motto since that day. WHATEVER HE SAYS DO IT.

The story:
1On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus' mother was there, 2and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. 3When the wine was gone, Jesus' mother said to him, "They have no more wine." 4"Dear woman, why do you involve me?" Jesus replied, "My time has not yet come."
5His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you."
6Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons.
7Jesus said to the servants, "Fill the jars with water"; so they filled them to the brim.
8Then he told them, "Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet."
They did so, 9and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside 10and said, "Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now."

11This, the first of his miraculous signs, Jesus performed in Cana of Galilee. He thus revealed his glory, and his disciples put their faith in him.(John 2:1-11)
I started thinking about all the different stories in the Bible where people DID do what the Lord told them to, and all the ones that DIDN'T.  Each had a result.

Examples: (not in order)

The Lord told Adam and Eve not to eat from the tree in the middle of the garden... they did and we have all been paying for it since!

The Lord told Joshua to march around Jericho ... he did and the walls came tumbling down!

The Lord told Moses to strick the stone one time to get water ... he struck it twice and wasn't allowed into the promise land

The Lord told Sampson not to tell anyone where he got his power... he did and lost it, they gouged out his eyes and enslaved him.

The Lord told Noah to build an ark... he and his family were saved.  (I LOVE the faith of Noah!  Can you imagine?!)
The Lord told Lot to leave Sodom and "Don't Look Back!" ... his wife looked back and turned into a pillar of salt.
The Lord told Abraham to sacrifice Issac... he was going to and he got God's promise of more decendants than can be counted.
I think you are probably getting the point... story after story of obedience/disobedience, all with results!
