THE STORY OF JESUS: John 6:1-15
“Jesus took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed them…” (John 6:11)
So many people, so many needs, so few resources.
I can certainly relate to this.
In ministry we are always facing too few resources and too many needs.
Yet we serve the One Who has come to deal with these concerns.
I can’t explain how the loaves and fish were multiplied.
But there is an explanation… God!
We need to shift our focus from our smallness to God’s greatness.
We never have enough on our own, but God is more than enough for us!
Notice that Jesus doesn’t complain about inadequate resources.
He thanks God for what He received, trusting that it will do!
We can do the same, God will use what we have, no matter how small.
Our problem is not lack of God, our problem is lack of confidence in God.
As you see all the needs and challenges, thank God for what you’ve got.
No matter how small it seems, with God it will be enough.
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, we do not stand alone. If God is for us, who can be against us. Help us to serve with faith, knowing that God will multiply the resources for us when and how He sees best.
