THE STORY OF JESUS: Mark 8:1-10
“The people ate and were satisfied. About four thousand were present.” (Mark 8:8-9)
Is this just another version of the one time Jesus fed the crowds?
Or did Jesus feed large groups on several occasions.
If He did it more than once, why would they be surprised the second time?
Good question… though never underestimate our ability to not get things.
The bible often tells of people who doubt after seeing multiple miracles.
We’ve become so used to God’s daily care, we don’t even see it anymore.
If something dramatic or different happens, we usually explain it away.
To some extent the skeptics mind is alive and well in all of us.
The Lord often repeates Himself to us, yet we still often forget.
I think of the times He has helped and provided for me.
Jesus followers should live with our eyes open, to see His hand in our life.
With our eyes open, we start to see patterns, we see Him repeating Himself.
Eventually we begin to see that He is with us, working in us and through us.
Pay attention today – you may see the Lord reminding you again!
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, so much of what You do for me I take for granted. The food I eat, the resources and opportunities I have, the house I live in, the people in my life. You have multiplied blessings for me… but do I appreciate them?
