“How many loaves do you have?” Jesus (Mark 8:5)
So often in life we are tempted to focus on what we don’t have. Sometimes it is difficult to look beyond our needs and see our miracle. In my life I think I have heard people speaking more about what they don’t have than what they do have.
What about you? Are you looking at your need or for ways to share what you have?
Great crowds had gathered to see and hear Jesus. They were hungry as they had been with Jesus for three days. Many were about to faint from weakness.
Jesus spoke these words to His disciples. “How many loaves do you have?” The disciples saw no way that what they had was enough for the crowds. They replied that they had seven loaves of bread.
Jesus had the crowd set on the ground and He took the bread blessed it and gave it to the people. This He also did with a few small fish that was there.
In the Hands of Jesus what you have in your hands is enough for a miracle!
Now for some this may sound too good to be true but it’s not.
I have discovered in my life that Jesus will take what He has given you when you give it all back to Him and when He gives it back it will be abundant and sufficient. Glory!
I knew the call of Jesus for my life was to be an evangelist. I dreamed of being a Billy Graham type stadium preacher and seeing millions walking the aisles for Jesus.
Jesus gave me a piece of wood from a junkyard and had me start carrying that simple wood in the form of a cross across America in 1969. He has taken me now to every nation and major island group walking with the cross and He alone has had millions hear the message of Jesus and salvation. He has taken me from the jungles to the wars and into the cities of the world. He has put me and the cross on TV and the news to proclaim Jesus to the world.
This is just one simple illustration of taking what is possible and putting it in Jesus Hands for Him to do His mighty acts.
What is in your hand? Remember Moses and the rod.
I just want to leave you thinking and looking at your life.
There is a hungry world. Can you feed one?
People need to receive Jesus as Savior and Lord. Will you start with just one person and then go from there.
Move from what you can’t do to starting where you are.
Often the believers are the most complaining and disgruntled people. Move out of your self-centered doubting world and move into living in the Glory of the Lord. You will see Him take what is in your hands and work in His mighty power. Glory
I’m praying for you.
Peace and blessings,
Pilgrim followers of Jesus,
