What is in your hands?
Luke 9: 13-14 “He replied, “You give them something to eat.” They answered, “We have only five loaves of bread and two fish—unless we go and buy food for all this crowd.” (About five thousand men were there.)”
What do you have?
What is in your hands right now?
Moses had a staff.
Joshua had a spear.
The widow of a prophet had a little oil.
Samson had a donkey’s jawbone.
David had a sling.
A woman had an alabaster jar of perfume.
What do you have that you can use?
What is in your hands now?
Maybe yesterday you had so much more.
But today you only have …
God clearly gave a principle when He created.
Jeremiah 32:17 “Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.”
The disciples had forgotten about the power Jesus had given them. They were not releasing what they had in their hands and as a result they did not realise that nothing is too hard.
“You give them something to eat.”
Jesus meant it.
They had enough. They just had to release it.
Stop waiting for God to give you what you think you need and step out now and give what you have. Stretch out your hand. Release what you hold. You will find that what is in you and what you are holding contains a miracle of provision for someone or some situation.
God is not waiting for you to have more income and resources or a spouse and a team, recognition and maturity, wisdom and strength. He is waiting for you to recognise you have something now, no matter how small it is and for you to offer it for service to God. Then the miracles can begin!
