In the briefest of description amongst all 4 gospels who share the same miracle we are encouraged to know that even if we are in some isolated and remote place; even if we have a logistical problem and the sums simply do not add up; it is possible that by the end of the day we will have more than what we started with: because of Jesus.
“Send the crowds away, so that they can go to the villages and buy themselves some food.’ Jesus replied, ‘They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.’ ‘We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish,’ they answered. ‘Bring them here to me,’ he said. And he told the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people. They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.” (Matthew 14 v 15-21)
Does the need outweigh your capability or your provision?
Where are you looking? The gigantic need or what looks like garnish in your hand?
Stop looking at both and look to Jesus.
With your eyes on Him you realise that He is greater than the greatest need.
Jesus will take and use with whatever and whoever you have become.
He still calls to you today, ‘Bring what you have to me.’
