Jesus did many miraculous things. After a long
day of teaching the people and healing the sick, Jesus still did another
amazing miracle. He fed over 5,000 people with just five loaves of
bread and two fish.
One of the keys I want you to remember from this story
is what Jesus did when he took the loaves and the fish: "He
looked up toward heaven and asked God's blessing on the food."
When we invite God into anything in our lives, He can
change it. He can provide the solution we need. He's big
enough to do anything. He created the whole universe out of
nothing, didn't He? So He can certainly multiply anything that we
give Him to make it meet whatever need He shows us.
I know it's hard to trust God when it looks like there's
so little around us. But we can trust Him, and when we do, He will
always prove faithful. Always.
The next time something looks impossible, look up to God and ask for His blessing, then
wait in faith to see what He does next!
P.S. It's hard not to worry
about things, especially when we don't have very much. But Jesus
very clearly told us that God cares for each one of us, and that as we
continue to look up to Him, there will be enough for us. Jesus
"So I tell you, don't worry about
everyday life – whether you have enough food, drink, and clothes.
Doesn't life consist of more than food and clothing?
Look at the birds. They don't need to
plant or harvest or put food in barns because your heavenly Father
feeds them. And you are far more valuable to him than they are. Can
all your worries add a single moment to your life? Of course
"And why worry about your clothes?
Look at the lilies and how they grow. They don't work or make their
clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully
as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here
today and gone tomorrow, won't he more surely care for you? You have
so little faith!
"So don't worry about having
enough food or drink or clothing. Why be like the pagans who are so
deeply concerned about these things? Your heavenly Father already
knows all your needs, and he will give you all you need from day to
day if you live for him and make the Kingdom of God your primary
"So don't worry about tomorrow,
for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today's trouble is enough for
today" (Matthew 6:25-34, NLT).
