John 6:1-13. The multitudes had gathered and considering the fact that they were going to embark on a long journey, Jesus thought to himself, “it wouldn’t be good to dismiss them without giving them anything edible”.
He went to seek Philip’s opinion to test Him, even though He knew what He would do. Philip’s response? He magnified the impossibility of feeding the people because they were many.
Andrew on the other hand said, “Master there’s a little boy with just 5 loaves of bread and 2 fishes”. Andrew also must have felt that what was available might not do anything but decided to tell Jesus about it to fulfill all righteousness.
“What a perfect meal!” Jesus thought. He went ahead to give thanks and ask that the meal be shared among the 5,000 people. The people ate to satisfaction and there were still 12 baskets left.
See what five loaves of bread and two fishes did!
Dear friends, I’ve come to realize that God only needs us to surrender whatever we have so that He may multiply it for the blessing of the nations. This is what Jesus did: He offered Himself as a seed for the rise (multiplication) of saviours (John 12:24).
Do not ever feel like what God has placed in your hands is insignificant and little, and cannot bless lives.
What you have has been strategically given to you by God to bless nations that He has sent you to.
Who would have thought that five loaves of bread and two fishes would feed multitudes talk less of having leftovers?
God is the God of abundance and He is willing to trade what He has placed in our hands for more if we allow Him.
You are blessed!
