Then He commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass. And He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitudes. - Matthew 14:19
God is able to provide for us even when the resources around us are limited and inadequate. He is not limited by our limitations.
Jesus had a crowd of over five thousand people to feed and all He had in His hand were five loaves of bread and two fish.
Consider the sheer size of the crowd in front of Him and the tiny food supply in His hands. Anybody faced with such disproportionate factors of demand and supply would just give up.
But not Jesus. He sees possibility when everything else appears impossible. Let's see how He responded to this need:
• He took the fish and loaves. He did not despise the little resource in His hands.
• He looked up to heaven. Jesus knew where His source of blessing was. It was not in the resources around Him but in the power of God above.
• He blessed the bread. God is a God of increase. When we lift up our hands to Him in faith, He releases the blessing of increase over what we have.
• He broke the bread. When we start using what we have by breaking it, the power of God quickens it and creates an increase.
• He gave the bread. When we use what we have and give it wholeheartedly in service to God, it multiplies in value.
Prayer: Lord, help me to look up to You when the resources around me are limited.
Scriptural Reading: Matthew 14:13-21
