(Matthew 14:16-20 NKJV)

But Jesus said to them, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.” {17} And they said to Him, “We have here only five loaves and two fish.” {18} He said, “Bring them here to Me.” {19} 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. {20} So they all ate and were filled, and they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments that remained.

Jesus shows us how it’s done, by simply using what they had to work with. He knew that five loaves and two fish couldn’t possibly feed all five thousand-plus people. There had to be a miracle take place. But, the miracle did not happen until He took what they had, blessed it, broke it and gave it.There are many people today that cannot feed their family. They can’t pay their bills. They can’t get clothes for their children. There are ministries that can’t do all that they feel led to do for the lack of finances.

The question is, are we letting God bless what we have to work with? Are we then doing what He wants us to do with it? Are we breaking it up accordingly and giving it the way He wants us to give it?

What do we want today?

Are we looking for a miracle?

We need to work with what we have. Don’t wait till we “have enough”, to do what God is asking us to do.

God will multiply as we obey Him, as we trust Him, and follow Him. Amen
