When God is Involved, Miracles Can Happen

The day was late and the people were hungry. The group leader only had enough food for the smallest group out of the bunch. There was NEVER going to be enough food to feed everyone. Some suggested sending everybody to find their own food so the few leaders could eat. What did the leader do?

He said, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.” (Matthew 14.16)

In the face of this wild and crazy idea that more than five thousand people would have enough to eat, rather than feeling depressed about what would NEVER happen, the team chose to believe in what COULD happen. “Then He commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass.” (Matthew 14.19) Ultimately a few fish and a couple loaves of bread fed more than five thousand people.

If the team had decided it was impossible, then nobody would have eaten that day. If the team had chosen to dwell on the negative, God’s grace would never have been revealed that day. It was only when the team CHOSE to allow God’s grace to work in their lives that miracles were able to happen.

Something to think about…
