John 6:9-14

There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small
fishes: but what are they among so many?

10And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass
in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.

11And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he
distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were
set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.

12When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up
the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.

13Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve
baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained
over and above unto them that had eaten.



We have often read this story and marveled at how the
Lord took what a young lad had and fed a multitude of people. Have
you ever considered the boy? Or even the reaction of Christ's own
disciples? These were men who had spent quality time with the Lord.
If anyone should have had faith wouldn't it be the 12 that walked
with Jesus? Yet, they asked "but what are they among so many?"

We are often no different than they. We look at the problem and make
it bigger than the God we serve. We see our bank account vs. the
bill or our capability vs. the task and wonder, what can be done
with so little?

Today I ask, What is it that you have? Talent,time, money, a Word or
encouragement? To many, or even to ourselves it may not seem like a
lot but if we give it to the Lord, he can take it, bless it, feed
His people and give us more in return.


The issue is not about our ability or how much we have to give but
rather our availability and willingness to allow the Lord to use
whatever we have for His glory.
Let Him use your "2 fish and 5 loaves" worth of whatever and see how
Christ can use it to bless others and give you more than you had in
return.

Continue to press!
