But Jesus said, “You feed them…”
I absolutely love Jesus! He gives such clear instruction. In this instance the disciples thought He was telling them to do something impossible. In reality Jesus had told them to do something that was difficult but not impossible. Jesus never asks us to do anything that is impossible.
Today’s verse is part of the feeding of the 5000. It explains exactly how to have victory over a difficult task…
- He took what was available
- He put His trust in heaven as His source
- Prayed & commanded Blessing on what was in his hands
The result was that the little He held was multiplied & became more than enough to complete the task. It was a difficult task but it was not impossible.
It’s easy for us to feel challenged by God’s Word and what it instructs us to do. The fact is it may be difficult but it is never impossible. When we feel overwhelmed we’re to do as Jesus did…
- Take what is available
- Put our trust in Him as our source
- Pray & command Blessing on what we have
Let’s apply this truth to our lives from today on. As we do we’ll begin to see the miraculous take place. We’ll receive more than enough to accomplish what may seem difficult and we’ll quickly discover that nothing is impossible when we put our trust in God!
