In those days there was another large crowd with nothing to eat. Jesus called his disciples and told them, 2 “I feel sorry for the crowd because they have been with me for three days and have nothing to eat. 3 If I send them away hungry to their homes, they won’t have enough strength to travel, for some have come a long distance.” 4 His disciples responded, “How can anyone get enough food in this wilderness to satisfy these people?” 5 Jesus asked, “How much bread do you have?” They said, “Seven loaves.” 6 He told the crowd to sit on the ground. He took the seven loaves, gave thanks, broke them apart, and gave them to his disciples to distribute; and they gave the bread to the crowd. 7 They also had a few fish. He said a blessing over them, then gave them to the disciples to hand out also. 8 They ate until they were full. They collected seven baskets full of leftovers. 9 This was a crowd of about four thousand people! Jesus sent them away, 10 then got into a boat with his disciples and went over to the region of Dalmanutha. (Mark 8:1-10, CEB)
These people need food. But where will we get enough for all of them?
Well what do we have?
Have you ever wondered how the resources you have would be enough to do what you are called to do?
I know as a person who God has called into ministry I have often wondered exactly what God was/is thinking with having me as a pastor. I know where I have been, what I have done and how unworthy I am to be a part of the body of Christ, let alone a pastor. And yet, God has called me to be a part of the body of Christ and a pastor.
We sometimes can’t see the answers because we see the problems. Our focus doesn’t allow s to see what is right there.
So have faith. And know that God is able to do through you things you can not fathom.
Love People. Love God.
