Matthew 14–Feeding the Crowd

It does not take much faith for God to do amazing things.  One need simply to be  available and believe.  Of all his miracles, Jesus feeding the huge crowd is a great picture of how he provides completely and through the most amazing means.  5 loaves, 2 fish and an expecting crowd allowed God to show that he owns the world and everything in it.  When the crowds were filled—there was still sufficient food remaining to fill 12 more baskets.  God always does exceedingly and amazingly more than we could ever expect.

In our lives, we too need to look for God’s provision.  We need to walk expecting for God to provide. We need not try to understand the why’s but simply expect God to always keep his word and execute the plan. We need to trust Him and follow him humbly and expectantly.  We need to live as a grateful servant and child.  We do not have a mentality that feel we deserve to be pampered, but we do walk believing God will meet ou needs as we follow him. We are not entitled—but we are loved.  Help me Lord to follow you humbly and trust you fully.

God Bless You

Hearing of this, the crowds followed him on foot from the towns. 14 When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them and healed their sick.

15 As evening approached, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a remote place, and it’s already getting late. Send the crowds away, so they can go to the villages and buy themselves some food.”16 Jesus replied, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.”17 “We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish,” they answered.

18 “Bring them here to me,” he said. 19 And he directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people. 20 They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. 21 The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.
