John 6:5-13 Turning to Philip he asked, ´Philip, where can we buy bread to feed all these people? (He was testing Philip, for he already knew what he was going to do.) Philip replied, ´It would take a fortune to begin to do it!
Read what happened to Phillip and find out:
For a split second, I forgot who I was talking to-Jesus can change things in an instant. I think my lack of faith got caught up in the people demanding food and my exasperation on how to feed them. I was mad that it would cost so much money to feed all of them.
I was looking right at the man who could answer any question, big or small. And yet, I was limiting Him. At least Andrew mentioned the young boy's food we could use. Even Andrew didn't think the food would be enough. When Jesus used the boy's 2 loaves of bread and small fish, it put me to shame. What a miracle-that small amount of food feeding everyone, with fish and bread left over!
Lord, gently help me to look for solutions before I put the blame on You. Thank You. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen
