There are times in life where we find ourselves up against an impossible need, and that what we have doesn’t look like it’s enough for the situation at hand. You know, I’m so thankful that with God, everything that we have is actually all that we need. When we’re willing to surrender it to Him, He’s able to bless what we do have and take care of it.
It’s God’s super on our natural that makes things possible that were before completely impossible. Matthew 14:13-21, “And Jesus went to a desolate place by Himself, but the crowds followed Him here, and He went ashore. He saw a great crowd and He had compassion on them. He healed their sick. When it was evening, the disciples came to Him and said, ‘It’s a desolate place, and the day’s over. Send the crowds away into the villages and buy food for them.’ And Jesus said, ‘They don’t need to go away. You give them something to eat.’ And they said, ‘But we only have five loaves here and two fish.’ And He said, ‘Bring it to me.'”
You know, they took inventory, and for the multitudes, all they had was five loaves and two fish. And Jesus said, “I can use that.” “He ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass and taking the five loaves and two fish, He looked up to heaven and said a blessing. Then He broke the loaves and gave them to the disciples. The disciples gave them to the crowds and they all ate and were satisfied. They took up 12 baskets full of broken pieces left over, and those who ate were about 5,000 men plus women and children.”
I love how this happens. You know, you find yourself with this challenge and you take inventory and you can see what I have is just not enough. This isn’t gonna cut it. And God said, “That’s okay. Give it to me.” And when we are willing to offer what little we have to God, He can bless that. And then it ends up being more than we ever started with. In His hands, very little becomes more than enough.
So I just want to encourage you today that whatever you have, if you’re willing to give it to God, it’s going be enough. He can take anything that you’re willing to surrender to Him and use it to bless others, and to use it for His purposes.
So, God, I pray right now that you reveal to us the things that you’ve already placed in our hands, Lord. The things that we can just so obediently give back to you, God. And when we give it to you, and you bless it, Lord, the very little becomes very much. So, God, I just thank you that you are the God of the impossible.
