Yesterday I wrote about the quality of the provision of Jesus, looking at the wine at the wedding in Cana as our example.
Here we also see that His provision is abundant, and there is another account that confirms this.
In what is known as feeding the five thousand, Jesus uses five loaves and two fishes to provide a filling meal for about ten to fifteen thousand people.
There were five thousand men, and there were women and children and they all ate until they were satisfied (Matthew 14 v 20).
Even after this there was plenty left, twelve baskets full to be precise.
You see, when Jesus provides for us He over-provides.
Jesus never gives us just enough; He provides for abundance.
In John 10 v 10 He says He came to give us life and life in abundance.
In 3 John 2 we read that above all things He wants us to live in prosperity (that is abundance), and also in health.
When He was feeding the people in this account He didn’t just give them a small piece of food, He provide more than enough for everybody with lots to spare.
It is like that in what He provides for us; there is more than enough for all of us and plenty to spare.
So grab everything that he has provided for you; with regards to the things of Jesus I suggest that you are greedy!
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for the bountiful provision that you have provided for us through the finished work of Jesus”.
Matthew 14 v 20 and 21…..And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full. And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children
