When we think of the account of the feeding of the five thousand (or more like fifteen to twenty thousand if we count the women and children) we don’t often think of it as an individual encounter.
Yet before this miracle cold take place Jesus had an encounter (albeit brief) with a young lad.
The young lad had a limited amount of resources that in the eyes of the world was very, very little.
Yet in the eyes of the Lord it was enough to provide for many, many people.
This is an amazing picture of how the Lord can use our little resources and us.
We may have a desire to do things for the Lord and in His Kingdom, but many of us think we do not have enough resources or talents.
My friend, no matter what little you have the Lord can use it, and He can use it in a mighty way.
Whatever you have can be sued in the Kingdom to impact on the lives of others.
The very small amount of food belonging to the lad fed thousands of people.
Yes, Jesus blessed it and multiplied it, but this would not have happened if the young lad had not handed it over.
What have you got to hand over to the Lord this morning?
You may not think it is much, but through the Lord it can be very significant.
Your talents and resources, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant, are very important for the Kingdom.
You have a part to play, no matter how small you think it may be.
Be encouraged this morning, and have the confidence to use your talents and resources through Jesus.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that I have a use in the Kingdom where my talents and resources will be used”.
John 6 v 9…..There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes; but what are they among so many?
