Message: God’s Provision
God uses all kinds of things and different types of people to accomplish His purposes. For example, He used the beauty of Esther to save His people from the evil plans of Haman. He used David with his sling and a stone to save His people. He used Samson and a jawbone of a donkey. He used Moses and a rod to open up the Red Sea. He also chose to use floods, a burning bush, and in donkey to achieve His purposes and goals. In today’s scripture (John 6:1-9) God used something very small to do something incredibly large. A boy had five small barley loaves and two small fish. God used what was in the boy’s hands to feed 5,000 men. Without the touch of the Lord, the loaves and fish would have been inadequate.
What’s in your hands? What talents and abilities do you possess? God wants to use you and me to exalt Jesus and expand His Kingdom; but He can’t until we give Him what’s in our hands. Don’t worry about what you don’t have or can’t do. Instead, concentrate on what you do have and what you can do. Little is much when God is in it. What’s in your hands? Are you willing to give it to the Lord?
“Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they go among so many?” John 6:9 NIV
