Miracles

Bring Them Here To Me

Ever seen a real and immediate need and know what should be done practically? The Disciples saw it clearly. There were 5000 men plus women and children and it was the end of the day (Matt. 14:13-21). This crowd had come to a secluded place to hear Jesus teach. But now, they had to go home but there was no food for the energy required to make the trip.

The Twelve came to Jesus asking that He send the crowd away so they could get something to eat. Jesus said to the Twelve, “They do not need to go away; you give them something to eat.”

Having already inventoried the available food for the crowd, the practical-minded Disciples said to Him, “We have here only five loaves and two fish.”​

Jesus said, “Bring them here to Me.” He blessed the food and had the Twelve distribute the food. Everyone ate and was satisfied.

The Twelve picked up the leftovers and had twelve full baskets – one for each of the Disciples.

When faced with a need, sometimes the Lord does not do the practical but rather the supernatural to meet a shortage of resources.

He always exhorts us to “Bring them here to Me”.

Until He returns, Maranatha

Is Anything Too Hard for the Lord?

The Lord spoke to Abraham and said that Sarah, his wife who was 90 years old, would have a son. Sarah laughed, thinking that was impossible. The Lord said, “Is anything too hard for the Lord?” (Gen. 18:14).

Think in your own life, is there anything you are facing that you deem too hard for the Lord?

Several weeks ago, I talked with a close colleague about a personnel need we have in MentorLink. I said, “I don’t think the Lord can do that.” Immediately I realized what I had said and said to him, “I am embarrassed at what I said.” Then I said, “The Lord can do that, but it will be a miracle.”

A year later, Sarah had a son. A miracle happened and the Lord showed that nothing is impossible for Him.

I know at least one miracle I am waiting on Him for. What miracles do you look to the Lord to do in your life?
