KEY THOT: Jesus can use the little we offer up to him to feed the multitudes. Our limited resources + Jesus = God’s infinite riches. Jesus himself knows what he already is planning to do. So it makes sense to ask Him.. Philip’s mistake is trying to use his small mind to solve a big problem. He should not have relied on his own wisdom but turn to Jesus to ask Him for his wisdom and plan.
Don’t let our small minds and natural thinking prevent God from working out His plan and purpose through us. Also, learn to commit everything to the Lord, trusting in His wisdom and plan rather than working out a solution based on our small thinking and limited resources.
In every challenge I face, I must first ask the Lord how He plans to resolve it. Once I have heard from him, then I can work out the details—like mobilizing the people to help distribute God’s riches to feed the people.
Father, what a joy to know that Jesus added to our limited resources equals to God’s infinite riches. May You help us to seek Your solution before trying to come up with our own plan based on our natural and small thinking. Amen.
