Daily Bible Blessing-116

 

 

"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)

 

When Jesus saw a great crowd coming toward him, he said to Philip, "Where shall we buy bread for these people to eat? Philip answered him, "Eight months' wages would not buy enough bread for each one to have a bite!" Andrew, another disciple of Jesus, spoke up and said what we read in the verse quoted above. A great crowd and only 5 small barley loaves and 2 small fish. 

 

The disciples had been with Jesus for almost an year now and they had seen their Teacher do many miracles. They were eye witnesses, but could not yet comprehend the magnitude of the power that their Teacher had. They were learning and their Teacher was teaching them much. No doubt, sometimes the astounding reality or enormity of the problems they encountered, found them wanting in faith, which Jesus described as "little faith."

 

Philip calculated and said it was pointless, Andrew searched and found a little but thought it was no good.

Five small barley loaves and two small fish........Jesus saw it differently. There would be enough for all and leftovers too.

He took the food, gave thanks and asked his disciples to distribute it to all the people who had gathered; 5000 men and there were women and children too. They all had their fill and 12 baskets of pieces of the barley loaves were gathered.

 

What we see as trivial or small can be worked upon by our Savior Jesus and there would be abundance. 

He is Almighty God; we must believe that he can do great things though our finite minds cannot often imagine it. 

Let's trust and abide in his promise which says, 

"Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?" (John 11:40)
