Flying with Thursday's Word with Brenda Smith, part 2

When Jesus asked Philip where they could buy a great amount of bread, Philip started assessing the probable cost. He was the logical thinker of the group, the dollars and cents man. His reply stresses the hopelessness of the situation judged from the meager resources of the group. Two hundred denaril or eight months wages would not buy enough to give this crowd a little taste. Philip does not come up with a solution, but points out the hopeless impossibility. Jesus wanted to teach him that financial resources are not the most important ones. We can limit what God does in us by assuming what is and is not possible. Is there some impossible task that you believe God wants you to do? Don’t let your estimate of what can’t be done keep you from taking on the task. God can do the miraculous; trust Him to provide the resources.
Andrew came to Jesus with a lad who had five barley loaves and two fish, but what are these for so many people? This child had volunteered his lunch, knowing it was not much but at least it was something. The lad brought what little he had, and it made a difference. If we offer nothing to God, He will have nothing to use. But only God can take what little we have and turn it into something great!
A little bread becomes plenty.
A little army becomes mighty.
A little prayer gets answered.
A little light becomes the universe.
A little faith can move a mountain!
Yes! LITTLE IS MUCH WHEN GOD IS IN IT...  This little light of mine I’m gonna let it shine!
