“What if God has already given you all the people and all the money you need to do what he has called you to do?”
A friend and colleague asked me that question many years ago.
5 loaves and 2 fish were all the disciples needed to feed 5,000.
Toward evening the disciples approached him. “We’re out in the country and it’s getting late. Dismiss the people so they can go to the villages and get some supper.” But Jesus said, “There is no need to dismiss them. You give them supper.” “All we have are five loaves of bread and two fish,” they said. [Matthew 14:15-17, The Message]
Manna supplied every morning was all the Israelites needed for 40 years but they had to collect it daily.
Randy’s question continues to provoke me to look more deeply. Perhaps God has already given me all that I need, but I’m not seeing it. I tend to look with eyes that see scarcity. God reminds me that he has given me abundance.
What about you? Are you seeing scarcity? Or abundance?
