When Jesus looked up and saw a great crowd coming toward him, he said to Philip, “Where shall we buy bread for these people to eat?” John 6:5
There was a crowd of about 5 thousand people there to listen to Jesus teachings. Jesus decided to test the faith of his disciples and asked them how are they going to feed all these people? By human logic it seemed impossible to supply everyones needs. But what Jesus wanted to teach them is to trust in The Lord and let God provide for all your needs.
“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
God works in mysterious ways, when there doesn’t seem a way, he makes a way. Just like when Moses came to the Red Sea he parted it, heres a boy who only has 5 loaves and 2 fish to feed 5 thousand people.
Jesus then took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed to those who were seated as much as they wanted. He did the same with the fish. John 6:11
Jesus took the 5 loaves and 2 fish and thanked God for what they had, God instantly blessed them with more food then they needed. Just as God sent manna from heaven to feed the Israelites , he will provide all our needs also, we just need to trust in him.
After the people saw the sign Jesus performed, they began to say, “Surely this is the Prophet who is to come into the world.” John 6:14
After everyone saw this miracle, they all confirmed Jesus is the Son of God. However we should not be waiting for miracles to have faith in God. We need to remember God is our provider and not man, when you understand this principle you can live with peace knowing you are more valuable than many sparrows in Jesus Name Amen
