“I feel compassion for the people because they have remained with Me now three days and have nothing to eat Mark 8:2
Jesus was moved with compassion when they realized, all these people who have been following and listening to him for days, didn’t have any food. Jesus could have just told the people to go home, but he didn’t. He wanted to provide for them , the same God wants to provide for you.
At first glance, it would seem impossible to feed 4 thousand people with 7 loaves of bread. But remember our faith is what activates Gods miracles not our understanding. Notice the number of loaves is 7, the symbolic number of completion. One blessing from Jesus and problem solved.
But yet even after all the miracles the disciples had witnessed they still lacked faith. When everyone left and the disciples got into the boat, they began to worry about not having food again. Jesus became so frustrated by their lack of faith. He asked them “Do they still not understand?” (Mark 8:21)
Unfortunately most of us are just like the disciples. No matter how many blessings or miracles God has performed in our lives, we always focus on our current problem. We need to stop focusing on our problem and focus on our “Problem Solver”.
Remember Jesus has compassion for you also, he wants to provide and heal you. Have faith and trust in him in Jesus Name Amen
