标 题： 看似不可能的事
经 节： 耶稣说：“不用他们去，你们给他们吃吧！”（马太福音十四章16节）
Don’t Avoid the
But Jesus said
to them, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to
eat.” (Matthew 14:16)
Jesus asked His disciples to do something that clearly was impossible.
There were five thousand men, along with their families, and they were
famished. There were only five loaves of bread and two small fish—obviously not
enough to feed a multitude. The cost of food for even a portion of the crowd
would have far exceeded the disciples’ small budget. It may have seemed absurd
to the disciples that Jesus should ask them to distribute the paltry amount of
food to the massive crowd. Yet that is exactly what Jesus asked them to do.
Because Jesus had given the command, the disciples obeyed and witnessed an
Christ will lead you into many situations that will seem impossible, but
don’t try to avoid them. Stay in the middle of them, for that is where you will
experience God. The key difference between what appears to be impossible to us
and what is actually possible is a word from our Master! Faith accepts His
divine command and steps out in a direction that only God can complete. If you
only attempt things that you know are possible with the visible resources you
possess, those around you will not see God at work. You will be the one who
receives the credit for a job well done, but God will have no part in it.
Take inventory of your life and the decisions you are presently facing.
Have you received a word from the Master that awaits your next step of faith?
If you will proceed with what He has told you, no matter how incredible it
might seem, you will experience the joy of seeing your Lord perform a miracle,
and so will those around you.
