106. “Bring them here to Me”

Matthew 14:18

5 loaves.

5,000 men.

5 words*.

“Bring them here to Me.”

“Lord, what are five loaves and two small fish among so many? Feed everyone? Impossible!”

“Bring them here to Me.”

“Lord, You might as well say we don’t have anything at all in comparison to this great task.”

“Bring them here to Me.”

“Lord, I can’t do this.”

“Bring them here to Me.”

***

I wonder how many times I have sighed beneath the load, trying to do something for the Lord, feeling helpless, fruitless, failure. Am I trying to feed over 5,000 with 5 loaves?

Are we trying to do the growing for that little seed we sowed, or are we giving that seed to God and watering it with prayer?

Yes, we need to supply those few loaves and fish. God notices the “insignificant.” But how many more would be blessed, and how much more glory would we bring to God, if we truly realized it was His work, His miracle, not ours?

“Bring them here to Me.”
