The Blessing of Multiplication – Beloved Women – August 8, 2023
“Jesus then took the loaves, and when he had given thanks, he distributed them to those who were seated. So also the fish, as much as they wanted. And when they had eaten their fill, he told his disciples, ‘Gather up the leftover fragments, that nothing may be lost.” - John 6:11-12 ESV
The story of Jesus feeding the five thousand is a great example of how He can take our little, bless it, and multiply it. I find hope in this story because it is so easy for us to only see where our limits are and what we lack.
Jesus’ multiplying of the fish and loaves for the people gathered around Him, shows me how much more He is in control. It is a reminder of how I should always see my limitations as an opportunity for Him to bless me and show Himself great.
Whatever you are believing God for in this season, it is my prayer that you thank God for what you have currently. Be encouraged to see your limitations differently and see God take your little and grant you so much more.
Father, I ask that you help me to see my limitations differently. Please help me to take my eyes off what I can’t do or don’t have and fix my eyes on you. Show me what it means to give it all over to you. In Jesus Christ’s Name, I pray, Amen.
What area of your life do you need to hand over to your Heavenly Father and allow Him to bless and multiply it?
