Five loaves and two fish. It wasn’t anywhere close to enough food to feed a crowd of thousands, yet everyone got their fill. Plus, there were 12 wicker baskets of bread fragments left over!
We may often feel that we don’t have enough—time, money, knowledge, patience, or ability. When we give thanks for the insufficient resources we do have and trust God to provide for our need, he provides abundantly. I don’t know if the key factor is gratitude or trust in God. Maybe it’s the combination since both are vital to a life of faith. We pray that you discover the abundant provisions God has in store for you this week!
