The abundance of scarcity

[The Glory Unveiled]

4 His disciples answered, “But where in this remote place can anyone get enough bread to feed them?” 5 “How many loaves do you have?” Jesus asked. “Seven,” they replied. ( Mark 8:4-5 )

In the scripture above, Jesus and his followers were in a situation that seemed like a crisis. And just like anybody will naturally react, the disciples asked the obvious question. It seems that when we lock our senses in the carnal world, we will attempt to solve every problem from that point of view. And the spiritual man also addresses their predicaments from that stand. Interestingly, Jesus ignored the question asked by the disciples because they were apparently not speaking His language. So Jesus went on to ask them what they had? Now, they were looking at a crisis of feeding over five thousand hungry people and in a remote area for that matter too. This implies that, no matter what our challenge may be, the solution is with us—-your little bread. It is possible that you are holding the solutions to your crisis right there in your hand while you seek to go out of town to get it fixed by an “expert”. But if we can just give the little seemingly insignificant bread and fish or staff like Moses did, we would see the glory of God revealed. God is always in the business of unveiling His glory through little things. Remember, God exalts the lowly and humbles the arrogant.

Prayer_Bead: God who supplies seed to the sower and bread for the eater, I bring to your loving attention all that I have. Multiply it and use it to bless nations.
