Tuesday Prayer: A Step of Faith

But Jesus said to them, "They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat." And they said to Him, "We have here only five loaves and two fish." He said, "Bring them here to Me." Matthew 14: 16-17.

Dear Jesus, The disciples had compassion on the multitide. They saw that the crowd was hungry and there was not much food. They logically suggested to Jesus, to send the multitude away so food could be purchased from the surrounding area. We can only imagine their surprise when Jesus told them to feed the 5000 people. Lord, here is where the miracle happens! The disciples obeyed and started serving what they had. Soon all had been fed and there was even leftovers. Jesus, You have this way of taking our humble resources and turning them into more than enough. Give us courage to say yes when You ask us to meet a need that seems much bigger than anything we could do. Help us always remember that Your resources are unlimited. Amen.
