Will You Give It All?
God waits to see what we're going to do with what we have before He steps in and turns a little into a lot. The Apostle John, in his account of the feeding of the 5,000, tells us that the hero of the story is a little boy. (John 6:9) There are three things to note about this little boy. He gave what he had - The boy didn't have much, but he gave what he had. Never underestimate what God can do through ordinary people and limited resources given to him in faith. If you want to be used by God just get available. He gave God all he had - The boy gave all five loaves and both fish. He didn't hold anything back from God. If you want a miracle in your life, you cannot hold anything back from God. He gave it immediately when it was asked for - The boy didn't hesitate. As soon as it Jesus needed it, the boy gave it to Him. Why don't we give like that when we need a miracle? Either we don't believe that God will take care of our needs if we give sacrificially to him or we think, "What's the use? How could my little bit help?" The important thing is to be willing to give as much as we can. That is what God accepts.
““How much bread do you have?” he asked. “Go and find out.” They came back and reported, “We have five loaves of bread and two fish.””
Mark 6:38 NLT
