“The Father initiates; we respond.”; author Robert Whitlow’s main message point yesterday. My question: how do I respond?
He answered by poking me again this morning using John 6:9 “Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they go among so many?” Andrew, I get why you asked. Sometimes I ask the same question, “What have I got to give when there is so much to do?”
When given to Jesus, our small, no matter how small, is multiplied. It didn’t matter to Jesus the odds were a million to one that this small lunch would have any impact on the crowd. In His hand, the impact was huge.
First thing Jesus did was create order; He had the people sit down. I love that even though He is about to perform a crazy big miracle, He was still the God of order.
Next, He gave thanks. First things first…He gave thanks to the Father for what He did have; no matter the size.
Then…God did His part. GOD DID HIS PART! I just want to jump up and down and say “YEAH….THAT is the God I serve! I do my part and He does His which is nothing short of miraculous!
What is the thing in your life that seems so big your part seems like it is next to nothing? Is it the lives of those you love; those who are spinning out of control and you just want to make it stop? What would be your part? Prayer. Fasting. Humility to ask others to pray. Being open to speak if and when the Holy Spirit says “Go!”
I have several things in my life that are bigger than my small. My passion is to see teen girls find their hearts filled with the revolutionizing passion Jesus has for them. So many; so hurting. Father, will you take my small, my speaking, my writing, my book this spring and make a miraculous impact for you?
A new passion burning in my heart is for those children caught in sex trafficking. Lord, it is so big; I am so small. Take my small efforts and multiply them to rescue and heal.
My small + His big = Miraculous
