Today, I want to empower you with this thought: Jesus can create a multitude out of anything for you when you need it! There was one lad, exactly five loaves of bread, and two fishes in the story of the feeding of the 5,000. The issue was that the entire group was hungry. Despite this, everyone ate and was satisfied because a young boy cheerfully gave up the modest lunch he had brought for himself. Did you catch that part? They didn’t get a limited amount of bread because they were afraid of running out; instead, they ate as much as they wanted until they were satisfied; it was like an all-you-can-eat buffet! Even more incredible, there were 12 baskets of food leftover, which the disciples gathered at Jesus’ command, who told them not to waste any of the bread. Interestingly, the number 12 is related to faith throughout the Bible and is considered as a perfect number that represents God’s might and sovereignty. The Word, you see, is greater than bread!
Friend, when Jesus declared, “Man cannot live on bread alone,” He was implying that bread derives from the Word; in other words, human beings can only be nourished by their Creator. As Christians, we believe that Jesus created the universe by speaking it into existence and that everything under the sun was created by words that birthed energy and life. This is why you don’t ever have to worry about not having enough! Jesus, the Living Word, has spoken His abundant blessings over your life, and He will multiply even the tiniest gift until it overflows! God is all-powerful and all-knowing, but He cares about your needs. Why? Because He loves you more than you can imagine — that’s a reality you can base your life on!
