When we feel we do not have enough, we have more than enough, because we have Christ. The disciples said, “We have nothing here but five loaves and two fish.” Also the people reclined, they made no effort for their provision. A final point is that they were not just provided with enough, but more than enough! “And they all ate and were satisfied. And they picked up twelve [small hand] baskets full of the broken pieces left over.“
Let us read this account and have a greater understanding of the Lord’s love for is. This love is not based on our efforts or what we need to do. This love has an abundant supply for us, so much that we in turn can give to others! No matter what we are in need of, let’s simply trust in the Lord our bridegroom that He will continue to provide and that He has an abundant provision for us in every area of our life.
Matthew 14:13-21Amplified Bible (AMP)
13 When Jesus heard it, He withdrew from there privately in a boat to a solitary place. But when the crowds heard of it, they followed Him [by land] on foot from the towns.
14 When He went ashore and saw a great throng of people, He had compassion (pity and deep sympathy) for them and cured their sick.
15 When evening came, the disciples came to Him and said, This is a remote and barren place, and the day is now over; send the throngs away into the villages to buy food for themselves.
16 Jesus said, They do not need to go away; you give them something to eat.
17 They said to Him, We have nothing here but five loaves and two fish.
18 He said, Bring them here to Me.
19 Then He ordered the crowds to recline on the grass; and He took the five loaves and the two fish, and, looking up to heaven, He gave thanks and blessed and broke the loaves and handed the pieces to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people.
20 And they all ate and were satisfied. And they picked up twelve [small hand] baskets full of the broken pieces left over.
21 And those who ate were about 5,000 men, not including women and children.
