Matthew 14:15-20

"And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals."

"But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat."

"And they say unto him, We have but five loaves and two fishes."

"He said, Bring them hither to me."

"And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude."

"And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up the fragments that remained twelve baskets full."

What do you find yourself falling short of? Energy? Motivation? Self-esteem? Faith? Desire? Money? Knowledge? Here we learn a powerful lesson. If we bring Him our meager amount of whatever it is we desire, the Lord will increase it, leaving us with not only enough, but more than we need.

Additionally, the account teaches that the multitude could have gone back into the village to eat. But the Lord reminded them that they never need depart from His presence in order to be filled. Of course not, for He is the Savior and can do all things, including feeding a hungry mulitude: spiritually and physically.

So they all partook, body and spirit, and were filled, and by so doing were witness to one of the greatest miracles recorded in the New Testament. Do we head off to the village to receive nourishment, or do we choose to stay near to the Savior and feast upon His word? Are we brave enough to trust that he can mulitply our offering, and make it more than enough? I pray that I will have the courage to believe that if I make the offering, the Lord will perform the miracle in my life.
