This afternoon Bro. David reminded us to “Consider the Miracle of the Loaves.” Jesus is a great shepherd because He cares about their hunger. There is a problem, but He knows what He is going to do before He asks. He doesn’t ask them to do the impossible, He will only tell us to do what we are able. They are simple directions not complicated. So whatever He says we should do it. He gave us the example of Naaman and Saul. He told them to make all the mean sit down in the one place in the desert He had lead them to where grass was. He provided so great a miracle that 12 baskets of fragments were left. Noting was lost. Just like a good Church meeting, where you may need this sermon later. The apostles will need it, because there is a storm coming. He knew about it, and yet he sent them into it anyway. Faith is trusting His leadership, is what is best for us. He only shows us the next step, not the entire path. However, He knows us, and will come to us in the storm. They were afraid of the storm and later amazed at the power of Christ because “they considered not the miracle of the loaves.” We often forget too, things are bad, but it’s been worse. He told us it would be like this, but we still have the Church, we still have prayer, we still have the 12 baskets of fragments, and immediately after this is all over, we’ll be in Heaven with Him.
