Believing God for the Miraculous

Read: John 6:1-14

In our passage for today, we see Christ’s disciples casting their focus in the wrong direction. We see Jesus asking Philip where to buy bread from so that the crowd can be fed. Philip’s response showed that he was trying to solve the situation using worldly means. Andrew, at the same time, was trying to approach the situation by surveying the crowd. When he found a boy with five loaves and two fish, his response was “What are they among so many?”

Is Anything Too Hard for the Lord?

Read: Genesis 18:9-15

When we struggle to find answers for our present condition, we worry, fret, complain and get disappointed with God. It is very normal to feel that way due to our human nature. The Bible clearly teaches us that “Nothing is hard for our God.” He is able to answer our prayers in His time. If He needs to prepare us, there might be delay in our plans, but not His. Abraham and Sarah were old and waiting for God’s promise to be fulfilled. From a human viewpoint, it was impossible for Sarah to conceive at the age of 90. But with God all things are possible. We have to believe in our heart that all things are possible by God. Abraham and Sarah received their son Isaac in their old age as God promised. God kept His promise that He would multiply Abraham’s descendants as the stars of the sky and the sands on the sea shore (Gen. 12:1-3).
