Call It Blessed

In Luke 9 it says that Jesus sent out the disciples and gave them power and authority over all demons and to heal diseases. And He sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God, and to perform healing. As they went about the villages doing as Jesus instructed, Herod heard all that was happening; and was greatly perplexed, thinking that John the Baptist had raised from the dead.

When the disciples returned giving an account of all they did, Jesus took them with Him and withdrew to the city of Bethsaida. But the multitudes were aware of it and followed them. Jesus did not turn them away, yet He welcomed them and He began speaking to them about the kingdom of God and curing those who had need of healing.

As the sun began to set, the twelve disciples came to Jesus and told Him to send the multitude away that they may go into the surrounding villages to obtain food and lodging. But Jesus said, “YOU give them something to eat!” He had already given them POWER and AUTHORITY earlier in the day, but they didn’t quite know how to use what was given to them. It seemed impossible to them unless they should go and buy them all food as they only had five loaves and two fishes between them.

Jesus, seeing their faithlessness, decided to demonstrate for them how to provide for the people. He had them sit in groups of fifty. Then He took what He had, looking up to heaven, He blessed it and broke it. He kept dividing it and supplying it until everyone ate and was satisfied. They gathered up all that was left over and it equaled TWELVE baskets full!Our God is One Who ENJOYS supplying ALL of our needs. We need to follow the example of Jesus. Do not despise what we have, for it will be a seed to sow and when we call it blessed, it will multiply until EVERY need is met. And there will be PLENTY leftover. That’s God’s will for us! He is the supplier, but it’s going to take us using the authority He has already given us and walking in His power to get the job done!
