What Does Five Loaves and Two Fish Have To Do With Anything?
Since God's "divine power has granted us everything pertaining to life and godliness through the true knowledge of Him who called us" (2 Peter 1:3), and since " the things impossible with men are possible with God." (Luke 18:27), we know that we are able to walk in the good works that He created for us to do (Ephesians 2:10). We may feel challenged and "ungifted" but the truth is that we all have purpose and that was determined before time began. It's God's job to bring forth results and it's our job to show up with five loaves of bread and two fish (Matt. 14:17-20). Yesterday I wrote about using your talents. Well today I'm telling you that's sometimes a step of faith in the face of all that says, "It's impossible! Don't waste your time and everyone else's too! You're laughable!" Just do what you can. God will see it to fruition.
