KEY SCRIPTURE: John 6:5 KJV” When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat?”
Our Lord is not ignorant of the plight of all men. He is not just aware of our plight but is always moved to do something about it. In our key scripture the multitude thronged Him, to hear the word from His lips, yet they were hungry. The Lord said, where can we get bread to buy for this multitude? The Lord is always concerned about the total well-being of all persons that come to him. These people had come to him, all by themselves. He had not made any promise to feed them and so nothing bound him to feed all these multitudes. He is moved by great passion to alleviate men of their difficulties.
Most men find themselves in all kinds of miserable situations, and they ask, is there a God, who sees all the pain and agony that they go through? Please I want you to know that no matter how long and discomforting a condition may be, God knows about it, and he is indeed ready to save man from it. His name is Jesus, which means Jehovah is Saviour or salvation. On many occasions men are just not ready to receive the help he provides. God has designed that anyone who will partake of His bounties or blessings, must come to him like a little child. This is what is too difficult for most people to do, because they are so sophisticated.
Just consider what our Lord Jesus says about those God reveals His blessings to. Matthew 11:25 KJV” At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes”. Dear one if you would act like a little child and accept God and His words like the little ones do, you would come out of most of your difficulties.
How do children receive promises from parents?
1. Children do not imagine any difficulty about how a condition may be. So long as daddy or mummy promised, to them it is done.
2. Children believe their parents can do whatever they have promised.
3. Once their parents promised it, it is done and so they expect it.
May we be like little children so that our father will be able to do for us those things that we have no answer for. Yes, he wishes to do them for us.
God my father is Lord of all. He freely gives me all good things to enjoy. I humble myself before Him. I accept and believe in all his promises.
THOUGHT: CHILDLIKENESS IS SYNONYMOUS TO TRUST
Matthew 11:28 KJV:” Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Matthew 18:3 KJV “And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.”
