KEY SCRIPTURE: John 6:9 KJV There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?
Andrew after finding a lad with some loaves of bread and two fishes announced it to the master, but asked, what is that among so many people? Everything on its own is ordinary, but if it gets into God’s hands, it becomes a mystery.
Moses’ rod was for tending his sheep. When God took hold of it, the whole of Egypt could not stand its might. The following is a word of wisdom.
You are an ordinary person as an individual, but if you should yield totally to the Lord, you would become a wonder to the world.
Andrew asked, what are those few fishes in comparism to the hungry multitude. The Lord just asked everybody to be seated in an organised manner. God does not see as men see. If you are vested with the truth, you do not argue with the ignorant, you prove it.
Why is it still difficult for most men to work miracles as demonstrated by the master Jesus? It is all about men’s knowledge of God and their level of fellowship with Him. The next is the influence of the worldly limitations over the minds of men. Men of great impact in their faith lives normally in this world as aliens. Lester Sumrall once said, the first day he entered Smith Wigglesworth’s office with a newspaper, Smith screamed at him to take it out of his sight, because it was a package of lies. Smith Wigglesworth read only the bible. This great man of God saw a number of dead people raised back to life. He raised his dead wife back to life, yet she requested that he allowed her to go to be with the Lord, and so, He allowed it, she slept off and died again.
In our last study we said that, God our father is Almighty whiles men are limited by what their minds can accept.
A man is either going to be great spiritually or weak, depending on how much he had upgraded his mindset about God’s ways and acts.
This can be achieved by feeding on the word of God and not giving in to worldly deceptions that contaminate the truth of God. Apostle Paul advices us in the following verse as follows, Hebrews 4:11 KJV “Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.” The word used as ‘labour’ means to be diligent to enter into the rest of God, by allowing God’s word to dominate us.
THOUGHT: TO PLACE YOUR LIFE TOTALLY IN GOD’S HANDS, MAKES YOU AN INSTANT WONDER.
2nd Timothy 2:21 KJV” If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.”
Jeremiah 51:20 KJV” Thou art my battle axe and weapons of war: for with thee will I break in pieces the nations, and with thee will I destroy kingdoms;”
