God does so much with just a little. A little can never remain small in God’s hands; God is able to take one fish, a few loaves, and feed thousands. Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. He is not limited by how much we have or how much we don’t have. It’s natural to add a but: an objection to a possible provision when it doesn’t seem practical. As we walk in the supernatural, we change our but this or that to but God!
When a situation is looked at in the natural a but can easily come to mind: “How is it going to work? I have this much, but it’s not going to be enough.” When the but comes, we take it captive by surrendering what we do have in God’s hands. As we do we remember nothing is impossible to God, and God is the God of more than enough. Our but…disappears when we hand it over to Him and know but God! Our circumstances can be trusted in God’s hands. We can hold on when we know God is holding us and He will never let go. A little is much when God is in it.
God used a small stone in a small sling to kill a giant. He used a little maiden girl to lead a Syrian general to Elijah. He used a small child to teach the disciples. The small crumbs were all the Syro-Phoenician believed she needed. He multiplied a little oil in a jar in as many vessels as were made available. We might not have enough, but God is more than enough! We learn to trust and rest in Him, from glory to glory!
John 6:9 “There is a lad here who has five barley loaves and two small fish, but what are they among so many?”
