Daily Meditations – Saturday, September 28, 2013

John 6:5,7,8,9 – Jesus looked up then, and seeing that a vast multitude was coming toward Him, He said to Philip, “Where are we to buy bread, so that all these people may eat?” Philip, answered Him, Two hundred pennies worth of bread is not enough that everyone may receive even a little. Another of His disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, said to Him, “There is a little boy here, who has with him five barley loaves, and two small fish; but what are they among so many people?”

Andrew like Philip got caught up in thinking about the problem instead of keeping his attention focused on Jesus.
Jesus didn’t even reply to Philip and Andrew. They hadn’t really listened to His question or grasped what He had been saying. So He didn’t have anything to say to them.

OBSERVATION:

The next time God doesn’t seem to be answering my questions or addressing my concerns, maybe it’s because I haven’t been paying attention to His Word. Maybe it’s because I have been so busy thinking about and reacting to my problems that I’ve failed to listen to and act on what He has already said to me. If that is the case, He doesn’t have any grounds on which to communicate with me.

Affirmations

LIKE PHILIP I HAVE TO STOP SITTING AROUND THINKING ABOUT MY OWN PUNY ABILITY AND WHAT I CAN OR CANNOT DO.

I OPEN MY MOUTH AND CONFIRM THE PROMISE OF MY INHERITANCE IN CHRIST.

I LOOK TO THE UNLIMITED RESOURCES OF HEAVEN.

I THINK OUTSIDE MYSELF AND INSIDE THE WORD — AND LET JESUS BLESS THE WORLD THROUGH ME.
