Nothing To Hard For God

Luke 9:16 (ESV) … “And taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven and said a blessing over them. Then he broke the loaves and gave them to the disciples to set before the crowd.”


As the day drew to its close, the Lord’s disciples, who had come with the multitudes, suggested quite understandably that the people find lodging and food in the surrounding villages. What he wanted to teach them, however, was that the same provision they had received during their missionary journey was available to this vast crowd. The God who sustains the universe would provide. The disciples, who had been the means of healing and blessing to others, must now give food to this crowd (v. 13).


Taking just one meal, Christ multiplied the loaves and fish, and fed the whole crowd. Verse 16 shows how the Lord looked up to heaven, blessed and broke the loaves and fish. Twelve baskets of crumbs were left over, a further proof that nothing is too hard for the Lord. So important is this occurrence to our Lord’s ministry that this incident is recorded in all four Gospels. [1]


Much is going on in our world today that causes us to worry and fret. We must remember that nothing is to hard for God. We must take our lead from Jesus, look up to God and pray while trusting in his mighty had to provide.
