Little Things That Matter To God

Key Verse

“And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven, and a few little fishes” (Matthew 15:34).

TEXT — Matthew 15: 32-39


Quite often, we focus on our personal inadequacies, the talents and abilities we lack. We neglect our little endowments and gifts, and conclude that nothing worthwhile can come from us. As a result, we give up easily or become discouraged. We forget that God does not work by the enormity of our spiritual or physical possessions, but by His own sovereign power.

Jesus had been in a retreat with His followers. After three days of going without food, He became concerned about the wellbeing of the people. He would not send them home on empty stomach, “lest they faint in the way”. He turned to His disciples to inquire about their stock of food. They promptly informed Him that it was not much; just seven loaves and few little fishes.

However, Jesus was not looking for a large store of food; He has the power to multiply few loaves into a large provision for multitudes. So, He commanded the people to sit in an orderly manner. He picked up the few loaves of bread and fishes, gave thanks to God, and handed same to His disciples to distribute among the people. Quite amazingly, everyone ate to their fill, leaving seven surplus baskets of the remnants of the food. Beside women and children, there were about four thousand men in the gathering that benefited from the miraculous multiplication of the little food.

God does not need our help to do anything for us. He only demands that we believe in His ability to do anything we may require to live fruitfully. Our faith is the key that unlocks God’s supernatural works. It enables us to believe that He can do anything, and it makes us to approach the Lord with confidence and assurance that whatever the situation, God “is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think”. Your little faith, like the mustard seed, can accomplish great things.
