Molly’s Minute: With Jesus, It’s More Than Enough

Are you wondering today if what you can offer Jesus is enough?

Are you questioning whether He can do anything significant with your abilities? Or with the amount of time or effort that you can give Him?

The disciples sure did. Maybe you’re familiar with the story.

In Matthew 14, Jesus is preaching to a crowd of five thousand men, plus women and children. It’s a lot of people, and they’re hungry. So He tells His disciples to find the crowd something to eat.

But the disciples come back to Jesus and tell him that they were only able to find five loaves of bread and two fish.

The disciples can see that, in their hands, the five loaves and two fish are not enough to feed the thousands of people in front of them. 

But then, Jesus takes it.

He blesses the food and breaks it into pieces, every person in that crowd eats until they’re full, and there are twelve baskets full of leftovers.

Jesus is, by nature, our provider. He is in the business of taking “not enough” and turning it into “more than enough.”

So if you’re looking at what you’ve got and thinking, “There’s no way Jesus can do anything with this,” my friend, hand it over to Him anyway. And watch Him work wonders with it.

Matthew 14:19-20 “Then he ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass, and taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven and said a blessing. Then he broke the loaves and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. And they all ate and were satisfied. And they took up twelve baskets full of the broken pieces left over.”
