Divine Multiplication: Working Miracles Together With Jesus

August 09, 20233 min read

In today's world of convenience and comfort, the story of Jesus feeding the five thousand remains a timeless lesson that reminds us of the power of faith, gratitude, and taking action. This miraculous event, recorded in all four gospels, teaches us how even when faced with what seems insignificant and insufficient, God's hand can turn the little we have into an abundance beyond imagination.

The Unveiling of Miracles in the Everyday

As the disciples returned from their journey of preaching the gospel and casting out demons, they sought solitude with Jesus. However, the crowd's hunger for the Word of God drew them in, echoing the eagerness we should have to pursue divine teachings. Amidst the chaos, Jesus revealed His compassionate heart, a heart that is moved by our hunger for spiritual nourishment.

The Principle of Order and Unity

Before the miracle could unfold, Jesus brought order to the situation. He instructed the multitude to sit down in groups, creating an environment of unity and expectation. This mirrors the importance of aligning ourselves with divine order, even in the midst of life's challenges. Just as Jesus provided a structured setting, we must organize our lives to receive and give as conduits of God's blessings.

Thankfulness as the Key

Jesus took the five loaves of bread and two fish, items that appeared insignificant, and gave thanks. This simple act of gratitude before a seemingly insufficient provision exemplifies the attitude we should cultivate. Gratitude unlocks the supernatural potential of our resources, regardless of their size. When we recognize the blessing within our grasp and thank God for it, He transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary.

Taking Action in Faith

The disciples played a crucial role in this miracle. Jesus didn't perform it alone; He involved His disciples in the process. They were instructed to distribute the meager provision, and as they acted in faith, multiplication occurred. Similarly, we mustn't underestimate the power of our actions. When we step out in faith and obedience, God's hand multiplies our efforts beyond our comprehension.

The Principle of Sowing and Reaping

In 2 Corinthians 9, the principle of sowing and reaping is illuminated. Just as a farmer sows seeds for future crops, we sow our resources into the kingdom of God, trusting in His multiplication. God provides for our needs and multiplies our efforts when we generously give to those in need. Our acts of kindness and generosity lead others to give thanks to God, creating a ripple effect of blessing.

Embracing the "What If It Does" Mentality

In challenging times, doubt can easily creep in, causing us to question the potential outcomes of our actions. Instead of dwelling on "what if it doesn't work," we should adopt the "what if it does" mentality. Jesus challenged His disciples to give thanks for the limited provision they had, even before multiplication occurred. In the same way, we should focus on the possibilities and potential when we step out in faith.

Faith in Action

As you reflect on this transformative story, take a moment to assess the "loaves and fish" in your life—the resources you possess, no matter how modest they may seem. Embrace gratitude for what you have and embark on a journey of faith-driven action. Just as Jesus partnered with His disciples to bring about miraculous multiplication, remember that you are a co-laborer with God, entrusted with the power to impact lives through your generosity and obedience. So, let this story inspire you to cultivate gratitude, take bold action, and expect divine multiplication in all areas of your life.

May your journey be one of abundant generosity and unwavering trust. Here's to a life filled with gratitude and divine multiplication.

May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you. May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace, the absence of all things harmful, the presence of all thing beneficial, nothing missing, nothing broken. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Amen.
