The Principle of God’s Provision – Mark 6:30-44

Jesus and His disciples traveled to an isolated place for a time of rest from their ministry to find a crowd of thousands of people waiting for them. Jesus “had compassion on them because they were like sheep without a shepherd” (Mark 6:34) and taught and ministered to them until late in the day. The disciples wanted to send the crowd away to buy food in the surrounding villages but Jesus commanded His disciples to feed them with the food they already had, which was only five loaves of bread and two fish. So Jesus blessed the five loaves and two fish and divided them up and it miraculously became enough food to feed five thousand men plus women and children with twelve baskets of food left over. This miracle demonstrates the way God provides for our needs. God does not send us a whole bunch of what we do not already have or need. God takes the little that we already have and enlarges or enhances it to meet our need. So here’s the principle: When you offer any and all the resources (or talents and abilities) you possess totally, completely, and willingly to God, He provides for your need by extending, expanding, or enhancing those resources (or talents and abilities), even to an abundance.
