IT DEPENDS WHOSE HANDS ITíS IN
A basketball in my hands is worth about $19
A basketball in Michael Jordanís hands is
worth about $33 million
It depends whose hands itís in

A baseball in my hands is worth about $6
A baseball in Mark McGuireís hands is worth $19 million
It depends whose hands itís in

A tennis racket is useless in my hands
A tennis racket in Pete Samprasí hands
is a Wimbledon Championship
It depends whose hands itís in

A rod in my hands will keep away a wild animal
A rod in Mosesí hands will part the mighty sea
It depends whose hands itís in

A sling shot in my hands is a kidís toy
A sling shot in Davidís hand is a mighty weapon.
It depends whose hands itís in

Two fish and 5 loaves of bread in my hands
is a couple of fish sandwiches.
Two fish and 5 loaves of bread in Godís
hands will feed thousands It depends whose hands itís in

Nails in my hands might produce a birdhouse
Nails in Jesus Christís hands will produce
salvation for the entire world.
It depends whose hands itís in

As you see now it depends whose hands itís in.
So put your concerns, your worries, your fears,
your hopes, your dreams, your families and
your relationships in Godís hands because

It depends whose hands itís in.(Author Unknown)

11 So Gad came to David, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Choose thee
12 Either three yearsí famine; or three months to be destroyed before thy foes, while that the sword of thine enemies overtaketh thee; or else three days the sword of the LORD, even the pestilence, in the land, and the angel of the LORD destroying throughout all the coasts of Israel. Now therefore advise thyself what word I shall bring again to him that sent me.
13 And David said unto Gad, I am in a great strait: let me fall now into the hand of the LORD; for very great are his mercies: but let me not fall into the hand of man.

To the Disciples the five loaves and two fishes were just a meal for a few in their hands but in the hands of our Lord it was a meal for thousands. Five thousand beside women and children. Lets asume 2/3 were married that makes 8334 people then of the 4167 familys lets assume they all had 1 child that makes 4167 more people for a total of 12,501 people with just five loaves and two fishes only in HIS hands.

John 6:
1 After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias.
2 And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased.
3 And Jesus went up into a mountain, and there he sat with his
