Topic: What to do when you have to accomplish a humanly impossible task
In each of the four gospels in the New Testament( Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John), they all recorded on how Jesus Christ had fed 5,000 men along with women and children with just two fish and five loaves of bread. That is, Jesus took a little boy sack lunch that consist of 2 little fish(or as some bible scholars would say two little sardines, and five loaves of bread. And with that little boy’s lunch, Jesus was able to feed over 5,00 men, including the women and the children that was in the group, which would add up to about 15,000.
Now there is a lesson that we can learn from Jesus feeding the five thousand with a little boy sack lunch that just consist of two fish and five loaves of bread. And the lesson is that it doesn’t matter how young or old you may be, God can still use you in his service to bless other folk. It doesn’t how rich or how poor that you may be, God can still use you in his service to bless other folk. You may feel that you are not as talented, not as educated, not as anointed, not as knowledgeable as other people, but always remember just as this little boy had surrendered his little ole’ sack lunch to Jesus with two fish and five loaves of bread just to feed five thousand people, God can use you in his service to bless other people in this life. He can use you if just surrender to Him as the Lord and Savior of your life.
Yes, Jesus Christ fed five thousand people with just two fish and five loaves of bread. Now, when you think about it, it is sort of humanly impossible to feed over 5,000 people with just two fish and five loaves of bread. In matter of fact, when Jesus told the disciples to feed the multitude, the disciples, first of all, told Jesus that they did not have enough money to buy food to feed all these people. In other words, they told Jesus that they did not have the resources to accomplish such tasks in feeding five thousand people. And when it was told to Jesus that there was a little boy in the crowd who had a sack lunch that consist of just two fish and five loaves of bread, they even told Jesus that there is no way that they can feed the five thousand with that because it is humanly impossible to feed over 5,000 people with just 2 fish and five loaves of bread. But what may be humanly impossible with man, it is already possible with God because He has all the power in his hands and there is nothing to hard for God. Ephesians 3:20 says, “Now unto him that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.” No matter how tough a situation may look, just know that God is able to turn that tough situation around.
Now notice something here. It was Jesus that told them to do something that was humanly impossible. It was Jesus that told them to feed the multitude. And the point is, if Jesus commands us to do something hat seems humanly impossible to accomplish, then it is the Lord’s responsibility to show us how and to show us what to do when we are faced to accomplish things that seems humanly impossible.
And we have situations throughout the bible where God had helped individuals to accomplish things that were considered humanly impossible.
For example, when God told Abraham and Sarah that they was going to have a child in their old age, that seemed humanly impossible because Abraham was 100 years old, and Sarah was 90 years old. But because they had faith in God, Abraham and Sarah was able to have a son in their old age.
Another example , when God told Moses to lead the children of Israel to cross over the Red Sea, that situation looked humanly impossible because in front of them was the Red Sea, and in back of them was Pharaoh’s army pursuing them to put them back into slavery. But because Moses had faith in God, and obeyed God by using what he had in his hand, which was a long wooden stick that called a “staff”; when he held up the staff over the Red Sea, God moved the waters of the Red Sea back so the Moses and the children of Israel to cross over the Red Sea. And they crossed over it, God told Moses to hold up the staff over the Red Sea again so the waters to go back into its normal position to drown all of Pharaoh’s army who trying to pursue the children of Israel.
