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.
