Morning Meditation –

“Where are we to buy bread so that these people may eat?” (John 6:5, ESV)

It’s obvious!  The disciples had no ability to feed the crowd of 5,000.  Yet, our Lord asks a question that would lead the 12 to the inexorable conclusion that there are some needs that only God can meet.

Over and over again, life meets the impossible.  It’s unavoidable.  We come to places where we must choose either to believe God, or give up on things ever changing.  With regularity, life throws at us challenges that test our resolve to go deeper rather than retreat.

Let your challenges, today, be a call rather than a place of resistance.  Accept that the challenge of moving mountains is normal.  Life is not picking on you; the impossible comes to us all.  Tribulations are normal…trials come with regularity.  We simply have to decide that God in us is up to the challenge of leading us through them all.

    Thinking about your comments, I can see that the situations and circumstances of life are not the “mountain” it is our lack of trust and surrender to God…

    You know, if it wasn’t for the expectation of the hand of God showing up in our trials by either strengthening us in it or delivering us out of it , I’d be a basket case right now! I like where you said ” life is not picking on us” currently, I locked myself out of my apartment…,.. yeah just hanging out in the hall (reading your meditation) LOL

  3. What great inspiration and encouragement!
    What looks impossible IS actually the normal; the place God’s greatness is being revealed! What a reversal from the worldly view which declares a life of ease is what we chase after.
