More Than Enough to Eat

In Matthew 14 we are told about Jesus feeding 5000 men and their wives and children. These people had followed Jesus into a desert area. It was evening and everyone was hungry. Jesus took five loaves of bread and two fishes and fed the entire crowd.

This was a great miracle. With very little food Jesus had been able to feed a very large crowd. In fact, he made so much food that when everyone had eaten all that they wanted to eat, twelve full baskets of left-overs were collected. Jesus had made more food than everyone could eat. Jesus had not just made enough for what he knew the people could eat. He had more than what he knew they could eat.

He does the same with spiritual blessings today (Ephesians 1:3). He has made available more blessings than we can ever use. In Ezekiel 34:26, he calls them "showers of blessings." We can feed on his blessings continuously and yet never use them up. There will always be more available.

Make sure you know how to take advantage of all of the spiritual blessings God gives us. Read your Bible. Study it. Get the wisdom of God. And if any of this is hard to understand, ask an adult to help you.
