Topic: WHAT DO YOU HAVE?
Text: Mark 6:35-36, 38
📖35….”And when the day was now far spent, his disciples came unto him, and said, This is a desert place, and now the time is far passed:
📖36….Send them away, that they may go into the country round about, and into the villages, and buy themselves bread: for they have nothing to eat…..
📖38….He saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? go and see. And when they knew, they say, Five, and two fishes.”
🔥Like Jesus’ disciples in Mark 6:35-38, many believers have not been able to see solution within themselves, when in crisis and challenges. In our text, Jesus in verse 38 asked the multitude through the disciples what they had. This he asked them because God always blesses a man from within the man. At creation, God blessed all Adams – Gen 5:2, and hid in man all he needs to prosper – Ecclesiastes 3:11. But many of us have re-hidden what God hid in us from God’s eyes; so God is finding it difficult to use it to bless us, yet they keep asking God to give another thing to them without using that which is hidden within them.
🔥🔥Why do you think God said in Proverbs 18:22 that whoso finds a wife finds a good thing and obtain favour? He said this because the wife is hidden inside the man, as all he needs to prosper. So, if a man is not married, it’s because he has refused to look inward. When the wife of the son of the prophet in 2 Kings 4:1-7 went to ask Elisha for help, Elisha saw the solution within her. Maybe the husband died because of the debt, yet he had a bottle of oil that could have saved him. WHAT DO YOU HAVE?
🔥🔥🔥If Elijah had not met the widow of Zarephath in 1 Kings 17:9-16, she and her son would have died, yet the solution was within them – WHAT DO YOU HAVE? If Phinehas had not used the rod of correction he had in Num 25:7-8 to remove God’s anger from the camp, all the Jews would have probably died. WHAT DO YOU HAVE? The Shunammite woman used giving what she had to a man of God to get a son in 2 Kings 4:8-17. Rebekah used her respect for strangers and elders at the well in Genesis 24 to get married. WHAT DO YOU HAVE? Beloveth, God is always using what we have, hidden in us, if tapped by us, to bless us. Tap the hidden treasure in you today.
🙏O Lord, as you made me and endowed me with invaluable talents, help me to utilize them to your glory, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏My father my father, I know my world, my greatness, my fruitfulness, are hidden in me. Don’t allow me to die without fulfilling all my life goals, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Ancient of days, as the meeting of Elijah with the widow caused her meal to be multiplied, connect me to those that will bring out the best of me, in Jesus’ name.
THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
