Glenn’s Meal 05-05-13

Cinco de mayo 050513

Good morning everyone. Oh give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good yes He is good and He is worthy to be praised. The bible tells us that with God, all things are possible. Sometimes we tend to forget this important fact. Sounds like I got a meal simmering here.

Today’s Prayer

Father, on behalf of my brothers and sisters in Christ I thank you for this day and for the instruction you provide through your Word. Please help us to always have a soft answer to turn away wrath, not harsh words that stir up anger; help us to use knowledge rightly, not to speak foolishness. I pray that our tongues would build up others as a tree of life giving shade and shelter and never speak perverseness that would break the spirit. Let us always receive your instruction and correction with an ear to hear, a mind to accept, and a heart that is humble. I thank you and offer this prayer in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Let’s eat.

Impossible Tasks

But He answered, “You give them something to eat.” – Mark 6:37

If we think about, there have been times in our lives when someone has asked you to do something that seems totally ridiculous. The very suggestion of their request may have brought laughter or even anger for proposing the idea.

I imagine that the disciples may have felt this way when Jesus responded with this comment when they asked him how they were going to feed the 5000, who had stayed around to hear him speak. The disciples suggested a logical answer to the problem, “Send the people away so they can go to the surrounding countryside and villages and buy themselves something to eat” (Mark 6:36).

That wasn’t the answer Jesus wanted. He saw the need of the people. He had compassion on them. He wanted to solve the problem with a Kingdom response, not logic. He asked them what they had in their hands. They thought that what they had was not enough to feed even them.

So often what we already have in our hand is what Jesus wants us to use to solve our problems. We must add faith to what we already have in our hand. Then we will see the gospel of the Kingdom manifested to solve problems in a supernatural way. Jesus wanted to meet a need in which God would receive the glory. Sending the people away did not meet the need, nor did it bring glory to the Father in the situation I just described.

My advice to all of you today is not to settle for the gospel of salvation only. Jesus came so that we might experience the gospel of the Kingdom in its fullest sense. Our job is to look past our logical reasoning and see how God might want to solve our problem in a supernatural way. Remember that His thoughts are not our thoughts and His ways are not our ways. get rid of the stinkin thinkin today.

Quote of the Day

God never simply buries our dead and broken dreams because He’d be burying our hearts along with our dreams. One of two positive things will happen. Either the dream will become fertilizer for something even better, or the Lord will give me the gumption and oomph to bring my dream to fruition. I can’t lose either way!
