EXPERIENCING UNUSUAL MIRACLES : Learning from the Miracle of the Five Loaves and Two Fish
Part 3 of 3
“Then He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed and broke them, and gave them to the disciples to set before the multitude.” (Luke 9:16, NKJV)
After giving thanks (say a blessing), the Lord Jesus broke the loaves and gave them to His disciples to set before the multitude.
Look how amazing our Lord Jesus is. HE involved His disciples in revealing His miracle. The Lord Jesus was teaching His disciples to take action!
From this incident, there are two important things in order for us to experience unusual miracles, namely:
When the Lord broke the loaves and gave them to His disciples to set before the multitude, there was not even one disciple who protested or questioned or made an argument against the Lord’s command. They didn’t say: “Lord, are You kidding? You ask us to distribute this few loaves to the multitude?” Instead, they obeyed without doubt and began to distribute the loaves to the multitude, which numbered about 5,000 men, not counting women and children.
The disciples took action by faith; not based on logic. Because logically, it was definitely impossible. When they began to take action by faith, they saw the miracle took place with their own eyes.
The same thing also happened to the servants that served at the wedding in Cana (John 2:6-9), logically they knew that the water jars were filled with water, and when they drew some out and took it to the master of the banquet, it was water, but when the master of the banquet drank it, Jesus turned the water into the best wine.
Unusual miracles demand unusual act of faith! The Lord desires us to act by faith based on our trust in Him, not on human logic.
Don’t doubt and question God when HE asks us to act by faith, because HE wants to perform unusual miracles in and through our lives.
